Re: Strongest 338 Lapua Action
Possibly the strongest long action is the Surgeon XL action. It is a beefed up 700 style action but with two big advantages. It has a integrated 30 MOA 1913 mil spec base and integrated .450" recoil lug. That just means the action is considerably stiffer and stronger than the 700. The extra .450" in the barrel tenon greatly adds to barrel stiffness. The down side is $1685 for the repeater and $1350 for the single shot.
