338 Big Baer

Here is the latest Joel Russo/Bruce Baer creation. this is my 338 Big Baer (338-408) built on the new Stiller 408 action. He has a 1.450 and 1.6 and I chose the 1.6 in a single shot.

Barrel is a 32" 1.350 tapered to 1.0 Bartlein in 9.7 twist and fluted with a Darryl Holland Radial Brake.

Jewell trigger, Bruce Baer/NF 30 MOA base, NF rings and scope level and ACI. Scope is NF 5-22x50 and have a Davis 3X eyepiece to add to it for LR work. Bruce even did his "zero stop" conversion that works as good as the NF and costs a whole lot less. I will let him tell you about it if you call or email him. Well worth the few dollars he charges for it.

Stock is one sweet Joel Russo A5L with adjustable cheeckpiece in high grade bubinga. Only one sling stud at front for a bipod.

this is strictly a mile comp and LR hunting gun so no need for slings.

Bruce made a great set of custom dies and I have 100 pieces of brass sized down and turned to fit this baby. Bought 8 lbs of 50 BMG at the gunshow today so ready to start loading and fireforming soon.

    BH, Congratulations, that's one big bad boy cartridge. Awesome looking rig. I love wood stocks and your is gorgeous. Joel makes some mighty fine artwork out of a chunk of wood and that piece you got I'm sure wasn't cheap. Keep us posted on how it shoots. Enjoy.
