I have considered the .338 Lapua round for the range but more importantly and THE principle reason of effectiveness, as my caliber of choice for a new rifle platform. Bolt action w/ optics to match. Buy cheap, get cheap... Would be interested in hearing the pros/cons of this. Thank you.

Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?

Looking forward to get a hunting rifle based on a customized 700 BDL action LH in 7mm RM. Latest in autumn 2013. Will be build up in Norway. 26' fluted ss barrel from Lilja or Walther (#5) in a classic High - Tech stock with latest bedding technology. Winchester 3p safety and Jewell trigger (adjusted to 800g). Recknagel picatinny rail and a Swarovski Z6 Illuminated 2. generation. That's going to be a shooting machine!

Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?

You guys have got me all fired up on long range shooting. I've got a Kimber 8400 mag in .300 mag. 26" barrel with 2.5 lb trigger. The action is long but the magazine well was short for factory OAL. I took the block out of the back of the mag well. The mag can now hold rounds that are @ .150 longer. I can now have the option of bullets seated out to the lands. I purchased a Leupold LR 4x14x40mm with side focus ( parallax ) I need the scope to fit in a scabbard. My hopes that I can make this a good 600+ yard saddle gun. I horse pack a lot and hunt on foot and horses mostly . I have to keep the all over size and weight down to fit in a scabbard. I just wanted to share this with you guys. Hope I'm on the right track with the Kimber rifle. I feel the .300 mag is an ideal cartridge for most everything I shoot at.
