Seekins makes a DBM that allow 3.9" OAL (It's what I'm using in my edge) The .375 350GR SMK may be a better choice if you go with seekins DMB. You'll need to have the smith throat the chamber for the SMK's for best results. Still I dont know of many people having a lot of success with the 375 RUM for ELR. How fast do you plan on launching those 300 Grainers?

AD Arms has built a few. He is out of North Dakota.

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.
Let me know if you find a mag that feeds reliably. I want to build a .338 NM rifle on a tube gun chassis.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

I contacted AD arms through facebook. If I go with the 338 norma I want to try the 280gr lrx. I seen some impressive hunts on here of with 338 magnums .
my favorite was of a elk that got hit at 800 yrds by a 300gr otm.
I have enough lapua ammo left over to sell and by a single stage press

I got ahold of pacnor they usually email me back soon
I thought I had a picture, but it doesn't seem like I do. I built the rifle 10 years ago, and traded it out a couple of years back.
