Re: 338 Lapua Custom Rifle Ideas
Thanks for the info.
I chose the 338 Lapua for two reasons. First, I wanted a long range performer that packs a punch at a long distance. Second, I like the quality of Lapua brass and don't mind forking out a little extra for it. Do you have other suggestions of a cartridge that might be superior to the 338 Lapua? Also, it sounds like you are a gunsmith. If you were building a long distance hunting and shooting gun, would you do something like I outlined or would you do something different. Finally, could you provide me with your contact information so we could talk more in depth about this project?
I have not heard much about BAT actions. I am curious as to why your gunsmith prefers them to Nesika actions. What advantages do they offer? Like I said, this is mostly new to me, so I am relying on people who have experience in building a long rang rifle. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. I would love to hear more details about your project gun if you would be willing to share them. Finally, who are you using to make your rifle?
