I greatly appreciated all the input and opinions from you guys on the 30-378 idea. After careful consideration i have decided to build a rifle. I called up my buddy Russell Banks the owner of scout supply company and the builder of my two previous custom rifles and discussed it with him and we decided to start a project. I have begun sourcing parts and we are getting under way. The build will consist of a stiller tac 338, a manners t5 100percent carbon fiber non adjustable to keep the weight down. Jewel trigger the barrel is yet to be determined. Bug holes has a bartlein 1/9.3 sendero 31" .875 at 26" I plan to go 28" on the barrel. I really would like to get another broughton 5c. I have had those on both my other builds. Anyway sendero or a heavy palma gratuitously fluted to further cut down on weight. Seekins 3.900 DBM if I can find one. Chambering will be 338 lapua or a lapua improved not sure on that one yet. I like the improved but I will have to get special dies and there is a lack of load data readily available but I still might. So anyway there it is. Hopefully she will make her debut at the 2014 lrh group hunt in Wyoming in October. Thanks again guys and I will keep you all posted on how it turns out and if there are changes as well as how it shoots.
