    Thanks

    TH

    The Rifle weighs 30.5 pounds and the recoil is like a heavy barreled .223 if that.

    Do to the brass issues we were having the rifle hasn’t been shot much, when Kirby tested it at 1000 yards he was getting some hang fire with it and he put down a group under six inches with it.

    The farthest I have shot it has been 800 yards two shot were on top of each other and had the rifle slip on my crappy rest I was using on the third shot still did about 5”

    It shoots right at 1 to 1 1/2 groups at 500 yards and that is were I have it sited in at and I make all the correction from that point. So far two elk two mule deer and five yotes all one shot kills all the big game was killed at over 500 yards

    Joe,
    Nice dogs. Would you think a 20-25 pound 338 allen kick very hard? Maybe in the neighborhood of a 300 mag.

    That would be a question better answered by Kirby than me.
