A Good Jumping Point
I am finally looking into having a rifle built for the soul purpose of hunting big game long range. I don't know exactly what components I want to use yet, but I would like to use a 3 lug action and I am leaning towards .330 Dakota. I would also like to keep the rifle as light as possible for hiking and the occasional offhand shot at close range.
I emailed Bat machine asking if their 3L action would handle the .330, they said it would but would not accept a magazine. Does anyone have any recommendations for a 3 lug action that does handle a mag, or would a single shot be fine? All my varmint rifles are mag fed, but I am use to shooting a single shot in competition, so I am undecided on this.
I'm at the earliest phase of trying to decide what I want, so any input on an action, barrel, or anything else would be much appreciated.
