    Need suggestions. Thinking of a new build for an Elk rifle. I do not want to form brass, so was thinking of a .338 Lapua.
    Want a light rifle for carry in the 8 1/2 to 9 lb. range without scope.
    McMillan HTG stock
    26-28" barrel plus brake. The carbon wrap barrels might be needed to get the weight down.

    Don't know which action to use.

    Looking for any suggestions.

    This is just the start of a new dream, still waiting on the first custom from Kirby as we speak.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Here's mine R-700 action ABS 30" +brake 11.6 pounds including 5.5X22X50 NXS scope and steel rings and bases. A Palma contour barrel with flute will be nearly identical in wieght to the ABS Carbon wrapped barrel

    If you decide on the 338 Lapua, I have some Neil Jones custom product dies that you may want to pick up.
