If you still prefer the Lapua, I'd skip the Remington and Savage and find a custom action that is built specifically to handle the Lapua.
Check out the Stiller tac338/Predator Extreme, Lawton 7000/8500, Defiance Machine.
The 338 RUM has a slight advantage over the Lapua in powder capacity and velocity at the
same pressures and the Edge has the advantage over the 338 RUM for the same reason
(More powder capacity).
The Lapua "Needs a larger dia. bolt" to leave more room for the extractor and this normally
requires the use of a mark 5 Weatherby or a custom action which is more expensive to build
There is no doubt that the Lapua brass is some of the best brass available and will stand
higher load pressures if you are into that.
So with that said the choice is yours .
