Hi Spanners, Sorry about that I didnt see that you were from NZ.

Heres another angle for you! You can use a Barnard P action with a Mag bolt face and chamber it for 300-338 RUM aka 338 Edge, One is being built by Trueflite soon, as soon as they have the reamer from PTG,and the advantage 300-338 vs 338 LMI would probably bugger all.

As for weight personally I like wouldnt like mine any lighter than what it is( 7 kgs), for recoil sake, and if you go for a reasonable barrel profile and length thats going to get the weight up there no matter how light your action is.

Either way these big guns a great fun all the best for the build,Im sure any top end action will give you what you want.

Regards 300WSMMAD

It is hard to beat a BAT action for this round, like their slogan says "buy the best and cry once".
