338 rifle; $3500 budget, suggestions?

Post by drgrenthum » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:07 pm

Been fascinated with the 338 lapua and like the fact I can reload it on my press, unlike the 50bmg I just sold. Starting a preliminary search for a long range rifle and hoping you guys can give me some more options. I'm budget limited to $3500, I already have a decent scope and rings.

What will I do with it? Probably just punch paper, but perhaps hunting. I'm not weight sensitive, took the 50 on a hog hunt, besides it constantly getting stuck on branches during the hike, I didn't mind the weight.

The two contenders I'm looking at are the savage 110ba. and a masterpiece arms http://masterpiecearms.com/shop/mpa-338 ... ion-rifle/

I'm sure there must be more good options in my price range. Hoping to have it by July or August, so someplace without a year wait would be nice.

Thank you in advance.

If you see another grab it... I have owned the TRG in .308 and it was outstanding.

The one in the bst would have been perfect. I have read great things about the trg. Price wise it seems just out of reach, new. I'll have to think about the used route.
