Montour,
I am curious, have you ever built on the Stiller TAC338 Action? I'm interested in a having a 338-378 WBY built.
Now the rest of the challenges, I am left handed, I want a sendero style synthetic stock, a clip fed magazine (will settle for a conventional magazine), and a 30" match grade fluted barrel with a muzzle break.
Should I just shut up and quit dreaming? ;)

    I would have to say that there is no "BEST" extractor set up I like
    any extractor that works and is properly installed.

    I always hear of the problems that people have with extraction and
    it is allways because something else was wrong,some common causes
    are ,loads are to hot,poorly installed,wrong bolt face dia.for the round.(
    Normaly to large allowing the round to slip out from under the extractor),
    Dirty chamber and a dirty or brassed up bolt face, ETC.

    As far as a Remingtion extractor being problematic I have never had or
    known anyone that has had a problem with one that was taken care of
    but I have herd of sako type extractors popping out of the bolt but they
    were improperly installed.

    One reason smiths dont install Remingtion extractors is the special tooling
    required to cut the excentric grove in the bolt face.

    The sako and M 16 type are easy to install so that is the norm if you have to
    open the bolt face up.

    I prefer push feed over controled feed because I can single load without
    pushing the round down in the magazine taking a chance of damaging
    it plus it takes longer than just laying it in the receiver and closing the bolt.

    As far as custom actions .They are great looking and are (Normaly) near perfict
    But as a picky gun smith I will check every action for trueness before installing
    it on a barrel and doing what ever is nessary to make it true no mater who makes
    it.

    With that said it all boils down to what you want/like and are willing to pay for.

    If your starting from scrach and do not have donor rifle then start with a custom
    action if you can afford it ,but any action can be made to shoot accurately with
    a quality barrel (The single most important thing when building a accurate rifle).

    Just my opinion

    Chopaka81,
    Yes, I have built some over the years on Stiller actions. I have a Tac338 single shot on order right now for a customer building a .300 Lapua. The Tac338 is the action you want to use for your .338-.378 Weatherby project. Left handed,? not a problem, Stiller makes that action in left bolt left port, problem solved. The Tac338 is .05" larger in diameter than a Remington and .465" longer, it also has a .750" diamter bolt and a M16 style extractor. It's a little bit of a tighter squeeze but you can fit the Tac338 in a Sendero style stock. Stillers offers a bedding system that uses Accuracy International magazines. I haven't used this feature yet but you can contact Stillers and I'm sure they can tell you more information about it. The 30" fluted barrel with a brake again are no problem. I also sent you a pm.
