    SD- I don't have the 338 Lapua, however I have a pair of .340 Weatherby's that I would consider. One is a Mark V and the other is outfitted in a laminated stock.

    SD- here's a couple of pic's of the two of them. One is a Mark V with an after market accubrake added. The other is a Mark V action on a laminated thumbhole stock. I would consider trading one or the other. Preferably the laminated one.

    Why are you downsizing to a 338 Lapua?
    Is the 338-378 excessive recoil causing an accuracy issue?
    I had a 338-378 Accumark that with a proper skim bedding and pillar job alongside with a timney trigger job would produce 1/4" groups with 300 SMK's
    I found the standard muzzle brake to be a useless attachment and fitted an aftermarket 4 port muzzle brake which controlled the recoil very well.
    I achieved fantastic results pushing 300SMK's out at 2860 some 100+ fps faster than the Lap at around 2720-2760 and that was without using a double based powder like some people do to squeeze out extra speed at the expense of premature short barrel life..
    I later went and sold the Accumark after building a custom rifle in the same cartridge but with a 30" barrel comfortably achieving 1/4" groups at 2960 fps with Retumbo pushing the 300 SMK.
    Most people I gather seem to find the recoil of this cartridge to be somewhat daunting and are therefore intimidated by it and easily give up on the cartridge.
    Stick with it as it is a wonderful cartridge that will do everything the Lap can do and more without pushing the boundaries to excessive limits..
    I hope I haven't stirred up a hornet's nest with this but so what; it's the truth.
    Only my two dollars worth.

    Fair call
    hope everything works out well for you in going with the Lap.
    Brass in Australia for both cartridges is pretty much on par so it makes no difference as far as costs go; they are both expensive to shoot over here
    FYI; I neck anneal all of my cases after 2 shots and that applies to all 5 of my long range rifles and so far I have achieved 14 reloads with my Norma / Weatherby 338-378 cases, and they still feel reasonably tight as far as primer pockets are concerned.

    Cheers
