Re: Building a 338 Lapua improved??
I have one that is built on a Lawton action, but if I was starting from scratch, I would use the Stiller TAC 338 or Predator Extreme (same action except the TAC 338 is black). All of my LR rifles are single shot so can not comment on bottom metal or magazines.
Just MAKE SURE that the reamer used is set up for the 300 Berger seated to mag length, because when you seat that long bullet to mag length, what ever that turns out to be you will need very little freebore compared to a single shot, mine has a .240 freebore my OAL with a 300 Berger is 3.953 with about a .0015 jump.
