Re: what action for 338 cheytac

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??
