Which Companies Are Making Rifles in .408 Chey Tac?

I'm very interested in getting a rifle in .408 Chey Tac, but have only been able to find one company, Prarie, that is making rifles in .408 Chey Tac. However, as good as Prarie is, they're a Canadian company. I really don't like buying rifles from companies that are not in the US because you have to send your rifle out of the States to have any work done on it. The same problem with AI. Both the British and Canadian governments are fickle, liberal-based, anti-gun Governments. With a wave of the pen they could make it illegal for you to send your rifle into or out of their countries. Thus a lifetime warranty from a company that you can't ship to - is worthless. Sorry to be so long-winded, but I'm interested in strictly American made rifle companies. Thanks.

I know EDM ARMS makes the two original rifles, Mcmillan makes an action big enough to handle it but you might have to get someone to barrel and chamber it.Than again they might be interested in getting the reamer.Maybe!
You could also get the EDM action for around 1,400 dollers [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] send it to a good gunsmith and have him build it.

What style of gun were you looking at? Heavy Benchrest or Hunting?

Give George Gardner of GA Precision a call at (816) 221-1844. Several guys on this sight have his rifles and can vouch for his quality. I don't know if he has built the 408 yet but it's worth a phone call.

I'm going to have my .408 build by Prarie. Canada is one of many allies of the US and we share the same continent so I don't really care. The military trusts them and so do I.

That is why I won't hunt in Canade, I will stick to the continental US and Alaska. I would have the gunsmith by my house fix it.

Adding to my last post I will soon by part of the Military anyway. I wasn't trying to start a fight. That is if that is how you took it.
