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

Jpeaston,

I shot this rifle for groups at 1200 yards with the 265 gr TTSX, 300 gr SMK and 300 gr Berger Gen 2.

It preferred the 300 gr SMK the best shooting a couple sub 1/2 moa three shot groups. The 265 gr TTSX was damn near just as good, the Berger bullet ran in the 3/4 moa range. All more then adiquate for extreme range shooting and hunting.

Tested the Barnes 265 gr TTSX to see how it would expand at extreme range, at 1300 yards, the recovered bullets looked advertisement perfect with full mushrooms. Even more impressive was that at 500 yards, from three recovered bullets, only one had lost a petal and only one at that. Held together well. I would not think twice about punching a bullet elk from any range from around 300 out to 1300 yards with this rifle and expect good terminal performance.

Kirby; beautiful piece of craftsmanship? What would be the estimated number of rounds through the tube before it needs a rebarlel and at what cost? Just curious b/c I tend to shoot many rounds at range throughout the year. I liked the rifle to be an extension of me, to gain the greatest confidence.

Calmshot,

800 to 1000 would be about max from what we are seeing if you take care of the bore and do not heat it up and keep shooting.

It would be about $1000 to rebarrel with a new fluted SS barrel and all machining and finish work to get you back up and running again. About what you would pay for many upper quality factory rifles....

Jeff 300,

Hope the edge is still treating you well.

Keep in touch, I was suspecting this rifle would have been gone by now so who knows, may still be around.

I think the biggest hang up with this sell is the large amount of ammo loaded with the 265 gr TTSX. Had they been loaded with the SMK I think it would be a none issue.

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

B23,

I will be honest, the load they are loaded up with is a relatively mild load simply because the owner wanted a load that would be comfortable in all situations. As such, I had to throttle back the load a bit to the 3450 fps level they are at now.

This rifle will break 3500 fps with this bullet if the load is developed where it will be used such as similiar temps and elevation. I have not done ALOT of BC testing with these 265 gr TTSX but from what I have done, it seems to be running in the 0.620 to 0.630 range. Certainly not the best in the world for long range ballistic performance but when you add the terminal performance and the ability to survive this launch speed on closer range impacts on big game, pretty impressive.

Because of the higher velocity, the trajectory is very similiar between the 265 and 300 gr SMK out to around 1200 yards.
