buy a sako TRG-S in a .338 - you can find them on gunbroker, etc.

 

that is the m995 action - it is the SAME action that the TRG-22's and 44's are built on.

you will be hard pressed to find a better action.  You don't see as many of these as you used to.

i would hop on one if you find one you can afford. (600-1200 bucks) is what i have seen them for.

 

my m995 is the most accurate gun i have ever had. 

 

good luck and let us know what you find.

http://www.surgeonrifles.com/ their XL action is designed for 338 Lapua.

I f  I was going to build a .338 I would talk to George at GAPrecision.

I really considered .338L  but opted for a 300 Win Mag. The .338 burns up barrels rather quickly. The brass is extremely high priced and the loaded ammo is outrageously priced. The 50BMG is more popular and ammo easier to find but the rifle is too heavy, so for a portable long range gun I went 300 Win Mag.
