Would a stevens 200 action hold up/ be a good start for a 338 lapua build?
A Stevens action is a Savage action. Yes it will.
Where are you going to get a bolthead for the 338 Lapua? Why not a 338 Edge?
The Edge will work without taking the action to the limits.
I actually can't decide between the 338 lapua and the 338 edge.... I have a 300 win for regular hunting i want something for long distance paper punching
The Edge will be much easier. All you have to do is spin the barrel on an action with a regular magnum bolthead.
You'd have to find a machinist or gunsmith to make you a bolthead for a Stevens that will fit the Lapua.
What he said. Sorry I was thinking 338 RUM. I know it says Lapua, but....
Thanks guys...sounds like the edge would be a more economical build. Is there any body that makes a prefit edge barrel?
Shilen and Pac Nor. McGowan will if you pay a reamer rental. Sin Arms did both of mine. Probably others.
