I just picked up a Baer Custom rilfe in 330 Baer. As I understand it the 330 Baer and 338/416 Rigby are basicly the same cartridge. The rifle was built for a guy to hunt elk out west but desided it was to heavy. It weights 28#'s. I am thinking about using it for 1 mile match shooting here locally and am interested in what others are shooting in thier 330 Baer's or 338/416 Rigby's.
Here's a few photo's I hope of the Rifle.
Same gun with my NM M1A for size.
It's built on a Hall mag action, Kreiger SS Barrel, Vias break, Jewel Trigger ( I think ), MCM "Big Mac" stock, Baer 50 MOA scope base, Talley rings and NF BR scope. I got the rifle and scope as a package very cheap and five rounds of ammo. Still need brass, bullets and dies. Would really like to shoot 300 SMK's for the 1 mile matches if they will group well. This is my first big gun and am stoked to get it up and running. So, anyone have first hand experience with a 330 Baer or 338/416 care to share some tips?
Oh, and happy new year to all, Donald
