    If you can find a Rem700 go with that as you will already have the bottom metal. Otherwise a Stiller Predator magbolt face would be good. Might concider a singleshot also.

    I would use a 9 lug Weatherby MK V in .300 Wby or .340 Wby. The factory mag box will handle a 3.8" C.O.A.L. You can find a donor rifle that will have everything you need, except maybe a better trigger, for less money than a custom action by itself with no trigger, mag box, follower or bottom metal.

    The rifle will still be a custom no matter which action you choose.

    Good luck, Tom

    I agree with Specweldtom, I have done about as many 338-300 ultramags as anybody and the best action by far and away for this cartridge is the Mk 5 wby. It is a natural for this cartridge. It will feed better and shoot better than anything. The best ones I did were on the mk 5. It requires no modifications.
