    I think roedale precision in Germany does 338 lapua on them, but in NZ I wouldn't bother.

    Get a rem stainless or chromo for under a grand, then send to to someone to have it built.

    Let us know how you get on, I'm looking into building one again.

    Gunworks won't even build me a 338 lapua on a rem 700.

    Not surprised really.

    I won't build a Lapua or Norma mag boltface on a 700 either unless it has a M16 type extractor like a 700P or PTG etc aftermarket bolt.

    Its no big deal to put the m16 extractor, its just gunworks don't want to do it.

    Wether you get a magnum donor rifle or not, the bolt face still needs to be opened up anyway, so just buy a 270 or something.

    Most guys that open the Std or magnum face up to Lapua use a Sako extractor, not a m16 type that has a pin through it & is much less likely to come visit you if there is a major issue/catastrophic failure.

    There is not a lot of metal left on the 700 bolt face once it is opened up to fit a Lapua case, from .532 to .590"
