Re: Faulty barrels on 338Lapua Rem 700P
Hi weve one here in the workshop this is what we are doing to it.
Re barrel with 26" Lawton barrel SSG V port break,
fully true action lapp lugs fit a pinned lawton lug.
bed the action into the factory stock.
Fit a Defensive Edge cheek piece.
Fit a Tac Ops bolt knob.
Make and fit a custom 20moa tapered base.
Supply and fit a Seekins 5 shot 3.9" detachable mag system.
Then re paint it all black.
I would recommend getting a seccond hand mag action or a mag sps then buils a 338 Edge and choose the stock you actualy want and the rifle will be heaps cheeper than a 338 Lapua Sako or the Rem Police made how it should have been from the factory.
The ultramag case is a better fit in the rem action any how.
Just a piece of info the actions used for the 338 Lapua are significantly harder than other rem chrome molly and stainless actions I know this from machining them for extended mag systems and pinning recoil lugs. so Remington must think other actions are not hard or strong enough fir a safe margin off reloader error with the big Lapua case.
