ONE of the baddest 338 Allen Magnums on the planet for sale...

Well, This old girl has served me very well but for the past couple years she just set on the safe. Many of you that know me and have been around for several years may recognize this big girl, Its none other then Black Sunshine. I say old girl because she is 5 years old but her life has consisted of going from the safe, to the hard case to the bench and then back to the case and then safe, pretty well all is in new condition.

This is my personal heavy rifle which in 2007 make the longest varmint kill of the year with a rock chuck kill at 2370 yards as well as 11 kills total that year at ranged over 1000 yards. Including 3 over 2000 yards. The original barrel was a 40" straight cylinder making the rifle EXTREMELY heavy, really a two man set up operation.

I shot the throat out of that barrel, then set the barrel back 4" and rechambered and put another 600 rounds down that barrel before it started to go again. When that happened I called up Dan Lilja and ordered a Heavy straight taper stainless, heavy fluted barrel, 36" finish length, 1-10 twist. This took 8 lbs off the finished rifle weight which is currently around 50 lbs.

I fitted the new barrel this summer and have only accuracy tested it with my standard load which easily showed the rifle is capable of 1/2 moa accuracy potential. Very easy to shoot, and no muzzle brake blast!! Not needed with the weight of this rig. So why sell, I just do not have the time anymore to use the rifle like I would like to and I would much rather see a member of LRH have some fun with her then do nothing but sit in the safe. To much rifle to just sit and look at!!!

Here is the parts list:

BAT 2"x10" single shot receiver(stainless steel)
Jewell trigger with bottom safety
Lilja 1.750" shank, heavy straight taper
Heavy Flutes
36" finish length, 1-10 twist
Bead Blast matte finish on barrel
McMillan 50LBR stock, 50% black 50% red w/ decelerator recoil pad
Stainless steel pillar bedding
Metal ADL trigger guard
40 MOA rail base
IOR 35mm Tactical rings
IOR 9-36x56mm with M8 reticle





Now this is a HEAVY rifle. If you want a packing rifle, do not even think about this one but if your in the market for a heavy rifle in the most potent 338 caliber on the market built for one purpose, extreme range shooting, this one is for you. There is only one other 338 AM that is heavier then this rifle and that one lives in Oklahoma!!!

I am selling this rifle as a turn key package including:

Custom loading die set
50 rounds of formed brass
Cabelas 62" bulletproof aluminum hard case
Rifle w/ scope mounted
Load data
And of course my full backing of the rifle

Asking $7000 for the complete package shipped to your FFL in the lower 48.

If you want the rifle but not the optic package, asking $5500 for the package other then optics. Only thing that will be different is that I will be bead blast matte finishing the bolt handle as there are some wear marks through the original teflon coating and want to clean that up.

First come first serve. Here is a chance at ONE of the most impressive 338 Allen Magnum on the planet!!!

Sorry guys, can not help with the wife department. For some reason, gunsmiths are hated by wives for the most part. It seems like THEY believe that we "talk" their husbands into spending money...... LOL
