Re: factory actions for .338 lapua

With the edge I would have to fire form brass right? I am lost in the sauce with that, I think the lapua would be less of a headache for me

Re: factory actions for .338 lapua

No fire forming.. one run of the die through the case and your good to go.. (just necking up from 30 to 338) but you must roll your own if you go with the edge.. i suggest rolling your own either way.. the brass is better with the lapua.. I have both.. if i did it all over again.. I would just went straight lapua.. maybe improve.. maybe...

A 338 RUM is even easier yet!

See Lilja's comments (article) on the "safety" issue at Lilja Precision Rifle Barrels - Articles: 378 Weatherby Cases in the Remington 700 Action? While he is addressing the 378 Weatherby, the bolt face is the same and the 338-378 Weatherby is at a similar power level to the 338 LM.

If you want to know who is building actions for 338 LM, see the Receiver matrix at Products - Rifle Components

Me, I'd go with a .750" (or larger) bolt.
