Re: 408 cheytac

If you are interested in a "true" .408 CheyTac rifle built by CheyTac, call them and ask who is a dealer in your area.

You'll find that most of the guys on here shoot wildcat versions based on the .408 case.

These rifles can be built for a lot less money and will far exceed the accuracy of the .408 from CheyTac.

BAT, Lawton 8000, Poff, Barnard, Viersco, Stiller (not available yet).
May be one or two more, but these are off the top of my head.

Your action choice depends on whether you want a single shot or repeater.
Lawton and Viersco currently offer repaeater versions, Stiller is on the way.
