Re: American factory 338 Lapua
Shoot a 338 Lapua quite frequently in a target action. It uses a 223 bolt face due to ejector placement and currently shooting 300SMK's without any issues. It will eject a spent case, but a loaded round you have to pull the bolt. I seriously doubt Savage is going to turn out something their engineering can't handle.
