Re: APS 338 ALLEN MAG-Project officially started

25-06, I wanted it to be some what heavy, but still be able to move it around. I did not want it to be a 50 or 70 pound bench rifle. My other rifles weigh from 17 to 20 pounds and they aren't that bad when carrying. This rifle will be mostly used for long range varminting and target shooting. I might use it one day for an elk hunt. However, I am with you, it probably want be to fun to pack. I am hoping with the extra weight, and Kirby's APS 3 PORT brake, the recoil wont be that bad, LOL!!!! I am really looking forward to shooting this rifle. The 338 Allen Mag is one serious caliber.

Wildcat,

The gun dont recoil all that much, in a 15# rifle the recoil is like a 300win mag.

ss7mm, I took your recommendations and informed Kirby to make the changes on the stock. I went with 1 stud in front and put the flush mount cup behind the stud, I also changed the stud in the rear to the flush mount cup. Thanks for the info!

Re: APS 338 ALLEN MAG-Project officially started

Well, Kirby received the $$ yesterday, so I am offically going to be the proud owner of an APS rifle. I only made 2 minor changes to the ogrinal specs,

1. I took the advice from ss7mm and went with 1 Bi-pod stud in front followed by a Flush Mount cup, and I went with a Flush Mount cup in the rear. ss7mm, Thank you for the recommendation!

2. The only other change was the contour of the Barrel, it will be 1.350 tapered to 1.250.

Once again, Kirby's customer service has been outstanding. Thanks, Kirby!!

I am sure you will be happy with your APS product, Kirby does a hell of a job.

Shoot me a email when you start necking down the TTI brass to .338, always good to share info. I have a finished 338AM round setting on my desk at work and you should see the heads she turns, everybody thinks it is a 50BMG round!!!
