Was thinking of a switch barrel build in the future. Would buy an extra bolt to allow changing from 338 Lapua to the magnum bolt face, to allow for switch up between barrels. Was wondering if the accuracy would be where it needs to be switching barrels?

Should be fine when torqued to same spec every time. A guy I know has become a switch barrel addict, says its great. Good to have gauges to double check depending on what method you use to swap.

If you were running a panda action you could do it super easy. Just have the barrel cut and spaced for the action the end. You could then use that barrel on any panda with no head space concern.
