    Have ordered a Stiller 338TAC action for a 338 impLapua build. Jerry was mentioning that an easy way to go on the magazine box, is to use the 378 Weatherby magazine box/bottom metal. Does anyone know how far out I could seat using this magazine box? My other thoughts were to use the HS precision DM which would allow an OAL of 3.670, or the Wyatts DM system. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    From Seekins DMS taking orders - Sniper's Hide Forums:
    Too late for the special intro price now, I believe, but you can still order one at regular price :)

    Hope that helps.

    Dave Kiff at Pacific Tool and Guage just announced he has them for sale now too.

    you can go to 6mbr.com and they have a blog on the Shot show where they interviewed him and he shows it.
