    Here is a picture of my recently completed .338 Norma Mag. I have only been able to shoot it a handful of times, mainly breaking in the barrel. I can already tell that it is going to be very accurate.

    Rem 700 action, Spiral fluted bolt, also had to machine the bolt head out, Bartlien barrel 29", custom muzzle break, oversized bolt handle, NFS 5.5 -22 x 56.

    I know this is a poor quality photo, but I could not help myself in sharing it.
