Re: .338 M.O.A.G. (mother of all guns) pics and story

Kirb,
Thanks for your comments!
I would love to try some of those 300 grain match bullets. What is the availability on them and price?

I was getting an avg of 3026 with 98 grains of RL25. I might be able to go more, but it was showing some slight signs of being max. N170 was milder at 99 grains but needed more powder to find max. I think it will go up to about 103 grains fine.

Yes, it'll go subsonic at 2300 yards here but Kregg Slack sent me a video of his .338 Lap improved shooting at 3520 yards just fine. I guess that huge bullet still keeps going even if the velocity is sub. Time will tell.

Hey, could you post your gun here that looks like they might be twinners? Much appreciated!

Hey GG,
I remember the post that Kregg made about that tape, mentioning that he didn't want to go into the video business, but that he would send you a copy, still got it? I would love to see it!

Goodgrouper sir, would you mind posting a picture of the underside of the gun, specifically the trigger area? I had heard that the trigger does not sit flush with the bottom of the stock and that the trigger is partially inside the stock when the McMillan LBR and HBR stocks are used with smaller actions other than the big .50 actions.

Also, how much lead fill is in your stock to get your 50 pound plus weight?

Great lookin rifle and cartridge. Do you shoot LR Benchrest? You should. NBRSA Nationals in Sacramento this year and in Byers CO next year. By the way, what is that white stuff on the tops of those hills in the background?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Yes, 7mmrhb could possibly be talked into providing blueprints and a material list. Leave him a post on this thread and I know he'll see it.

abinok,
yeah I've still got it. I don't want to get in the video copying business, but If you send me a blank VHS and give me about a month (chuck season is starting and I will be terribly busy) I'll get you and only you a copy. If someone else wants it, you'll have to make it for them. A chain tape if you will.
