Re: 338 snipe-tac project (338-408imp)

Just a update on the project:

I got the stock in this week! Looks awesome, Bob at Lone Wolf stocks did a great job on my special order. The reamers came back from re-grinding also, i had them altered just a bit. In the mean time from when i posted this, i have taken an order for another one...Ti action, Carbon wrapped bbl, carbon/kevlar stock, magazine feed. Cutting Titanium will keep you busy for sure! I started with a 2" piece of Ti stock, it will be flat bottomed, with flats milled on sides and top (octagon based).

I will post some pics as the project progresses.

Kirby: I like the looks of your V-Block system on another thread. I may have to try that on a up coming project.

I put a bit more taper back into the case, the first test was with .012 case taper, i brought it up to .020, i wanted easier extraction for repeater type rifles. There is plenty of internal capacity so this change is nominal.

BD408,

Looks like your about ready to make alot of noise and send heavy bullets far far away!!!

Keep us posted as to your results. As you know, I have an great deal of personal interest in your results as we are building ballistic twins of each other.

By the way, final componant(receiver) arrived for my 338 AM project. Now just have to get some time to build it!!!

Keep on pushing, good stuff!!

Hi Black Diamond,
I have checked out your site and admire your workmanship eapecially your actions.
i have a question about bolt lug ways, do you utilize full length bolt lugways or do you use bolt lug recesses and a bolt where the lugs are the same diameter as the bolt body, also do you EDM the lugs ways.

Centre Punch:

Thanks for looking at my site! I use both types of actions, but mostly i use the full bolt style that requires no EDM machining. I make them in two or three locking lug bolts. Some of my customers prefer the three lugs for a short bolt lift 65 deg vs the 90 deg of rem style actions.
Full bolt style actions are a bit longer than Cut raceway actions, 3/4" on average. My actions also have longer thread tennons and larger dia for bigger cartriges.

Dave

Kirby,

Keep me posted on your 338AM as well. I hope to fire form some cases next week for the SnipeTac.
