Hello all, well I really miss my 338 Yogi. It was a beautiful rifle. I had to sell her because I fell on some hard times. However, I am cuurently building up my collection again. I am currenlty having a 6BR built and a 300 WSM Varminter too.

However, my super long range rifle will be built be none other than Dave Tooley. I think I am going to build a 30/338 Yogi. I would like a 338/408 Cheytec based chamber, however, I am not sure if Dave has started designing anything around the 408 case.

I know Clay Spencer has a 338/408 Cheytec Improved reamer. However, I want Dave to build this rifle. I will e-mail him today and find out if he is designing anything based off the 408 Cheytec. Maybe you guys know if he is, if he is, please let me know.

Anyone thinking about building a top notch Super accurate long range rifle, should look no further than Dave Tooley.

Dave is one of the top Gunsmiths in the United States. He has proven that he is capable of building Championship rifles year in and year out.

Dave and I are good friends. We talk often and I've never heard him talk about developing any 408 based widlcats at all. I could be wrong, just never heard him talk about them or seem anything around the shop.

Nothing wrong with a 300 Yogi either. That is a lot of horsepower and Scott Fletcher is having good success with it in competition the last couple of years. Tom Sarver has had success in the past with it also.

You can't go wrong with Dave's work. The records his rifles have set and the number of championships they have won speak for themselves.

Steve, thanks for the info. I e-mailed Dave, and he e-mailed my back with some good info. He informed me he is not building anything off the 408 case.

I am going to have Dave build my 300 Yogi. I have two projects going right know, so once those are done, I will send Dave a deposite. I have had three rifles built buy Dave, he is an excellent smith. His work is top notch.
