Re: long heavy barrel picture request

nice lapua. Mine was fun to shoot but I sold it for another project and I missed it later but I thought 26" sporter barrel was just the wrong combination on my lapua.
I still got my ammo. its not like you can give 338 lapua ammo to your buddy

    Swamplord,

    Thanks for the information on another source for barrels. What chassis is that on the pictured 375?

    And what exactly are the 338 Wolverine and 375 Mjolnir wildcats?

    so the barrel length of that rifle with break would be 32" ? . I plan on getting a lss chassis as I love the way it looks . its only currently offered in a short action but a long action is in the works . I could always go with a 300 wsm and 208 amaxs or 215gr vlds etc. seems like max loads gain more fps from 30" tube + than reduced loads . I guess its because the extra powder .

    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!

    I have a 338 Norma Mag from Mikes guns and service. Shoots one hole at a 100 yards. Love the NM. Shooting RL22 and a 300 gr SMK.
