Question For Kirby (Fifty)???????
Kirby, as mentioned before, I am going to build a Long Range Tactical Rifle. The caliber I am wanting to build is your 338 Allen Mag. I would like to use my BAT Model 8.5 action, that is currently on my 6.5x284. I believe the port Dia is 3.35. Can you build the 338 Allen Mag on this action? This is what I am thinking about for this project;
1. BAT 8.5 Action, 1.55 Dia, 3.35 port Dia
2. Kriger 30", 1.250 straight Tapper, 1-10 twist
3. McMillan A-5, Thumbwheel Cheek piece, 3 Way Spacer System, and about 6 pounds of lead added to stock
4. Jewell Trigger
5. Vais Muzzel Brake
6. Davidson Base with 20MOA
7. Kelby Rings
8. Nightforce 5.5x22x56 NXS
9. This rifle should weight around 26lbs
Most of the parts I have listed above, are already in my possesion. The only thing I don't have is the stock. I have already orderd the Barrel. If you think the 338 Allen Mag will be to much for this set up, let me know. My second choice, of caliber, would be the 30-378 Weatherby. Sorry for the long question, I just need your advice because, of course, the 338 Allen Mag is your Baby. Thanks, in advance Kirby for your help.
