Re: Prairie Gunworks...........

Mindcrime -- my gunsmith has the 338-408 reamer and ability to make dies as well, and he is in PA, not canada...

    I am thinking purchasing one of the new CZ550 Safari Magnums chambered in .505 Gibbs to base mine on (I already have one in .416). I'm even thinking of double recoil lugging it---one on the barrel like a Remington, and the factory one on the bottom of the factory action. By bedding BOTH, it should be rock solid!

    About the reamer---Do you happen to know how long the throat is, what is the shoulder angle, and does it have minimum taper? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    BTW, I am wanting to build a "carry-able" version (27 inch barrel), not a 40+ benchrest rifle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    it is improved and 35degree i think -- call him, I just talked to him...

    not sure on throat.

    I wouldnt double lug it if you want it to shoot well, no reason to.

    It will pound the piss out of you in a carry package...though fitting and armalite ar-30 brake may help a bit.

    If you are wanting a carry rifle, i would go no further than the 338 Lapua personally...

    YMMV,
    JB

    A 35 degree shoulder sounds great! Even though I don't consider myself recoil shy (I shoot a load of 110gr. RL-22 pushing a 325 Barnes X from my Rigby from the PRONE position off a Harris bipod instead of off the bench [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]), I had already planned on a Holland Quick Discharge muzzle brake so that would help in the recoil department.

    Just friendly advice..Do not dump your money in PGW's venture. You'll end up toasted, like me.

    They will flat out keep your money.
