Sweet deal! I hear nothing but good things about Lawtons actions, What is your impression? I ask just cause my 338 LM is going to on a 8500 repeater action.

Re: SSG 338 Lapua Ackley Improved

Your rifle looks great and obviously shoots as well.
Would you mind responding to some questions, as I am trying to decide on caliber and rifle....although I'm leaning towards a .338LAI:
Specs such as lenght of barrel (excl. lenght of brake), make and # barrel, twist, weight of gun (it looks like a MacMillan 5 stock).
Also, I am looking at either a USO scope or IOR. Your's looks like Valdada's IOR (3-18x50?)?
Any info would be helpful. I am trying also to decide what features I'd like on the gun. What bolt handle did you choose?

Very curious,
terjeness
