    I am in the process of researching the purchase of one of the following:
    .338 Lapua Mag DAkota Longbow
    .338 Lapua Mag HS Prescision Heavy Tactical
    and a 7mm rem mag in Robar SR 60 conversion

    Can anyone lend any practical imput and suggestions with these platforms. Quality of the HS Precision as it is about 1500 less than the DAkota. Any imput would be appreciated.

    I've personally had 2 338 Lapuas, one custom built on a TRG-s action the other from H-S Precision.

    I won't buy another from H-S Precision.

    I'd go for the LongBow.

    check out http://www.prairiegunworks.com They have some great looking actions and rifles, especially look at the T-Wolf rifle/action and LRT-2/action.

    Dave,
    I'm in the process of buying an HS Precision rifle. Your specific experience with HS Precision rifles (or anyones) would be helpful to me at this decision point. Thanks for any help or advice. Sincerely, Tommy [​IMG]
