Re: 1000 yard testing on 338 snipe-tac...Hunting class rifles

6 inch groups with the fire breathing monster off a bipod isn's too shappy 3250 fps with the 300' sierra should take away alot of winddrift at 1000. Nice shooting rifle. Got a new SIII 6-24x50 in the mail. Sightron had a bad lot of glass. They took care of me and were very nice thats all that counts. I'll send it to you in december to test on a real gun, not like my wimpy 22-243 ackley with a muzzle break. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Reed,
Can't wait to give the scope a try, i should have two new Snipe-Tacs ready by then. Both will have the ABS carbon fiber barrels, both single shot, one Ti action and the other stainless. I got one of the stocks in today from Lone Wolf, 100% carbon fiber...i didn't have a chance to weigh it, but the whole package, box and all was 3#. Don says it should be just under 2#. These two rifles are being made special for carrying. The whole setup is very ridgid, small loading ports, large dia carbon bbls and the very strong carbon stocks. The barrels are 32" 1.400 breech tappered to 1.100 muzzel, with Ti brakes installed. I think my next rifle will be like one of these, in 375cal.

Dave

I weighed the stock blank today, with no pad and studs installed it was a sweet 26oz. Don tells me with out the gel coat i can loose another 4oz. With out gel coat the stock looks pretty cool too, you see the basketweave of the carbon fiber under clear epoxy.
