In that case,
I would do alittle more research on the caliber over at sniper'shide.
As far as caliber, I would go 338 or 375 , not 408.
Those 2 will outshine the 408 ballistically.
For a gunsmith, there are a few guys that have built these,
Dave Viers of Viersco Mag,
Bruce Baer in Pennsilvania,
Kevin Cram of Montour rifles
A couple of years ago I had Bruce Baer and Joel Russo build me a 338 in a 16# platform. Hell of a gun and caliber. 300gr SMK's at 3200fps
