Re: Any Lazzeroni shooters?
Had one in the Sako TRG-S, and got 3650fps with 168gr Barnes XLC. I sold it and got a 300RUM...I'm now getting within 100fps of the Warbird with 180gr bullets, so I'm satisfied as far as velocity goes, and now my components are a lot easier to come by and my gun (700 LSS) is not as finicky as the TRG-S was. Listen to the rest of the guys on here when they say that shooting the Lazzeroni isn't worth the money--brass is expensive, and very soft. Also, don't shoot the light bullets in the big magnums--they're meant to push the heavier, higher BC bullets faster and flatter. You'll have flatter trajectory past the 500 or 600yd mark than with the light, ultra-fast bullets. I seem to be the only one of any lazz shooters I know that was able to achieve the velocity that was advertised, and my brass seemed to hold up ok, but none of my friends' brass did. Bottom line in this ramble is that a Rem 700 platform with either a 7 RUM or 300 RUM will give you all you could ever want--especially a good action to throw a custom barrel on. Save your money and go with a RUM and a good scope--wish I would have done that to begin with.
