Re: action needed

What are you using it for Targets or hunting? I have never seen a BAT 408 action or heard from anyone who has one but if they are anything like their others I wouldn't use them as a hunting action they are to Damn tight.

Look into hte stiller actions they came up with a 408 action I'm not sure of the configurations of it they have though. I'm not really impress with the Lawton actions now I will say.

Re: action needed

I've played (very little) with a BAT in 375 Cheytac or 375 AM, I can't remember which, it did feel pretty tight, but I guarantee the guy who owns is will hunt with it; we'll see how it turns out. Stiller makes great actions, but as stated before I can't remember if they offer something big enough to handle the 408 or not. If you want some good info on Lawton I suggest going over to SnipersHide I search for "Lawton", the virtually unanimous results are that of a company spiraling downward quickly. I've never dealt with them & have only have experience with one of their actions in 408.

I had a Lawton actioned 338 lapua imp and I sold it becouse of there customer support is as crude as it gets! 4 months to get a replacement bolt stop and endless runaround with deadend phone calls and emails! After some thinking Im gunna do the lapua imp again be'n I have the dies brass and bullets. I checked out DEFIEANCE MACHINE actions today and they look promising.
