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.

Re: MCR's 338-378

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
