Do it once do it right!

The beauty of these is that if you dont want that specific boltface any
more just order a whole new bolt with different bolt face.
Mate of mine has the P action and shoots 223,6 BR, 6.5x47,300 WSM and 338 Edge!1 fireing pin assembly, 3 Bolts, one action, barrel vice tourque wrench and bolt wrench about 5 min change time.

take note of changes of POI from one to another, with 1st class gear they go straight back in same place everytime.

Re: .338 lapua

It would pay you to start with a custom action,stiller,lawton,bat etc all of these brands have an action designed to suit the 338 lap, it's not worth stuffing around with a factory action there are a few mods involved you will have to open up the bolt face have a new extractor put in, open the feed rails on the action and thats before having it trued so it isn't much cheaper than a custom action which is beefed up to handle the 338 lap power.just my 2 cents i have been there and done it though!
