I have 2 of his rifles. The fastest delivery was in 2006 when he was just getting going. Sweet rig!!!
Second one, couple of years ago, was a bit longer. Again a sweet rig. In fact a bit more than sweet!!!
Kirby is a one man operation and does take some time to hunt. A fella has gotta keep the mind straight.
It'll take whatever time it takes but you can rest assured that you will get what you paid for AND it will shoot. If it don't shoot he won't ship.
I am confident that when he is done with it will be of meticulous fit and finish and will shoot!
The 338 AM is most probably the most reasonable heavy duty LR rig in existence. I have the 375 AM and it is not noticeably more than the 338 but it is more.
Only 50 grains more bullet.
