Re: MCR's 338-378

I haven't heard how it shot yet. In my 338-378 I ran 106g Retumbo with a 300g SMK at just over 3100 fps. Now that was with a 36" barrel though and if the temp was over 80* I'd get into pressure.

    Thanks Kevin, I think that will be my next build after the new year.

    How did you get the Tac 338 in stainless and not oxidized.

    It is probably a Predator Extreme, which Stiller no longer makes. The only 338 Stiller currently makes is the Tac338.

    Stiller will blast the black finish off for $25. I asked them not to coat it but they said it was too much trouble to pull it out of the batch. Doesn't make much sense to me, but I wanted it SS finished.

    I got a Tac 338 on order from the group buy.And also would rather have it in stainless.Could you put some closer pictures up of the action.I would like to see it better.I am suppose to get it some time in January.So I will have to make my mined up and give them a call to get it done.I would really appreciate it and for all your help.I am building a 338 Norma AI and i have the same barrel you have. Love that barrel

    I just sent the rifle back to Kevin to change out the H S Detachable Magazine for a Wyatt long centerfeed box and BDL metal so I could seat the bullets out farther. The finish is just like a Predator action. You could probably get Stiller to blast it, or your builder. Kevin said he could have done mine, if I hadn't already ordered it that way
