Re: Update on my .338 RUM Project
I have no personal experience, but the word over at snipers hide, where they are quite familiar with the AICS platform, is that neither the 300WM nor the 338 Laupa magazines will feed the 338 RUM properly. Anyone with differing first hand experience feel free to contradict.
As for the contour, I always end up carrying my rifles farther than I expect. At this point, I would personally be inclined to go with your buddy's recomendation, especially because a #5 isn't exactly thin either.
I can't speak for everyone, but as for me, I really like seeing detailed builds and updates on the board. Just don't forget the pics!
Empirical results rule!
