    Pretty generic question, but I'll play along. Start with a Surgeon XL and go from there.

    Are you positive you want a 338? I wouldn't do that unless you have plenty of time behind something smaller like a 308. I only say this because it's your first post, and that often means the poster doesn't have that much time behind a rifle.

    GA Precision -

    That said have you shot before? If not, a 338L would not be the gun I started with.

    Greg Young @ Southern Precision Rifles. Just got a my build back from him and it shoots bugholes, which happens to be the name of his website www.bugholes.com I'm going to do a full review in the next week or so.
