Needing a practice platform that is close ergonomically to my A5 stocked 338AM, I built a Savage based practice rifle. I used a laminate A5 stock from Joel Russo and put a short action Savage 300WSM in it. I also have a 338-300RUM (Edge) barrel that is currently at Shawn Carlock's getting a brake installed.
So my light practice rifle is either a 300WSM with 26" barrel, or a 338-300 RUM with a 28" barrel.
Both the 338AM and the Savage have 3.5x15x50 NXS with the NP-R1 reticles. The scope sits a bit lower on the Savage and I get a really nice cheekweld against the stock, although I have the saddle adjustable cheekpiece that I will probably install and leave all the way down. On the 338AM, I need the adjustable cheekpiece to get the same line.
Here are pictures of both rifles.
First the 338AM (18lbs with bipod)
Then the practice rifle (this is with the 300WSM barrel on it). Around 12lb's
