Re: Model 70 strong enough for a 338 Lapua?
I know it has been done many times but its my professional opinion that it should NEVER be done. The reasons are very clear.
The extractor side bolt is very small compared to the other and the barrel shank is not large enough for a Lapua class chambering that has the potential to be loaded to 70,000 psi.
IF you want Lapua class power in an M70, go with the Edge, not the Lapua.
