Is the 16.6 lbs with the ATACR and bipod? Dropping to the NXS would save you 7 oz. That means I would only have to shave off 3 more oz. That seems doable.

Scot it is with everything as you see it, It is doable with a NXS.

Changing to an Atlas bipod would likely take care of the rest! Good to know it is at least possible.

I saw that final testing isn't complete but any idea on longevity of the suppressor before repairs or replacements are needed?

Re: LRKM - 3000 yard setup w / supressor

Well, this is getting to be even more interesting!

I've been watching the whole LRKM/338 +P set-up for a while now. Especially because I'm thinking that my traditional 338 Edge is fast approaching a time for a new barrel. And I've been really interested in getting a 338 Suppressor, as I have a .30 caliber suppressor now and what a difference it has made!

I look forward to more reports on your suppressor set-up Shawn!

My 338 Edge is still shooting extremely well, but like I said, I'm starting to wonder if I'll need a new barrel before too long. I just need to decide if I should stay with my traditional setup or move to the LRKM. :-)

Shawn

Thanks for the response on the scope. I shoot a lot in the desert at ranges at and beyond 1,900 yards (with my 7 WSM, 7 Dakota, and 338 LM Improved) so the additional elevation is required.

+1 I am very interested in a titanium 338 supressor. I have been looking hard at one that is quick release; how does your attach and how far back on the barrel does it fit (menaing how far back does the barrel need to be turned down to slide into the can?)

Could we get a video of it in action with the supressor?
