    I have a 375-408 variant build in progress and some how my order from Stiller never got placed 5 months ago like it should have.:cool: Anyway since I have to wait is Stiller the best choice? Any left hand model yet? A couple actions I've been looking at are the Bat, Extreme Machining, And Stiller. Extreme says any action left hand but I will have to call to confirm. Any pros or cons from each?gun)

    Defiance actions are my preference but most any cheytac sized custom action will be dam nice.

    Don't think they do Cheytac sized? Are you by chance a Carr?

    They do Cheytac sized actions, I believe the renegade is what mine was built on, I'm not a Carr.

    Contact Joel Russo. I'm pretty sure he can point you in the right direction and I think he has a lefty cheytac source or will soon.

    Defiance does not make an action for the .408 based cartridges. The TAC 308 is a fair action at best, and the BAT, in any configuration to handle the .408 case, is the best action for the money. You can get it in the southpaw version. I do not have any experience with the Extreme Machining action.

    We will be introducing a new line of actions designed for the .408 cartridges shortly, and the left hand version will be on the plate.

    Do you have an estimate on "shortly"? And can I order one?

    I wish I could give a precise time frame. Realistically, we're a few months away from the Lapua and .408 actions. We are not taking orders yet. First ones to roll out of the machine are the long and short actions that share the Remmy footprint. We are finishing up the bottom metal that will also be available for all our actions.
    We feel your pain, that's why we took the bull by the horns. There are good actions on the market, but unfortunately, you have to wait a long, long time to take delivery. Our actions will match the quality of the top rated ones in every aspect of the word, and be available on a phone call.
    As we get closer to production, we will offer specific information on here and the website. Stay tuned:)

    Joel! Don't tell me things like that! I'm trying to talk myself OUT of a 375/408 & you're not helping.. :D


    Seriously though, thank you for looking out for the lefties. I'm really looking forward to seeing your product.

    :D After seeing what Kiwi Greg is doing with the 375 I'm drooling all over myself...

    I've looked at the 338AM several times.... I've always lusted after a true big bore...
    :cool:

    Correction mine was made off a smr 600 series action that I thought Defiance made but it's made in house by smr.

    Mi shoot a 375-408 variant (375 Allen Mag).

    It's on the big Bat M.

    Once you get that sucker to the top of mtn you pretty much own all you can see.:D

    A 350 SMK @ 3250 MV is a bit exhilarating.gun)

    MOA size rocks simply explode.:D

    I bought the action and barrel from a member here. He had a mind change.

    I still missed two seasons waiting for it.

    If some one is really drooling over one of these hammers, she's up for grabs. Not cheap, though.
