I sufferered a major financial setback this last week. I stopped at G-A Precision in Kansas City, MO for a look around and now have a new rifle in progress. I watched George Gardener shoot his 338 Lapua last year and thought I'd like to try another one. Well, the KC trip locked that in. I'll use a CZ 550 Safari action with a cartridge length capacity of 3.90 inches, enough to hold the standard 416 Rigby cartridges and a long loaded 338 Lapua. The barrel will be a 34" Mike Rock 1 x 10 cut rifled barrel with a heavy taper. The magazine will hold 3 or perhaps 4 rounds depending on the stock I use, I'm leaning toward the "Baker" stock from McMillan. There are no tactical type rings for this setup but George had a modified set of CZ rings that are pretty beefy and I'll have him use the same setup on the two he builds, one for me and one for my shooting partner. I may need to put my 338 RUM on the back shelf of my safe.
