It's not mine. It being built for a friend who I refered to Kirby.
From memory it's a 34" braked 338AM.
left handed Bat action. Bed block mounted barrel in a Tooley stock. Natural finnish. If the owner wants it public I'm sure he will post some pictures as soon as he either gets them or the rifle. Have you received pictures of yours yet?
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.

Only accurate rifles are interesting.

New Shooter,

The comment about the 338 WSM was directed toward the longest throat life with a high volume shooter.

If you want to shoot alot, the 338 WSM would offer a much longer barrel life then any of the larger 338 magnum rounds. This comment had nothing to do with inherent accuracy, ballistic performance or terminal performance. All I was referring to was throat life with high volume shooting.

The recoil with my 338 Allen Mag is about the same as my 270 win with no brake. Iowa is
Very pleasant to shot.

Re: 338 edge verses 338-408 chevy- tech

How about case availability. I have decided to get a snipe-tac or allen mag but am very leery of sinking stupid money onto a rifle that goes extinct, with its designer. Which leads me to the next question. Is the 338 snipe-tac and the 338 allen mag the same and can they be shot in the same chamber with the same accuracy results and load data? 338 edge and Lapua makes no sense when the 338-378 Weatherby out paces them on all accounts.
