I dropped off my 700 LSS 338 RUM to my gunsmith today so he has it for my new project.
He has already ordered the barrel from Kreiger, they are running 18 weeks delivery ARO.
Here are the specs-
Kreiger #5 contour 27" 1-9.35 Twist chambered in 338 RUM
Twisted Barrel will be doing a straight 8 fluting
Williams Tactical Brake
Large Recoil Lug
Blueprint Action
HS Precision Sporter Stock
Image
Should be ready to go in June.

Sounds like a new bean field rifle in the making.

Roger,

Yes, it will definitely get duty time on the bean feilds keeping the deer herd in check. Also looking at doing another elk hunt and another moose hunt or two.
The rifle should weigh in about 1.5 lbs lighter than it currently is. The HS Precision stock weighs 2.0 lbs.
Even though I am going with a #5 contour, the larger bore, chamber and fluting will reduce the weight.

JD I have both those stocks only my H&S is tan and black and for my 338 Win, the factory Rem laminate is sitting in a corner with no rifle for it. Been looking to find something for it but nothing has flipped my switch yet. :>)

It was a great rifle before...

It should be an even better rifle now!

Excited about seeing your range reports and some great hunts as well!

Thanks Bill. Yes, Rob Canze is doing the work.
As you know, Rob does excellent work and knows how to make a shooter. He remembered your Lilja barrel, one of the finest he has ever seen, be he does a lot of work with Kreiger when you get over 30 Cal so I went with his recommendation.

I would take Robs advise as well, he certainly knows what he is doing.

Curious about your stock choice. Was cost the major factor or did you already have it?

Should be a real boomer.

Not JD but H&S makes a nice stock with a full bedding block to keep the boomer locked tight in the bedding. The one I have for my Ruger Hawkeye M77 338 Win made a big difference in how it shot and handled. Went from a 2" gun to a 3/4" gun just from bolting on the H&S stock.

HS Precision offers a very robust stock that is tough, durable and yet light weight. It will not twist or flex. It has a solid aluminum bedding block that when you bolt on the barreled action, it isn't going to move.

You’ll like the Krieger. I love them. Looks like it’s going to be a svelte crusher Jim.

Sounds like a great build, do you have any plans to change the trigger?
