All hunters using Allen Precision Shooting rifles, please read....

To all my customers using APS rifles or handguns,

While hunting in Idaho with Shawn Carlock this past November he showed me something very interesting, he had recorded all his customers that had taken big game at ranges past 300 yards with his rifles.

I thought as a rifle builder that would be very interesting as well to keep track of such accomplishments of my customers.

So, if you have an Allen Magnum or any other rifle made by me in any chambering, if you could just reply by giving a quick discription including the chambering, range and critter taken so I can start a similiar record book. If you have taken more then one animal at over 300 yards, please include information on each critter taken.

I am thinking about doing an APS Longest kill of the year award type thing which would start next year. Nothing big, $50 credit for the shop or something like that. Still have to decide on the ethical issues doing this on big game so it may or may not happen yet.

Anyway, of you could reply to me at the e-mail address below when you get a chance I would greatly appreciate it. I know the list is already pretty long but want to try to get everyone on the list that has taken big game at over 300 yards with one of my APS firearms.

Thank you for your time,

Kirby Allen(50)

Well I will happily shoot you the details, do you want them here or to your e-mail?

Also in the case of the rifle you built me, I am calling it my "Heavy Varmint Rig", so the ethics thing probably won't come into play for me. I am basing my definition on the following site,
Varmint rifle

Since I specifically had you build it to anchor hogs at LR. I do however need to work on my LR approach, the last one was only about 75 yds and wasn't a pretty site.

ANyway here is the dope on mine,

30" Lilja Stainless #7 contour 1-8" Twist
Remington Magnum Receiver - accurized
Holland lug
Holland Brake
Matte finish barrel
Match grade striker assembly
Jewell Trigger adjusted to 1#
H-S Precision Stock w/ extra swivel stud - Grey with Black Web
Burris base/Sig rings with +20 insert set,
Nightforce - 5.5x22x50

Longest kill so far, but I am ready to at least double that hopefully soon.

Not money, a hat! Now wouldn't Mike look snazzy in that picture of the pig with a black baseball cap with gold lettering that said "APS" "Ft Shaw, Mt".

Then he could get a T-shirt that said "Where the h*ll is Ft Shaw?"
