Re: First strike of lighting with 338 AM

This is John and if I were not there with tom and Shawn I would have never believed it posible. When the first shot was two inches high at 1073 yrds at a target 4 inches round I was a believer. The second shot found its mark sending the chuck into space with high fives all around. Then tom and I got our chance to shoot Shawns toy. All I can say is that I have never seen any gun shoot like that with first shot hits at 450 and 500 yrds for both of us it was a good afternoon. thanks Tom and Shawn for a great Day,,,And Shawn I want a 338 AM for my self,,,John

Here is a picture of my sub 16 lb, 338 AM. It is about the most fun you can have with your cloths on. BAT action, Broughton 32" fluted barrel (6 3/8" flutes), NF rings, NF NXS 5.5-22x-50mm NPR1, HS Precision stock (with much modification, my cheekpiece, recoil lug & muzzlebrake, Sniper Tools ACI, low pro level, and Harris "s" bipod with Pod-Loc.

Shawn, to say that is a sweet looking stick is simply a major understatement.i love your brake. are your slots ever so slightly off-center or the top and bottom flats off-center to expose a little more gas escape to the top side to give it just a wee bit of down push?
