myrifleisLapua and joe0121:
The shop that Jimmie Sloan camped out at to develop the 338 NM is Mike's Gun Sales and Service
. They build tube guns especially
in 300 NM and 338 NM.
Accurate Mag also has a 338 NM tube gun (Special Service Rifle
). Plus RW Snyder
. Plus Tooey
. Plus Vestal
If you'd consider a semi, there's Noreen's Bad News
. Maybe even F&D
Where might someone find out about such things? Here
- look for the light green "2" at the end of the entries. Or orangish "1" for 338 NM. Sorry , no differentiation "code" for "tube gun" vs "conventional"... but the bright green background for the model indicates repeater (mag fed).
If you are actually dealing with a "gunsmith", many 338 LM merchant offerings can be tuned for 338 NM feeding. Loving the extra .100 ish length in the 338 LM CIP mags for the longer projectiles. I have a 338 NM build in work which is going into an XLR chassis - pure tube gun and EXCELLENT workmanship!
Enjoy and God Bless!
