Who chambers a 338 Lapua besides Sako and Armalite?

I just want to know my options before I buy my long range rig. If those are the only two I will probably have a custon built 338 edge or Lapua. I just dont like the super tactical look of both of those. I would be happy with something like an HS Prescision tactical stock as I will be using it for hunting and packing it around.

HS Precision makes a factory Lapua, so does Dakota. GA Precision built mine on a Nesika action, if you don't want to use a Remington. Mike

try Jim Ruiz at Predator Custom. He makes a 338 Paladin. I shot one for an article recently and had no trouble with 1.5 to 2 inch groups at 500 yards with HS Ammo. NF 42X He has a 1000 yard gun. I have the pictures of 4" groups. The guy can build a gun.

Remington listed this caliber for the M24A3 Sniper Weapons System (SWS), but that was for 2006. Not sure if it's available to the civilian population. I found it under http://www.remingtonmilitary.com/m24...m......JohnnyK.
