It has been a long wait but I finally got the Remington 700P .338 Lapua after waiting about 20 months. I had given up. It has a muzzle brake
and is as previously posted on this post by a member. I have not yet set it up with a scope as I am not sure my Bausch&Lomb (now Bushnell Elite) 4200 6-24 X 40 target scope will be able to stand up to the recoil although it has a muzzle brake. I prefer to check before ruining it. Any suggestions would be welcome. The Schmidt Bender 8-25 x 50 and Leupold Mark 4 are suitable but quite expensive. Nightforce should have a few suitable scopes for hunting elk long range. Naturally, I would use a lower powered 250 gr or less shell for hunting.
I hope you were able to get one. Some people have complained about bore roughness and poor machining on the Internet but I have yet to check this on mine with a quality borescope.
The price was around $1000 US.
