New 338 Lapua Magnum

Just recieved my new McMillan 338 Lapua EOL LRH rifle and attended the 2 day class in Phoenix put on by McMillan when you purchase one of there rifles. This was the best thing that could happen for me and learn how to use the SYSTEM setup. Bob Beck with Extreme Outer Limits and several Ex Military snipers were the instructors. We learned about the rifle and how to use the scope (Nightforse NXS 5.5-22x56 with level and ADI). We (16 people) shot medal targets from 350 + yards to 1830 Yards (longest target). It was a lot of one on one instructor help and was fantastic. I highly recommend this class and gun if you are thinking about it.
