    always thought the .338 was the magnum round by Lapua but just called lapua to seperate it from the others like norma etc ( which is a another magnum round )

    not familiar with any .338 non magnum rounds in current rifles 50's yes but .308 killed most of that until they made it a magnum

    The .338 edge is a good round too. I aint shot one, but it was one of the odd curiosities Stuart was buying into back in the old days at the shop. It all started for him with the .300 Tejas. then it was the .338 edge, and then it was the .338 lapua, but he ultimately decided on the .338 SnipeTac.. That was around the time the shop closed (Last January) and I aint much seen him since. Im sure he had one built..

    I am getting anxious to get my hands on the Sako. Were gona meet up the end of the month. Hes gonna drive up my way for something and were gonna try to meet somewhere between here and Hico.

    I need it like I need a hole in the head.. But dang I WANT it. And the more I dig up on it the worse it gets.

    Whoa that is a giant action and barrel. It looks beautiful. Almost looks like a incredibly dark stained walnut or some exotic wood. but synthetic. Very streamlined and sleek looking.

    You know JLA I hate you for this deal right? I can never find deals like this. Hell I can get a person to trade a $300 gun for a $500 gun or a watch or anything for that mater. SIGH.

    This one actually found me. And I almost passed on it. But I was intrigued enough to think on it, and then started researching..

    NICE Josh! The .338 has been "flopin'" around in my mind, nonetheless the magnum.
    Have you had a chance to try'er out yet?
