Re: Pictures of the .338 Montana...

Is this the one???


ThIs Montana .338 Lapua us with a Mcmillan A-5 stock and a Nightforce scope. Skeptical at first I have had nothing but great results with this rifle. Included is a 5 shot 100 yard group. The rifle will hold MOA all the way out to 1000 yards. My father and I load 94 gr of H-1000 and shoot a 250 gr sierra at 3000 fps. My father harvested a 6x6 bull elk at 780 yards with three shots. The two that stuck the bull were 3 inches apart in the vitals, he didnt even stand a chance. The rifle not only looks killer but is a performer. Everyone in our family wants to use it next year for deer and elk season and I am sure the list of kills will incline rapidly.

Specs: .338 Lapua Montana action (matt), 30in # 8 contour barrel, Vias muzzle brake, factory trigger at 3lb, McMillan A-5 stock ( green, black and white marbling), Nightforce 12-42x56MM, Ken Farell 20 MOA base TPS rings

Thanks for a great looking and performing rifle, it wont just be used for punching paper but for punching harvest tags as well.

Re: Pictures of the .338 Montana...

Looks like a fine rifle! We should get together sometime and do a little bit of LR shooting. I'd like to shoot a big 338. My email is jkpeterson0317@hotmail.com Shoot me an e-mail one of these days if you want to get together sometime.
