Just got her cleaned last night with new Bore Tech cleaning package. Waiting for boresight, so probably won't get to the range and shoot for 3-4 weeks. I'll get some more pictures and let you know how accurate she is,at least at 100 and possibly 200 yards.

Re: Barrett MRAD 338 Lapua Magnum

Been gathering all the gear and practicing, since this is my first LR rifle. Even purchased a custom 308 for cheaper practice. MRAD easily shooting 0.75 MOA groups at 100 and 200 yards. Rifle much better than the shooter. Would like to stretch her out in a month or 2 and it sounds like you have found a good spot and my son and I always like to get together with other shooters. You can contact me at sib1948@cox.net and maybe we can plan to get together for some distance shooting in the future.

Re: Barrett MRAD 338 Lapua Magnum

Nice rifle!!! How are you shooting with her now that you have had it for a while? I got mine about 2 years ago serial number 41 and I love mine!!

Originally I put a Leupold M4 w/ Barrett Bors system on it. I was worried that I would want more glass on it and I was right so I put the Leupold/Bors on one of my Remington VTR's and put to a Nightforce NXS 8-32x56mm on the MRAD and have been much happier with it.

With right out of the box Hornady Match ammo I am getting 6" groups at 1100 yards consistently (and I am not the best shot either) and have taken animals close to those ranges. I just got permission from the landowner 3 farms down from mine to shoot down the high-tension wire break onto my rifle range for distances out to 2000 yards and beyond.. I will hopefully get a crack at it tomorrow!

Just need to work out a good reload for her. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! I have an AAC Titanium QD for it as soon as my ATF transfer is in!!! Let me know how you are doing with yours and if you have any questions for me. I have put a thousand or better rounds through mine so far..If your ever in SE Indiana and wanna shoot just holler at me!!
