:) Well, I like to build a new rifle in 338 Lapua. So I need good advice about witch action, barrel ( twist rate, length Contour etc. ) stock, trigger and rings and base I should take.

I like the GRS longrange stock ( http://grsriflestocks.com/grodas/long-range ), jewell trigger,
Kriger barrel HV 1:10 twist rate,
Stiller or BAT action
Spuhr rings ( http://spuhr.com/Our%20models.html )
I have Zeiss 6-24x72 scope.

Regards
Icekra

I have not shot one yet, however the 338 Norma sounds pretty **** interesting! (There are several reviews on here) Balistically identical and uses a lot less powder. If that is something you would be interested in that would open up a whole bunch of action options for you.

Just a thought.

Why not a Sako TRG. I have a friend that shoots 1000 bench with custom, and he loves his trg,shoots one hole at 200.Another friend that shoots same has a 338 LAIMP on a Bat and it works great for him but it is 22-24 #'s

I have a Bat Action, manner's stock, jewel trigger with a 28" lilja barrel that is a #5 contour. I would use a #7 next time around, the 5 is too light in my opinion. the rifle is very accurate! I can post a photo, if you like?
