    Hello im looking for an action that will fit the 338-378 wby caliber. Seeing as it is a real pain in the azz to bring this kind of stuff across the border, hopefully i can find a Canadian seller. Or if you could list what are my options for this caliber in other actions other than the weatherby mkV or sako TRG-S. If i have to i can go through Prophet river outfitters to get it in from the US. What are my options?

    Hey, if can't find a 338/378 you can use a 257 270 7mm 300 or 340 and open up the bolt face, get a .460 extractor 460 mag box and follower from weatherby. Note if you use a 257 270 or 7mm you will have to lengthen the bolt stop slot. Ihave done 10 or so actions that way, and have worked great . Sherman
