Barrett MRAD 338 Lapua Magnum

My first bolt action rifle and I know I have tons to learn for you all! I hope an old dog can still learn some new tricks. Just added a Leupold Mark IV 4.5-14X50 TMR M1 scope. Have yet to get out and fire her], but it seems like an awesome weapon.

Very nice rig! Send it my way and I'll be more than happy to break her in nicely for you.

Re: Barrett MRAD 338 Lapua Magnum

Thanks. Waiting for Sightmark green laser magnetic laser bore sight and Bore Tech bore guide, rod and cleaning gear to properly "season" barrel. I have read many differing opinions about the latter. My son and I just plan to use her on targets. To save ammo costs, I plan to get the 308 conversion kit when it becomes available, but that my be a year or two. The ranges near our house only go to 600-1000 yards, but after some experience with her, I would like to go to some classes in Raton, NM to put her through her paces at greater distances! She's built like a tank and makes my AR feel like a 22 cal. and I haven't even fired her yet! We may try to start reloading, but that seems like a whole other project.

Great rifle. You will enjoy. What range can you get to 1000 near Scottsdale?

Barrett did a nice job on this one. I have to admit if I had the pocket change I'd get one too. Let us know how it shoots.

The Ben Avery Range has 1000 yard competitions, but you need to belong to a club or organization to participate, according to their website. Usary Pass and Phoenix Rod and Gun Club have 500 yard max and there's an annual membership fee with the latter. Got the 338, since that's the highest caliber they'll let you shoot at the public ranges. Lots of open desert to shoot in, but restricted at this time due to fire danger.

Got ya, yes you need to make arrangements at Ben Avery and be a member of the 1000 yard club. Was wondering if there was a new spot I was unaware of.

Thanks.
