I have a full custom 338 RUM built by Mike Lau (the real sniper around the same as Chandler) the owner of TBA (Texas Brigade Armory) it is basically an M40 except for the chamber muzzle brake and length of barrel. Here is what it has:
Rem. LA blue printed
Tubbs recoil lug
Badger 20 MOA base
Dura coat matte black
Vais muzzle brake
Throated for 300 SMK's
Heavy barrel just like the old Marine Sniper M40's I just cant recall the taper at this moment.
It will shoot (5) factory Rem. in the 250gr class at 200 yds in a key hole, meaning just a little out of one hole to make it look like a key hole. I have not done any load testing yet, but the barrel has been broken in and only has about 75 rounds thru it. I have $4500 invested and about 20mos. wait.
Trades.... sure but I am picky and only looking for a few things, for instance I need a new shotgun. So an Caesar Gurenni (sp?) in a 32"trap or sporting Magnus style. Or a Kimber match 22lr HB plus a bunch o'cash. Or ?????
Thanks guys pics will go to those REALLY interested. The price should start like $4000 but I am not like most folks I understand that a gun is used, so lets price this at $3500.00. Changed selling price cause it wont come with Storm case.
Price lowered to $3250.00 The last price reduction $3000.00
