How are the Lawton series of actions and barrels? Could the 8500 series handle the 338-408?

Tim,

My rifle was chambered by Baer, I did all the rest.
I can get you dies, brass, etc..
Here's a few pics.

I would be happy to come up and bring it along.

Give me a call and we'll figure something out.

Joel,
Is that a Mcmillan Adj A3-5 stock on that rig, and will it take a 1.55" O.D BAT action?

Jim,
That is the A-5 that we designed for Chey Tac to use the Lawton 8000 action.
It is proportionally correct for the larger action.

It is the same stock that Black Diamond 408 used on his .416 VM.
