Got all the parts for the .338 Lapua..

Just received my Stiller action. It's a Preditor Extreme single shot for the .338 Lapua mag.

I was just waiting for the action as I already have the Bartlein 20 inch barrel(1:12 twist for 225 and 250 grain bullets), and Patriot Arms FB brake, and Jewell trigger, and a McRee aluminum stock. I also purchased, from Stiller, one of their scope bases with 20 MOA offset.

Sooo now all I need is to send it out and have it chambered, and the brake installed. I hope it doesn't take too long as I would like to use it this year out in Colorado for Elk. I'm going to call American Precision Arms (formaly Patriot Arms) to see if they will do the work, and what the lead time will be.

Can't wait for it to get done. I bought a used US Optics SN3 T-Pal 3.2-17 ffp for it.

If you live in Harrisburg, why not support one of the site smiths?? Kevin Cram (Montour County Rifles) is just north of you in Danville. I'm sure he'd be happy to work with you.

Yea I know I should take a before photo of just all the parts. I'll try to do that and post it.

Tom, the .338 Miceli isn't going anywhere!!! I'll be taking it with me to Colorado as well, just wanted the Lapua to give me more range. Out to 300 the .338 Miceli works great and is very portable too.


jmason, thanks for the info on Kevin Cram. How do the rifle (s) shoot that he has built for you? What calibers did you choose? Did he build you a .338 Lapua? How's it shoot?

Always good to find new talented gunsmith's that others have used.
Thanks again

Re: Got all the parts for the .338 Lapua..

Kevin has done some work for me on a 270 I have and it shoots great IMO. I have him building a 7MM wsm now and I'm sure it will shoot well too. There are a lot of guys on here that have had him build guns. I don't see how building a .338 Lapua poses any "special" issues. I know he has and shoots a 338-378 and I may be mistaken but I believe he's killed deer in excess of 1500 yds with it, and a ground hog in excess of 2000 yds with it. It's not a Lapua but it's in the same class of .338 cannons.

Did you think I was just pushing you towards someone with out having knowledge of who they were?
