Re: anyone build a 338 LM on a Number 1??

I agree with hot enough loads you could probably ruin about anything. The beauty of the #1 is it balances out so well with a 30" barrel and is still fairly light weight. With the 30" barrel it is still about the same length as a standard action with a 26" tube on it. Several years back I built several big 338's on the #1 and was able to work out the trigger and accuracy issues with them. They are still handy little rifles with the long barrels.

    Agree 100%. I had a 30" Lilja on my Ultra and it was 1/2" shorter overall than my 700 Rem. with a 26" tube. I am currently building a 300 Sherman on a B-78 for the same reason.....Rich

    Thanks to all, I appreciate the responses.

    I'll ship up to some very competant gun wizards.

    Surfing through Brownells, they have some triggers, faster hammers and barrel tensioners.

    The shop has effective muzzle breaks and a good assortment of barrels.

    Thanks again!
