I realize there are a few posts regarding a .338 Lapua build. I have read so many threads and have not found exactly what I am looking for. I am going to build a .338 Lapua, I plan on mainly shooting 300 grns. with the occasional 250 grn. @ 1500 yds. I am going to go with a custom action, I have been looking at McMillan, BAT Machine and Surgeon. Price point is not a big deal as they are all within a few bucks of each other. I am looking for some advice on which action for the the .338 Lapua. I know they all make an action will work for it, is there one that stands out and why? Barrel: I do want to be able to carry it, I realize it will be a heavy brute, what contour do ya'll use? I was thinking of the Krieger #17 heavy varmint 1.25 - .900. Brake, I am looking at the Elite Iron break. I want the ability to add a can on certain situations. Any recommendations? Or I can ditch the suppressor and just go with a full time brake. I am really temped by the Surgeon action. Why is it that we don't hear a lot about McMillan actions?
