2 of my friends just ordered 338 lapua sako's . they paid i think about 3,000.00 for just the gun. they keep telling me that i need one also. but for that kind of money i think i could get a custom built gun to out shoot it. or am i just kidding myself. has anyone one on here shot one of these?? are they really that great?? I have been putting some money back so i could get a 338 edge from Shawn . i just need to figure out all of the options. This is truely the best web place to be. all of you on here are so helpful to everyone. even the negative usually has a positive side. thanks guys.
