Re: Custom Build Questions
Just for some reassurance, I plan to make my next build with a Savage target action. I have had the chance to shoot a custom build using this action in a .338 Lapua mag. Very crisp trigger and you can build practically any caliber on this action. I am a short action fan so my vote would go to the 6.5x284. One thing to remember is that both of these chamberings are going to be extremely fast and going to burn barrels. Just a little FYI. I think they will serve you well though. You should be able to get about 3000rnds in the either caliber out of barrel.
