As above I also love my new Remington 700 AAC-SD in .308 , and I also will eventually replace the Hogue OverMolded stock with something nice, but that'll be the last thing, after just purchasing a Nikon Monarch 5-20x44mm BDC, a Harris BRMS bipod, Viking Tactical padded sling, etc. I'll eventually get a nice stock, but will wait to get what I really want.
I just wanted to say, if you're really trying for an M24(kind of like me in a way), I can't see why you're going .338 ... you do realize .338 LM is like, what, $5 MINIMUM DIRT CHEAPEST a round, more like $7-$10 *A SHOT* ? And it's gonna knock you back a bit, it's not for the normal shooter, we are talking about extremely trained military snipers or *extremely* invested/skilled hunters...
Even the Army's newest upgrade was simply to .300 Winchester Magnum I believe, more than more than enough for most.
