For a brake, I would give Kirby Allen a shout out or call. He makes some awesome brakes. You can contact him on this board. He is very professional and builds awesome rifles. If you don't have a smith yet, I would seriosly consider him for the build.
For rings and bases, I would use Nightforce base and rings. However, Badger rings and bases and Leupold rings and bases are excellent too. You can't go wrong either way.
Let me tell you that when I was developing the loads using 250mk's for my 338 Lapuas IMR 7828 worked the best. May not in your rifle but give it a try. My 338 Lapua Improved rifles like the H1000 the best but I use the 300 smk for those.
The Truth Is Not Always Good For Business!!
Your smith is competant, only hear good things about him....but you know who I think the best gun builder around our area is. He has a reamer....I know cause he taught me how to chamber while he was using it to build rbelote's gun. It is too bad that he is quitting building for the general public.

I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
Oh he has a 338 Lapua reamer does he? hhmmm. very intersting
banded , is that list of products things that you already had or is that whats on order I ask simply cause I'm not a big fan of Shilen barrels As for your brake , I personaly use Nathan Dagleys
V-port brake , its a baffel style that works very well , I like it cause it just looks differant. eddybo can testify to its ability to reduce recoil.
other than that it looks like your gonna have a sweet setup. What aprt of MS are you in?
