Why not lazzeroni rifles?

I was just talking to a guy who had a 308 warbird and it got me thinking about possible reasons why they don't seem to be very popular here. Just curious if anyone is using the lazzeroni's and/ or why not.

Thanks for the input, Mark.

I have been wandering about that myself.

Why not? Maybe it's the $5500-7000 price tag. Well lets see,
would I rather have two custom built or one lazzeroni???

I would guess it's a matter of cost. Talk to one of the smiths that frequent here and see what you could have built for $5500+. The guys here that are spending that money are most likely having rifles built to spec for them.

Re: Why not lazzeroni rifles?

The price MAY be worth it if they did something amazing. Dont get me wrong they can launch projectiles with a reasonable degree of accuracy at top velocities. Problem is we can do the same or very near the same for cheaper with better brass availability.

I am not going to shell out that kind of dough only to be limited to the cheap ***** brass only Laz makes. Give me Lapua grade brass and we'll talk.

Lazzeroni's (IMHO) are great for guys with too much money and know nothing about LR hunting and want to beat their chest infront of their friends and brag about how fast their bullets are.

I have worked with some Lazzeroni calibers and it didnt seem to me that they were any real advantages to them. Accuracy was average, velocities were average for top end magnums. I just dont see the need to spend twice the cash on an average rig. A factory WBY MkV in 30-378 costs a fraction and shoots bullets with nearly identical velocities with the same crap brass.

Re: Why not lazzeroni rifles?

Thanks for the conversation, but I should have been more specific. I realize that Lazzeroni rifles themselves are very price and I'm not one for spending that much (or even close to that much) on a rifle. But, the cartidges seem to have impressive balistics to have a custom rifle chambered in a warbird or a Tomahawk or something like that. I have heard that the brass was an issue and that they were perhaps a little finicky to do load depeloping for???
