Re: Building a 338 RUM

If you go laminated I really like the LSS take off stocks but boyds makes good stuff too. I bought one of their stocks for a 6mm I put together and it was a nice stock. Maybe a nice HS Precision sporter stock if you want to cut down on weight.

    JD338, you posted some of the best groups I've ever seen out of a big bore true hunting rifle on my first post. ( Loads wanted for a 30" barrel 338 RUM ) I am shooting your secret recipe in the morning. When you get your new one built, what are you doing with your current rifle?????

    The pictures I posted earlier are my 280 AI.

    My stock M700 LSS 338 RUM shoots pretty good for a factory rifle.

    JD...those groups are worth way more than 49 cents

    Nice shooting!

    Alot more than 49 cents. I shot JD's secret recipe in my new 338 RUM and they shot great. I had a brake put on mine and it's really sweet, kicks like a 243. I can't figure out how to post a pic here or I would. If you're curious about a 50BMG style brake that is scaled down, and weighs only ounces, go to www.boys50bmgatr.com and scroll down towards the bottom and you can see some. I wish someone smarter than me would send me how to post a picture here. Thanks

    Someone else will have to help you out with the smarter than you part, but I can help out on the picture!

    This is a 3 Phase Operation; Phase 1 is LRH Forum Browser Setup, Phase 2 is Image Acquisition, and Phase 3 is Image Posting

    LRH Forum Browser Setup
    1. Log in to LRH
    2. Scroll/Look to the upper right of your screen and click on "Private Messages"
    3. Look to the center left of your screen and click on "Edit Options". It's under the "Settings and Options" dark brown block.
    4. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the "Miscellaneous Options" block.
    5. Select "Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWG Interface" from the drop down box.
    6. Click on the "Save Changes" button just left and below the drop down box.

    Phase II-Image Acquisition
    This forum (as most) will not allow you to directly upload images from your computer to a posting. Instead it requires that it be posted elsewhere on the World Wide Web. Your post of your "picture" will actually be a link or "URL" of the picture as it's hosted by another website/server elsewhere on the web. Len's magic forum translates that link into an image.

    The bad part #1...you'll need to register an account with either a pay service like smugmug or a free service like photobucket. After registration, you'll be able to upload your images, which will enable you to get a link or "URL" for them.

    The bad part #2...Due to the varied processing of uploading pictures, this post won't be able to help you in that regard....so no step by step for that process. Just follow the guidance contained for the photo hosting service you sign up for to upload the pictures.

    The good part..there are already a jazillion images on the web with URLs/links, so if there's a picture you see on the web you want to post , it's already "hosted" there for the posting.

    Phase III-Image Posting
    1. Open another internet browser window than your LRH window screen and browse to the image on the web you want to post.
    2a. If using Firefox as a browser-Right click on the image, and left click on "Copy Image Location".
    2b. If using Internet Explorer as a browser-Right click on the image, and left click on "Properties". Then using your left mouse button, highlight the URL/link and right click on the highlighted text, and left click on "Copy".
    3. Now go back to your LRH window.
    4. Start your new post, thread, quote as necessary.
    5. Once your new post window screen is displayed click on the button at the top of editor box. It will ask you for a URL/link.
    6. Right click inside the text box, and left click on "Paste".
    7. Click on the "Preview Post" bottom to the bottom right of the post text editor box you just posted the picture in to see what your picture looks like in your post.
    8. Edit as necessary.
    9. You just went from a picture posting zero to a picture posting hero!

    There's a more comprehensive discussion on picture posting at the thread below.

    Good luck!
