Kirby Allen

Does any body have his contact Number? I am interested in a 338 Kahn and want to talk to him about it.

Thanks,

    The best way to start a dialog with Kirby is to e-mail him. Just click on "fiftydriver" and you will get his personal email address.

    Kirby built my .338 Kahn for me. In one word "awsome" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
    He did a great job on the rifle, it not only shoots great, it looks great as well. I posted a pic last night on the thread "buck @ 406 and doe @ 689) if you have not seen it already. If there is a more powerfull .338 round out there I don't know of it and you can't go wrong getting Kirby to build it for you.

    oneshot976,

    E-mail sent.

    As most know in here the quickest way to converse with me is via e-mail as I am the secratery, supply boy, cleaning crew, billing person and oh yes, gunsmith at APS. I check and respond to e-mails early in the morning and generally late at night before sack time.

    If you call, leave a message and I will return your call first chance I get.

    Look forward to mauling over another 338 Kahn project, always love to build the big 338s!!

    Exactly what is a 338 Kahn? How does it compare to the 338 RUM? I may just have to have one.

    Derek,

    The 338 Kubla Kahn is made from the parent case of the 338-378 Weatherby. It has a 30 degree shoulder rather than the double compound radius of the 338-378. There is a small increase in case capacity of around 8 to 10 percent.

    Both the Kahn and the 338-378 are significantly larger in case capacity than the 338RUM.

    Here is a picture of all three, left to right, 338RUM, 338-378, 338 Kahn. All three are loaded with 210grn TSX bullets. [image][/image]

    For a comparison of velocity between the Kahn and the 338RUM, just use the 338-378. For example out of the Barnes manual: 338RUM 200grn XFB, highest listed vel. 3186, 338-378 same bullet, 3338. And for real world, with my HP Precision 338RUM I can get 3250 out of the Barnes 210 TSX, with my 338 Kahn I can get 3500. I am getting 3150 with the Kahn and 250grn SMKs.

    RDM, thank you. I'm assuming Kirby designed the Kahn. What action is yours built on? I may have to get one in 2006.
