If i wanted .338 lapua what caliber bolt would i have to change face on.
338 Lapua needs a .585 bolt face.
So what bolt would i need to put the face on?
Do it once do it right!
The beauty of these is that if you dont want that specific boltface any
more just order a whole new bolt with different bolt face.
Mate of mine has the P action and shoots 223,6 BR, 6.5x47,300 WSM and 338 Edge!1 fireing pin assembly, 3 Bolts, one action, barrel vice tourque wrench and bolt wrench about 5 min change time.
take note of changes of POI from one to another, with 1st class gear they go straight back in same place everytime.
It would pay you to start with a custom action,stiller,lawton,bat etc all of these brands have an action designed to suit the 338 lap, it's not worth stuffing around with a factory action there are a few mods involved you will have to open up the bolt face have a new extractor put in, open the feed rails on the action and thats before having it trued so it isn't much cheaper than a custom action which is beefed up to handle the 338 lap power.just my 2 cents i have been there and done it though!
Thinks the reply you posted made lots of since thinks.
