375AllenMag is going on a trip!

I was lucky enough to pick up this beautiful rifle in person towards the end of last summer. With the rush of hunting season, topped with WY winter, I never had a chance to do much more than break in the barrel. But, the big 375 is finally going to get stretched out. With the help of my good friend SenderoMan, the rifle is dialed in and headed to Glasgow, MT with us this weekend for some long range play! Will have more pics and a full report to follow!







Specs are:

BAT 1.55x8.5 single shot receiver
40 moa steel rail
30" Lilja barrel 1:10
APS large 5 port Painkiller muzzle brake
McMillan A-5 Desert camo
Jewell trigger with bottom safety
Cerakote finish
NF Ultralight tactical rings
NF NXS 5.5-22x50mm NP-R1
NF ACI with rail mount

Cinch, good luck up there. Stay out of the mud. Mom says the worst flooding she can remember.

Ha! I been watching the weather, doesn't look good at all. Hopefully we don't end up sitting in a cafe drinking coffee all weekend. But I guess we'll still end up meeting some good people and learning something. Thanks for the luck, TT!

Re: 375AllenMag is going on a trip!

Well, took it out to 875 yards, not far... but good starting point.

First round hit with 14 MOA dialed in. Held abut 1/2 moa wind.

Think it is gonna be a shooter ! Got video to post up too... soon, try in a little bit.

Chapstick is 2.75" long. The old hits are 7mm rounds, definitely tell the size difference !





Looking back from target to area shot from. Right off end of pivot by the buildings.

Re: 375AllenMag is going on a trip!

Way to go . . . on making me homesick.......

I have nearly the identical rig and won't get to shoot it until 2012

Kirby's early shots shows its a shooter. My 4 shots, Thanksgiving, were into a far hill to see if I could handle the recoil. What a joke. There was NO recoil.

I think i'm gonna cry

Happy for ya. . . . keep us posted........
