Surgeon XL Action

Gents,

I am new to this Forum, and have read through many of the threads. I am no stranger to long range shooting, having competed in FCSA 1000 yd matches for 15 years, (2-Gun National Champion 1998 - 2002) and spent a good deal of time shooting my 50 on a military base out to 2000yds. I have recently acquired a .338 Lapua, Nesika Action, Obermeyer 28" barrel, McM A5 stock. I've just started getting dope with the BH 300 SMK ammo, and now have some of the Lapua 250 Scenar ammo. It is a tactical rifle. I am interested if anyone has tried the new Surgeon XL action, as I am thinking of building another rifle. I am also interested in recommendations for building a 408/375 CT class rifle, which actions are suitable etc. Thanks in advance for any info and advice.

Scott N.

    Scott,

    My first choice for a 408 action would be from Barney Lawton, second choice BAT.

    I thought the Surgeon XL was too small for the 408. Am I correct?

    Xtreme Machine makes a kick-***** action that is EDM wired. $1650 but the tolerence is .0003

    Thanks for the info guys. Yes, I knew the Surgeon XL was designed for the .338. I guess my post was confusing, as I was actually asking 2 questions.

    1. If anyone had any experience with the Surgeon XL, and their thoughts? (As I want to build a 2nd .338LM)

    2. What actions are suitable for a .408 based rifle?
    (For another project)

    I will check out Lawton, BAT and Extreme Machines.... Thanks!

    Scott
