    Just wondering if anyone has used the PAT for a magnum boltface build. I have a 338 Edge project in mind.

    Thanks.

    The Long Single Shot for a 338 Lapua Magnum would be the one I'd use for a 338 Edge project if your determined to use a Savage action.
    - The standard model 12 PTA is going to be on the short side for anything longer than a 280 A.I. or 30-06 length case.

    Yeah, but the PTA will eject an empty RUM case...and I have one. AFAIK, that Lapua action is only available in a complete rifle.

    Are the Savage actions for the .338 Lapua available?

    Is Savage still offering actions? Can’t find them on the website.

    The bolt face for the RUM case is the same as the 300Win Mag. See if Savage offers a 300 Win Mag in the PTA and buy an after market barrel chambered in 338 EDGE.
