Re: Custom Long Range 338LM

AB,
Can definitely do something on the CZ 550. If you want stainless we'd go Remmy.
The CZ is the cheapest way to go. By the way my wife is second in command at CZ.

Re: Custom Long Range 338LM

Thanks Chris, any truth to the rumor that CZ is coming out with stainless actions next summer?

Also have you ran across the
Montana Rifleman actions. More info can be found here. What are your thoughts on this action.

Re: Custom Long Range 338LM

Chris have you all had any problems with the c-clip coming off on the CZ550's? There have been some serious concerns with this happening. E-mails have been sent to Alice at CZ, the gunsmiths there said that there was no problem [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. If you want to read all about this check over at Accurate Reloading under gunsmithing and big bores.

Re: Custom Long Range 338LM

CZ will have a SS action for WSM's (a whole new action), but not any of the 550's.
As far as the clip thing, it looked like it was a one time occurance, however it is a poor design. CZ has switched back and forth a couple of times and my 338 Lapua doesn't have it. Built around ten Lapua's on it and haven't had any problem's yet. Looked like to me it was a couple of weenies with too much on their hands and had nothing better to do than complain about it. Can't please evrybody all of the time...

As far as your weather concerns... don't sweat it... even if I build it on a CZ, it will be teflon coated so rust isn't too much of a concern...
Later... it's my bed time.
Chris
