Extremely rare opportunity: NEW 338 Allen Magnum turn key rifle for sale

Well, this does not happen often, in fact this is the first time I believe. Contacted a customer that his rifle project was ready to ship. He informed me that he had come into some finanical issues and sadly needed to put the rifle up for sale. He wanted to see if I could sell the rifle for him, so here are the details.

This rifle is one of my APS Xtreme Heavy Sporters (XHS) chambered in 338 Allen Magnum and with the following parts list:

BAT Model M 1.53"x8.5" round single shot receiver
BAT 40 moa stainless steel rail base
Lilja Stainless steel 34" XHS custom contour barrel
Heavy 50 cal style barrel flutes
APS 5 port Painkiller muzzle brake
Bead Blast stainless matte finish on metal surfaces
McMillan A-5 carbon fiber shell stock
Custom piller bedding
Jewell trigger with bottom safety
ADL trigger guard
Nightforce 5.5-22x 50mm NXS w/ NP-R1 reticle, zero stop
4 NF Ultralight Tactical rings
Ring cap scope level with ACI mount and indicator
338 Allen Magnum custom loading die set
300 rounds of 338 Allen Magnum ammo loaded with 265 gr TTSX @3460 fps
Cabelas 62" Bulletproof aluminum hard case

Again, this is one of my complete turn key rifles. This mean the loads have been developed, tested, rifle zeroed at 1000 yards and ammo ready to shoot including hard case, loading dies and shipping cost.

basically, you take this rifle from the hard case, confirm zero and drops for your area.

Here are some pics of the rifle during long range testing.







This rifle has only 45 rounds down the barrel in load testing and zeroing rifle. Its 100% new conditions.

The owner is asking $10,500

Again, this includes:

Complete rifle with optical system
Loading dies
300 rounds of custom loaded ammo
Aluminum hard case
Shipping and insurance cost to your FFL

The owner may be willing to take offers but he wanted to list the rifle at full value for the complete package being sold. It may also be an option to do something different with the loaded ammo as well.

The owner wanted to develope a load using the 265 gr TTSX Barnes bullets because he wanted a single bullet that would work specifically for elk hunting at any range from 300 to 1200 yards and this rifle shoots the 265 gr TTXS bullet extremely well, right on par with what is normally seen with the 300 gr SMK bullets.

As with all rifles I sell, first come first serve. If your interested in the ultimate 338 magnum for performance and accuracy in a package that is relatively lightweight, and you do not want any waiting for a complete custom rifle to be built, this is THE opportunity for you.

Contact me if your interested, serious inquirers only please. This is a very serious long to extreme range rifle so can not recommend it for a first custom rifle but instead its the top of the performance ladder by all standards of measurement.

I would have to weigh it to get an exact number but I would estimate it in the 17 lb range.

Somebody is going to get a sweet long range hammer.

I've pulled the trigger on my 338AM at Big Game, 4 times = 4 DRT's

The 338AM is an astounding rifle without peer anywhere!

Not to be offensive in any way but I thought something like that would be around $6000 give or take. I would like to do a 7 allen mag put I will have to change that path. Was I in for a awakening . I know it is a fine grade weapon. Man these toys are getting spendy now days.

Rifle = $
Scope = $
2 sets of NF rings = $ * 2
300 brass @ $4 each + reloading.
Dies = $
Case = $
ACI indicator, level and mount = $

I own a 338AM that is VERY similar to this one. Considering what mine cost 4+years ago, the price is dead on. Put another way, I have that much in mine, when you add in all the extras. But this one has the newer zero stop NightForce scope, which is worth more than mine.
