.338 Allen Magnum...WOW!

I had the distict priviledge of not only seeing a .338 AM this weekend, but actually got to shoot it! WOW! was this one impressive beast! A J Peacock stopped on his way back from his easter visit to his family and brought the AM along. It was a beautiful day with no wind so naturally we had to burn some powder. we both shot sighters on the steel @ 650 yds and the gun was right on the money after him not having shot it since last elk season. we then moved out to milk jugs @ 800 yds.....not a problem....2 dead jugs.....he then wanted to check his windage just to be sure and shot my hanging plate over on the edge. this is a peice of 3/4" cast steel that is called a mucking plate in a mine.....the AM shot right thru it at 800 yds! my 6X284 barely even scratches it!

this is the first Kirby Allen build i have had the pleasure to see/shoot, and i want you to know that it is a work of precision shooting art..... thanks for the fun AJ.......aj

Kirby does do a pretty good job doesn't he? "Pretty good" as in first class all the way.

Glad you had fun with the big girl, they are a thrill to shoot. You just can not discribe the experience properly unless you pull the trigger as you know now very well.

Anyway, nice shooting!!
