Re: Curtis action

Joel knows that QC as part of Lawton and Rampro actions issues. Market has a lot of good actions now so quality and price point have to be on. Good luck with the venture!

Re: Curtis action

I'm interested to hear the specs on 338 action. Mainly the length of the barrel threads and max OAL for the repeater ammo.

Re: Curtis action

We realized that the AI mag at 3.645" is not long enough to handle the 300 grain bullets in a repeater configuration, so we are designing our own DBM and mag. We have not finished the design as our main focus is to hit the market with the standard long and short action first, then roll out the Lapua and dedicated .408 action...

Spot on Joel, I'm glad your team recognized this & are taking the appropriate action. I finally gave up on AI mags with the 338 & 300 grainers...
