Re: long heavy barrel picture request

This is the 300 WAMBOMAG which is my version of the 30/338 Lapua Improved.
The Lilja barrel is 31" long without the brake and 32.75" with, 1.25" at the breech and .980" at the muzzle, launches a 210 VLD at 3250fps.

pacnor seems to just have the most choices but I think their website is down I cant seem to get it to load in my pc .
Brux and Krieger will definitely make barrels over 30"

The brake is a custom anti-torque brake designed and produced/installed by the builder of the rifle, Sam at A.R. Tactical.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

thanks for that picture I like that rig. have you thought about trying the new accubonds long range bullets? their 210 is suppose to have a bc of .730 and the 190gr a bc of .620 I think . they look very good in the jbm ballistics calculator .
do you hunt with that rifle ?

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

The only bullet I've used is the JLK 210 VLD, I think the new 210 Accubond LR BC is closer to what the 210 VLD is, Nosler has inflated the BC for advertising benefits from what I've read about them here.

I have not hunted with it as of yet, just LR plinking of sorts, shot it in a few 1000yd matches and won one time with a 3 target agg of 5.73" for 15 shots, small group was 4.062"

With it shooting that well I think I will stay with the 210 VLDS for now.

Hopefully some day it will take some game at long range.
