338 Allen Xpress-***SPF****

I have decided to sell this rifle to fund my 375/408 cheytac project....I received this from Kirby about 2 months ago and have 30 rounds down the tube. The rifle shoots awesome and it was one that Kirby wanted to keep because he knew how it was going to shoot.

Here are the specs:
Nesika Model M
McMillan A5 stock..50% forest green, 25% black, 25% woodland tan
Lilja #8 32" barrel w/ heavy fluting 1-10 twist
Jewell trigger
HS detachable magazine
Nesika 20MOA rail
Kirby's PK muzzle brake
338 Allen Xpress Hornady FL sizing die and Forster Ultra seater die
100 rounds of brass.....70 formed by Kirby, 30 once fired










Asking $3700 for the whole package shipped to the lower 48. I have more than that into it, but I would rather someone be able to use it than have it just sit in my safe. The buyer will need to provide a case for shipping the rifle, or I can get one for an additional charge.


5/29/09: Rifle is sold pending funds

Thanks,
Travis

Re: 338 AX XHS Rifle

Travis,
a couple of questions.
What is the weight?
COAL with the 300gr to fit the DMB system you have on it?
How acurate is it ?
How is recoil and muzzle flip, and can you spot your shots with it ?
Thanks,
JIM

Re: 338 AX XHS Rifle

Jim,

I ran the 300's at 3.675" OAL. This was just touching the lands. The mag box will only allow 3.70".

Weight is 13.5lbs according to my bathroom scale. It is very well balanced with the longer barrel.

Accuracy is really good....I only shot 3 shots on paper to get it dialed in before shooting long range....3 shots were well under the 1/2moa..closer to 1/4moa ctc. Shot it a ranges out to 1100 and had no problems hitting clay pigeons on first round hits.

Recoil is very manageable, and you are able to spot your own shots easily at distance and even around 300yds. The PK brake is extremely effective.

Thanks
Travis

Re: 338 AX XHS Rifle

On your 375/408 are you going to have Kirby build it, and what action are you going to use? Thanks Kyle.

Re: 338 AX XHS Rifle

Kyle,

I am going to either use a Lawton 8500 or 8000 action depending on if I want it heavy or light. The 8500 is pretty close to the BAT Model M most guys are using, only a little smaller in diameter. Cheytac uses them on their lightweight 408's and 338 LM's. I haven't decided yet on which version yet....I have my own 375/408 Improved reamer.

Travis
