Re: Action for .338 Lapua
Dan Lilja, Dave Tooley, Jim Borden and others say NOT to use the Rem 700. However... I have a friend that has shot several hundred rounds in one that has been a .338 Lapua Imp., has a 30" X 1.45 dia. barrel, Heavy 1000 yard bench gun. He also puts the bolt in another action with another barrel and fireforms his .338-416 Rigby Imp. brass for his Weatherby MkV hunting rifle. He fired the "fireform" barrel one time w/o the brake, by accident. It weighs about 7#, big ouch! I will use a Geske action or a Sako TRG-S for the big cases. The 700 works but I choose not to go there.
