Re: 8.59 Titan Lazzeroni
Well, I think you are headed in the right direction offering a 10x barrel in the warbird and titan. Your CT model should offer a competitive option for those looking for a stout, rugged, heavy duty BIG 338 sledge hammer with a good twist for the high BC heavy weights.
Just wondering why you went with the detachable magazine on the XTLR? That rig looks awesome but may be a bit much with the magazine?
Looks like your headed down the right road for todays market!
The 285's sounds good but dont overlook the variety of 300's. Not as fast but carry a bit further. The Scenar has been a VERY accurate 338 bullet for me but the jacket is to thick to be used on game. The 300 SMK is always a sure bet. The Bergers.....? Not too sure about them yet. Maybe others can chime in on them. I have used them with good LR accuracy but not sure how they work on thin skinned game. Barnes is coming out with another one as well. I think 285 grains?? I would have to double check but that may be a good stout hunting bullet for the 8.59 cannon. The bullet that has me MOST excited is the 300 grain ACCUBOND coming soon from Nosler. Truely a well constructed bullet with a .720ish BC would be a PERFECT fit for your 8.59 Titans in the long range 10x barrel versions.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
