Some feel that the Remmy can't handle it, I really don't understand why, since like you have mentioned Remmy themselves built the SR-8. It was never put into production because of lack of interest and production costs. HS Precision-considered to be a "custom" action is **** near an exact Remmy copy in looks and dimensions and they build a bunch of Lapuas, as do I.
My wife shoots a 338 Lapua on a Remmy.
I just noticed that we have this rifle on our national cataloge, and wanted to learn a little about it.
I could find very little on the web, does anyone know anything about this rifle?
the only site that had comments said it was only a prototype, but since it's on our catalog it must have been produced.
At the very least it might mean that if it is based on a 700 action I can build one as long as I maintain the original specs.
This project was commissioned for the Italian Army, and it seems that the rifle never went into production. Now need to find out if one can be built by a smith here...
