Re: Opinions --300 WM vs. 338 LM
Well gang, I guess the 338 will have to wait. I could not find one wholesale, and the used ones were too much, so I bought a tan limited edition AR-30 in 300 WM. It has been shot 10 times (according to the previous owner) and is coming with the brake, harris bipod, and hard case. I can't wait till it gets here !! I e-mailed Armalite about the possibility of conversion to 338 LM, and the guy said no problem, send it in for a re-barrel and bolt head change. After I quizzed him about the price for such work, he replied back that he was sorry, but Armalite had apparently quit selling just the barrel. You now have to buy a barreled action "kit" at $865, but it is still do-able. I have sent an e-mail to a local BR gunsmith about re-barreling with an aftermarket tube, and changing bolt heads, but have not gotten a reply.
