338 Lapua Ordered (First custom, so excited)

Finally broke down and ordered my custom .338 Lapua yesterday from GA Precision, so excited!!! Here's what I ended up with:

Caliber: .338 Lapua Mag Std
Action: GA Templar LA (Similar to a Nesika)
Trigger: HS Precision Trigger Guard, 3 round mag, Modified remington trigger @ 2.5 lbs
Barrel: 27", 1-9.7" twist, fluted, #4 contour (1.2" - 0.750") - black matte finish
Stock: Manners MCS-T, Finished in a nifty flecktarn pattern
Badger 20MOA rail
VAIS Brake
Some bipod (TBD)

I'm theory it's gonna weight under 9lbs w/o scope, and hold 1/2moa accuracy.

GAP said 4 month build time, can't wait!

Gonna top it off with a NXS3.5-15x50 Mil-dot scope w/ Mil turrets.

Sounds like a great and well thought out rifle. I sure have no regrets of my .338 LM.

Comgrats!!
