How about an update on the new 338AM. Any pictures yet?

Re: Specs for my 338am being built by kirby allen.

Congrats on the new build ! Sounds like a killing machine.

So does that mean if the gun weighs more than 16 lbs with the bipod on... then you take off the scope just beofe the shot to be legal ?? HE he he he !

DUH

Re: Specs for my 338am being built by kirby allen.

new shooter,

Congrats! That should be quite the rig. Keep us posted.

I know how you feel as Kirby has some parts for a 338AX for me and Tom Manners is finishing up fitting a BAT HRPIC action, jewell trig, PTG Al bottom metal and Wyatt's 4" box to the stock and then pillar bedding it and sending to Kirby. Should be to Kirby within a week or two. Just ordered NF 5.5 - 22 x 50 with NPR1 from Third Generation Shooting Supply the other day as well. Seekins Med rings--blah, blah blah.

I'm curious why your aren't going with the NPR1 reticle, espcecially with the ultra long range capability of the 338AM? From my personal experience with several different triggers, including the RB (and I know Kirby much prefers the Jewell), I would encourage you to consider a jewell trigger for that thing. Just my .02.

Congrats again!

Jon

new shooter, are you going with Kirby's APS medium 3 port Painkiller muzzle brake? 32" barrel w/brake puts ya out there at about 33-34" that's a long stick-very nice. Quite the impressive list of components, you'll have to post some pics once it's completed.

Sounds like a top rig.
It should shoot way out there with the .338AM and 40 MOA rail.

Kirby has helped me and seems like a great bloke. I am sure you will have a rifle to be proud of.
