BTW If you wanna go .338 look at the .338 NM just as fast as the Lupy but can be loaded in standard mags with the 300 gr pills. That is if you are doing a custom action. Or do what I did and go .338 Edge.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

can the 338 norma be used in rem 700 action ? the action was already setup in 300 rum so the feed rail should work with that case right ? just get a pgt bolt for a lapua blt face ?

I have a Rem 700 in 338 Norma Mag, just like you said I got a PTG bolt w/Lapua bolt face.
Haven't got it feeding from the mag yet but will try using a HS Precision detachable mag set up and modified 300 Win mag, hope it works out.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

im pretty set on the 375 rum been wanting a 375 cal for sometime but not as big as the cheytac. want to keep rem 700 action for all the aftermarket goodies. I want to get a few different stocks. looking at the wyatt cfe9 box mag to I think I could get those 300gr ceb vlds to feed in it . jbm show that bullet at 3000 fps with 2000 ft lbs of energy at 1k.
