here's a few pics of my 338 rum.
nothing fancy, just a plain ole working gun. weighs 9.2 lbs. without sling or ammo in her belly.
my recently past machinist friend put her together for me.
remmy 700 magnum action, bleprinted.
douglass s.s. barrel with oversized lug.
dual dovetail baes and rings, held on by 8-40 screws.
and a refinished stock with an extra recoil pin thru the lug area.
load is 95.0 grains of reldr 25 under a 250 sierra gameking, at 3,052 fps 12 feet from the muzzle.
300 meter plate.
400 meter plate 2 shots. the copper marks you see are from my 280ai with 140 ttsx's.
no 600, but here's at 700 yards.
and last the furthest we can go on this range. 800 yards ,2 shots under 5 inches !
i think i have a shooter ! wind was blowing and i really didn't try to dope the gusting wind, was just working on confirming the clicks, so i could order a turret from kenton industries.
so wadda ya'll think ? is she gonna work ??
