lazzeroni warbird

i am seriously considering purchasing a new lazz 7.82 warbird from lazzeroni. what has been any of yall"s experience with this gun? i like their advertised ballistics with their 168gr matchkings but their ammo is high and i dont reload but could probably talk some of my friends into reloading for me. also looking at 300rum any advice or insights would be appreciated . i really like the lazz. but just want to make a good decision

I have a buddy that has two of the warbirds and he loves them. He is getting really good performance out of them. You are right, the ammo is very high if you buy factory ammo. If you reload it isn't that big of a problem. Depending on what you want to do, the 300rum might do everything you want to do.

+1 on the 300rum. You could spend half the money on a full blown custom, have a rifle that shoots just as good, and it would be more of your own creation. I personally do not have any experience with lazzraroni, so I am not down playing their rifles quality or accuracy. I am baseing my opinion on the the fact that my custom 7wsm from RW Hart, and the 338 wsm I'm having Kirby Allen build me as we speak, will both outperform my own abilities (I'm pretty confident in Kirby's abilities, or my lack of!!!!) and are damn fine quality to boot, for less than half the cost your talking about spending. And that's without even talking about ammunition. If you don't reload yourself, stick with something you can get off the shelf in a pinch. That way you can still tune the rifle in with hand loads, but you also won't be relying on a "buddy" to come through for you and load up some shells every time you need some more. Or, better yet, learn a new hobby and start reloading yourself. That's how I got into reloading. I went out and bought a 30-378 and then had to buy bullets for the damn thing! Wish I knew those wern't included in the price only took me a few boxes of factory loads at $80 a box, to realize that I would make a pretty good reloader myself, and save alot of money to boot good luck with your new rifle either way. AL
you cant dump'em if you don't pull the trigger!

I love the Warbird! I had one built. Their gun is twice as much as a custom. Their barrels are schnieders, so I went to him and had him do all the metalwork on the gun. Then went to Mcmillan, bought their stock and had them bed it. What a shooter. The warbird is a blast! In all fairness, I have the 300rum also. Lots o fun but not the performance.

1/2 the price

I would look at custom build and take the other half the money and buy my own reloading setup and supplies and enjoy the new gun, and Buy another barrel for it when that gets shot out!

If it is the fact that is a Lazz then just go for it and do not look back. But if your looking for the best bang for your buck I think you could do better by calling a couple gunsmiths that frequent here. They do impressive work!

I have not experience with a Lazz, so take what I say with a grain of salt. You know what the say about Opinions!

Good luck--Either way you will not be disappointed.

Re: lazzeroni warbird

even back in 2006, the only thing they could pick on the Big Lazz for was the price ? ,,,,, I am just amazed at how long some of this this has been going on ,,,,,

maybe I work too hard and don't spend enough time on the internet ,,,,,

Re: lazzeroni warbird

First off it was 2008. Secondly, you're right! How dare they tell this member the truth! These members are all right, your rifles are more expensive than most customs. Not 1 of them bad mouthed your rifles or cartridge design, they were just giving this guy options.

If you can't handle reading the other side of the argument about your rifles, then don't read threads that don't praise your life's work the entire time, then don't read them.

I can't handle reading someone's opinion about the war in Afghanistan that that talks negatively about what my Brothers and I went through, so I do myself a favor and stay away from discussions like that. Apparently you need to do the same.
