Re: Allen builds-- Anyone order one recently?
Thanks for the feedback guys. My check is going out this week for a 338 AM only if I can get a few questions answered.
For those who have them... What is you barrel length and do you wish you went longer? Can you reach 3500 with a 34" tube and the 300g SMK?
How is the availability of the formed brass for Kirby? I have heard Chey Tac is going out of business and Worry about availability of brass. I have not asked Kirby many questions as I know he is busy, and he actually replied to the first email I sent him last week within 72 hours. He still seems to be running a first class operation but didn't answer all my question on brass as I had about 10 questions and he gave me a Very detailed reply on the rifle I am getting, but didn't comment on the brass.
Before I send Kirby a second email, as I know he is Very busy, I would appreciate feedback from anyone who knows the following.
--How obtainable is the 338 AM brass?
--I suppose the 375 CT brass has to be necked, trimmed, then fire formed unless it is obtained from Kirby--are there any other sources of brass or am I wrong with respect to Kirby being The only supplier of 338 AM brass? This is a Major concern as I want my barrel to be shot out from hunting, not fire forming.
--I read a post from Kirby back in 2013 stating that he had a "lightweight" version of the 408 based action (Stiller repeater, or possibly the BAT single shot?) in development. Does anyone know if this materialized?
If anyone can answer my above questions I would Sincerely appreciate it, especially FiftyDriver
