.338-.408 Improved

This rifle was built for a fellow member here a few years ago. He went through shoulder surgery just before the rifle was delivered, and it proved to be a bit much for him to shoot. I liked the build so much, that I offered to buy it back from him.
Well, it has sat on the coffee table in my office for a few years, and is likely to sit there for another few years. I have decided to sell it, and give someone the chance to enjoy it.

The rifle was chambered by Bruce Baer, and stocked by me.

It has 42 documented rounds fired through it. I did the load developent before I shipped it. It shot around an inch group at 300 yards. I will provide the load data to the buyer.

Here are a few threads about the rifle:
338 Big Baer, new addition to the gang.
.338-.408 Bubinga Makeover

Specs are as follows:

BAT CT 1.53" round receiver with spiral fluted bolt, single shot.
BAT 20 MOA base
BAT stainless ADL trigger guard
Kreiger 10 tw barrel, 30" long, 1.350 at receiver face, taper to .900" at 30"
Vias brake
Jewell bottom safety trigger
A-5L Laminated flat sawn Bubinga stock
Pillar bedded, had applied tung oil Satin finish
Decelerator Recoil pad installed at 13 5/8 LOP
Thumbwheel adjustable cheek piece
Sling studs front and rear
Graphite Black Cerakote
14.5 lbs without optics

Items that go with rifle:

42 pieces of once fired Jamison brass
Baer Full length die and seat die

I will install a rail on the stock free of charge if the buyer wants it set up to use the Atlas bipod.

I will also offer all the information the buyer needs on the .338-.408 cartridge.

$7,500 plus shipping to your FFL

Wow Joel! I can't even allow myself to think about how cool it would be to have that in the same stable as my Bubinga stocked 308 Baer that came through your shop at the same time that one was built. They are practically litter mates

If only... I'm already jelous of who ever the lucky buyer is going to be
