Bill & Lerch\'s \"APS Xtreme Range 338 Allen Mag\"

The long grueling wait is over and FedEx finally droped off a 100 + # package. I was gone to lunch and they told me the first thing he said was HELP!!!!! There's not really much to say other than we are both VERY HAPPY w/everything about the gun!! As usual, Kirby's work is impeckable. I'll shutup now and let the pics do the talking!!

Here's the specs:
338 Allen Mag
Lilja 40" 1.75 straight tube pipe 1-10" twist
Bat 10" action
McMillan HBR stock weighted to 25#(30% white,30% grey, 40% black).
Ivey 150MOA adjustable rings
Jewell Trigger set at 5oz
NF NXS 12-42x56mm CH-3 reticle

Here's the package as FedEx delivered it.




Here are the Storm cases opened revealing the contents!! The bbled action was shipped in a seperate case from the stock. Keep in mind these are full size 52" rifle cases!! You could curl the bbled action and get a workout!!




Here's a couple of pics of Kirby's fine bedding work and the lead in the stock.



Me tightening the action screws and Lerch mounting the scope.



A few pics of the rifle fully assembled.




Lerch and I beside the rifle. The damn thing is as tall as I am!!!!


The 5" forearm.


She weighs in @ a feather lite 59.3 # scope and all. We were thinking that she would be about 70# but 60# is plenty!!! As you can see from these pics Lerch and I both ate our Wheaties this morning [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

That thing is a BRUTE man. I can hardly wait to see some targets. Hell Tim is heading North this evening, I will have him set one up and call you with the coordinates. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I doubt we will ever place an order for one like that, but if you ever head south be sure to pack it along, we will definatley shoot up some of your ammo. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

WHAT THE HECK IS THE MUZZLE BRAKE FOR???? DECORATION! Or MAKE THE RIFLE SOUND MORE LIKE IT LOOKS? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
Scope looks to small, you need to mount a Wild Rangefinder on top!

Nice!

Bill and Lerch, that is an awesome looking rig. Kirby's work looks awesome. I can't wait to hear how she shoots. Keep us informed. I feel sorry for the PDogs out your way, I don't think they're going to be safe unless they're about 4000 yards away.
