Re: 338 Lapua tactical rifle?

sr90,

I bought the gun off Dave King 4 years ago. He built it or had it built. I can't remember if the action was trued or not. I will get you the barrel taper tonight. As for the Magwell. I load my ballistic tips to 3.716 OAL and they feed just fine. I was looking at shooting the Barnes bullet but the only data I could fine had the OAL over 3.8 which will not fit in the Magwell.

As for weight. I have never weighed it. I would guess around 10 - 12 pounds. I have shot it offhand before it is not to bad for the first two shots but she gets real heavy fast.

Matt

The gun was built by R. W. Hart & Son of Nescopek PA, I'm pretty sure they did everything correctly.

Thanks Dave,

I know we talked about it when I bought it. But I could not recall the specifics.
