.338-.408 is singing cold steel blues!

Gentleman...

Thought i would share with you my new girlfriend....

This is what she looks like...



with no clothes...



When we go on short walks together at 100yds this is what she does for me...




When we go out to the range together we laugh and talk about wind together.. she likes going long...

525 yds 3 shots. around 2"


909 yds (3 new hits) around 7 inch


1019 yds. (wind got me.. 3rd off the plate but it would have been KILLER!)



this is her heritage....

Chambered in .338-.408 cheytac improved.
BAT action
Benchmark barrel
Russo stock
Jewel trigger
Muscle brake
SB scope


Hopefully Her and I will get some good (but clean) video for your viweing pleasure this weekend when we travel to S. Tx together for whitetail..

The rifle shoots incredible! And as always Joel kicked a** on the stock!!!

Under Joels "guidance" load development was a breeze as well as the whole build process for this rifle!

I do plan on cerakoting it black after season... think it will look better against the bubinga stock.

(Wolf Whistle) - That is a sexy woman!!!

That is an interesting build to say the least. How much is the Cheytac brass, and how hard is it to find. She sure does shoot nice!

What about recoil? What is your load?

Re: .338-.408 is singing cold steel blues!

I am using bertram brass.

The recoil is nothing with that brake... there is some blast but no shoulder recoil...

Yeah, the verdict might still be out on coating her...
