I have enough lapua ammo left over to sell and by a single stage press

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

I been talking to Andy at Ad arms great guy .
He was asking me how I intend to shoot it etc I told him prone position mostly
for target hooting. he recommended a heavy palma for a lighter muzzle over a cylinder barrel so it will balance better on the bipod . I like pacnors heavy palma the best because it tapers once after the chamber to .925 and then its straight cylinder to the muzzle .925 see point b and c are the same PAC-NOR Barreling, Inc. - Barrel Contours

I had asked him about using a savage action but he says a big 338 really needs a large shank I got no problem with the 700. just I could have got a savage action for less money .

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

Thanks for those links I'm going to get started reading them.
Andy said I can get a 300 rum action and he can fit a ptg bolt to it for the conversion.
