Dear Mr. Allen:
I am interested in your 300 Allen Xpress cartridge and its potential for the types of game animals I pursue in Arizona. If I understand the data correctly, the 300 AX uses the 338 Lapua as the parent case and is necked down to accommodate a 30-caliber bullet. Does your 300 AX design "improve" the Lapua case or does it maintain the factory Lapua dimensions? I would intend this gun to be the most versatile rifle in my arsenal. Capable of talking small varmints/predators all the way to elk - and everything in between. While the majority of my hunting distances are less than 500 yards, one of the best trophy deer areas in Arizona (The Strip) could easily present shots beyond 500 yards. I would generally anticipate using either a 165-grain or 180-grain projectiles.
In addition to learning more about the 300 AX design and performance; I'd like to discuss having you build me a custom 300 AX. For initial discussion purposes, my specifications are as follows:
- BAT Action
- Krieger barrel, 3/8" flutes, 30" finish length
- APS small 3 port Painkiller muzzle brake
- Jewell trigger
- McMillan A-5 tactical stock w/ Decelerator pad and with thumbwheel adj. check piece.
Any additional information, comments or suggestions you could provide about your 300 AX would be sincerely appreciated. Please let me know the best method of communicating with you on this subject.
