Default New build posibility?

I have seen the LR308 DPMS and really would like to do a ground up build on a Long Range rifle with this platform; however, instead of doing this in .308, I would like to build one in .338 lapua. Has anyone tried this or have had any experience with a similar build?

You won't be doing a 338Lapua build on a DPMS LR308 platform - cartridges are not compatible. You would need to start with a dedicated 338Lapua receiver set in order to build one.

With that said, I think it's a great idea and have had a desire for one for some time now
