Re: Help me a pick a 338 chambering

I wouldnt run a .338-.378 on a remmy action. Not to say that the remmy's are bad, they just have limitations. I would go with the Norma, even thought the case is a litttle fat for the cartridge, it was designed with the m700 in mind. That or the .338 RUM. which I have and love!

Re: Help me a pick a 338 chambering

I have to agree w/ Grit, Norma. I am not a smith and have been advised by 2 different smiths not to do Lapua on REM. action,then seen it done like Ward Brian on Norma and tons of shots down the tube. The Norma is nice fore me because it is efficent and has good capability. I would like to have one as just a shooter kick around gun,really help your long range game, when you just shoot the Crap out of something that is close to what you hunt with.And I am talking 1000+ PRACTICE

I'm just going to do another edge! I got it on the lathe and it's fitted to the action only thing left to do is run the reamer in and crown the barrel. My edge weighs 17.6 lbs unloaded and this one will be alot easier to pack. Will get some pics up when I get it up and running.
