    There are a couple good choices of actions for the Chey-Tac size cartridge. I prefer the 338-408 over the 375-408 simply because of bullet selection. I have a 338-408 and am more than happy with it's performance. My list of actions in order of preference.

    Stiller TAC408
    BAT model M or L
    Barnard P-Chey
    Lawton 8000 or 8500

    Kevin,

    I am having 338 AM being built right now by Kirby on a BAT action. Just curious why you said you prefer the Stiller action over the BAT??
