Accuracy, Power, Light Weight Make the Noreen Bad News .338 Lapua ULR the Ultimate Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle.

Does anyone have one of these and if so how are they?

Thanks

NV/Shtr,

For some reason I keep clicking on that link.

If I didn't have a build in progress that is about the same price I'd jump on it just for the experience.

I wonder about the aluminum receiver raises a question or two regarding how much it can be souped up.

I've heard of no owners yet and am eagerly awaiting some kind of report.

Since I've been shooting the 338 RUM I've become appreciative of the big bore's capabilities. If RUM velocities could be achieved from the Laupua w/the Berger the 300 gr projectile offerings it would be a certain keeper. (If the accuracy were there)..

Re: Noreen Bad News .338 Lapua

I do not own one but have shot one. They are a dream. I would say it is comprable to a 243 win on recoil, believe it or not. I was amazed. I would have to say if it was ever made In a 300RUM I would break the bank to buy one of these remarkable rifles. It shot that good. 1000yrds is a chip shot with this rifle. Was shootin at a 24" steel plate at 1000yrds and should have been shootin it at 2000yrd. 5 shots 5.25" group. Yes 5.25" group. Not 5.25 MOA group. If this email somehow makes it the " The Man " who makes this rifle, I'll take 1 in 300RUM PLEASE!!!!

I will say it. Do you work at Noreen? I know Pete and he would say you are likely full of it.

It's a decent firearm. don't get me wrong. you didn't shoot that group out of it. And it kicks much more than a 243
