Been hearing the Remington action is not ideal for the the. 338 lapua. I will be dropping the cash for my new gun soon and would like some input before I commit. That being said I love rem 700 actions, will I be safe?
I know it might not be what you want to hear... but for the money you are going to spend on getting just a rem lapua action.. I would go custom.. I just got a Defiance for my new build on a lapua case.. and its one of the nicest actions I've ever played with.. plus the order time was only about a month and a half..
Look at poll at bottom of this page.338 LAPUA action.Good info,you can get a great rifle for that that is real close to custom.I plan on getting a Sako TRG when I get enough fun tickets.The Weatherby Accumark TRR is a look alike with similar features.I have a mark V, and a Defiance,and have shot the Sako, the 2 factory are nice for the money
