On auction arms I picked up a turkish m38 (mauser) action. It was cheap. Not exactly the premo action but it is functional. anyways the guy selling it is a smith out of Oklahoma. Talked to him and hes building me (tentitavly) 338wm, 20"bbl, timney trigger, aluminum hinged floorplate, cut and reweldbent bolt handle, action reworked, boyds laminate stock, with a duracoat finish. Also of course drilled and tapped for a scope. I'm planning on a no frills working man hunting rifle.
He said he uses pac-nor bbl's and thats fine with me as long as it can shoot 225-250gr bullets accurately. I'm sure it will come out OK, I got a 1.5X5 leupy waiting for a new home.
