My name is Robert and I have been reading on this site for months and especially reading about the 338 Allen Mag and I just placed an order a few weeks ago. I am pumped and glad to be here. Kirby has ordered everything so now its just a waiting game but one I am definitely willing to wait for. I am in Durant, OK but am originally from Gillette, WY. I love hunting out west and go at least 3 times a year for antelope, mule deer, elk and whatever else I can draw for. Just wanted to say hi and look forward to posting some things. My current long range rifle is a Weatherby Accumark 30-378 glass bedded tuned trigger with a Leupold VX-7L 4.5x18. I love this gun but after reading about the 338 AM there is no comparison.
Basically it is almost exactly like AJ's. It has a 70%black 15%white 15%grey stock but other then that is pretty much the same. I am topping it with a nightforce 5.5-22 50mm with sterostops and NPR1 reticle. If you want to know anything else just let me know.
338 AM from Kirby, that's all a man needs; for real long range that is. You'll be very happy with yours. For shorter distances we need some more toys...
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!! ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
Welcome to LRH. There is a lot of info on this site about Kirby and his Allen cartridges. I myself have a 375 Allen Mag in the process of getting finished up. Kirby is generally too busy to keep up with a website.
A search for 338 Allen Magnum will bring up a lot of info on the 338, and comparisons to the 'smaller' 338's.
