Custom M700 338 Lapua Mag

I had this rifle built over the winter and with 50 rounds through it so far, it has shown solid 1/2 MOA capabilites during break-in, and hints of room for improvement.

M700P MLR Action - trued, sqared, lapped, etc.
28.5" PacNor 1-10" twist with Holland QD brake
Single feeding (for now) with BDL bottom metal and Sinclair follower - want Seekins DBM!
McMillan A-5
TPS 20 MOA 1pc base plus rings
NF NXS 5.5-22x50

    Very nice rig.
    I think you will like the Seekins DMB which allows a longer COAL of 3.90 I think.
    What length are you loading now , and who built the rifle for you ?

    I like it a lot. Who did the work? How far out have you shot it?

    Thanks. First two range trips with it for break-in and some preliminary load testing have me excited about it's potential. I have only shot it out to 300 m to-date, but the several 1/2 MOA 5-shots groups look promising. The 300 SMK's seated .02" from the lands have a COL of 3.774. I would like to feed these from a detach mag. The gunsmith is a low profile BR 'smith (DRS) here on the Canadian west coast.
