.338 Lapua, whatever others may say about it, has proven to be a ballistically viable cartridge. Today, as I was trawling the internet I came across what must simply be termed the "God Gun" for big game hunters. A M1 Garand chambered in .458 Win Mag. Further research revealed to me a .338 Win. Mag. Model. This set me to wondering. Could a company produce a M1 Garand, or better yet, a M1A, in .338 Lapua? Yes, I recognize that recoil would be stout, mobility reduced, weight increased, etcetera, but I'm a firm believer that sometimes things should be done just because it's possible. So, is it possible to do with, say, less than $10,000 of modifications?
