Sako TRG 42 .338LM - Max size barrel?

I'm looking at getting a new .338LM barrel for my Sako. However what would be the longest/heaviest profile (i.e. max weight) barrel this action could support without extra stress or the need for a barrel block? Guessing around a 34" no. 8 heavy profile or is that too much?

All thoughts greatly appreciated. Tiff
