    I am looking at having a SR-60 338 lapua mag built built by Robar, based on a Dakota Arms action. My other option is to have McBos 338 tactical built. Any thoughts on either, and what about barrel length and twist rate? I am looking for optimum barrel length in a tactical type package. Any thoughts?

    I am going to use a 30 inch tube with a 1 in 10 twist rate when I build mine.

    Robar does a fantastic job. Attention to detail is their most valuable asset! They add a lot of little things you don't really notice until you handle a rifle made by someone else. However McMillan has a great reputation too.

    Is there any price difference between the two?
