The long action mag assy was designed around the Lapua initially not a problem there. I already talked to Glen about a 338 AM mag system he said no problem. I just can't figure what action to use and still make Idaho weight.
I have the perfect receiver for that, just have to find someone that will make the damn thing for us. It would be a 1.470" diameter and no heavier then the BAT 8.5x1.55 Model M. Lets just say a Raptor scaled up a bit. All it needs is the longer mag window and a bit larger OD for the larger thread diameter needed for the 408. The bolt head was designed for this purpose all along, at least as stout as the BAT if not moreso.
Still, good ideas on paper are one thing, trying to get production results are quite another. I am working on it however. If it happens I think we would have the ultimate receiver for what we are looking to do with these rifles and keeping weight down.
Time will tell.
