Re: Where to start with building a 338?

I am familiar with the rifle, I was just curious about the trigger, which you addressed. Many thanks for the info. I am not that up on Sakos, I just have the model 550 in .338 Lapua and the 995 in the Lazzeroni Warbird. I see a lot of the TRG's for sale, and considering their reputation, I don't know what that is all about. Guys that just need the money, I guess. The TRG's definitely look cool and obviously shoot.

OOPS! That's embarrassing. I have way too many guns and am getting way to old. My .338 Lapua is not a Sako, it is a CZ 550. Sorry about that. I just had Sako on my mind, I guess. The 995 is definitely a Sako. It says so, right there on it!

I do not presently own a TRG, but I am sure that if I live long enough I will, along with John Lazzeroni's tactical. I am acquainted with several serious long range shooters, and they are very knowledgeable and regard the TRG as the gold standard of long range rifles. Their only weakness, if it even could be called one, is that their weight pretty much eliminates them as a hunting rifle unless you are fortunate to hunt somewhere where you do not have to travel very high or very far. But they were not really designed for that purpose anyway, so the point is pretty moot. And, for the quality of the rifle, the price is really pretty reasonable.
