The LRKM is Just about ready for production

Here is a photo of the preproduction prototype of the LRKM in 338 Edge + P. There will be very few changes from what you see here and the changes that need to be made will be extremely small. It is 15.9 lbs, trigger adjustable from 1-3.5 lbs, 44" OAL with a 32" Kreiger barrel 1-10 twist. The 338 Edge + P chambering is running the 300 Berger at 3023 fps out of this setup. Test groups are impressive.



The final load, test group.

. What are your impressions in the field? Looks very handy. Will you be doing adjustable cheek pieces? Do you notice the concussion under your nose?

It is extremely handy in the field, the neutral weigh makes offhand shooting very possible despite the weight. The cheekpiece is not adjustable but we make them in 1/8" increments to any size you might want. The shock is no different than a conventional rifle other than you are closer to the muzzle.

Shawn,

Can I assume that is 15.9 lbs with the scope? If so, which NF is on there? I am guessing around 32 oz or so?

Beautiful gun! Great Job!
