Re: New (kinda) from K.C.
G.A. Precision (George Gardner's shop) REALLY knows how to build a good gun - it shoots like a dream! It will regularly cloverleaf three and four-shot Lapua factory ammo groups @ 100m. Hitting milk jugs at anything closer than 800m borders on boring. I just shoot factory loads right now because (like everyone else who owns a 338 anything) I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of Berger's 300gr pills.
With the scope it tips the scales at 19 lbs. That makes packing it around a bit of a hassle, but recoil is a gentle roll back into your shoulder. Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend George, great guy, very knowledgeable. From what I've read though, there are a few really good smith's on this site too, and guys that can really squeeze every last drop of accuracy out of their already stellar machines.
