    Thanks for the info I have been wondering how well that rifle shoots.

    not bad at all. SO I take it the break is pretty effective.

    Whoops forgot he shot it from a lead sled. But the brake is very effective. It feels like a 308 win.

    My little brother Jim has almost the identical rig that shoots about the same.

    Great choice for a factory .338L.

    Congrats you obviously got a good one.

    Very good shooting there too.

    When my dad gets back from his black bear hunt id like to stretch it out a little farther. Probably start at 500 and work our way out. The only problem is the wind NEVER stops here in sw north dakota

    I've spent a lot of time just south of you in the Timberlake SD area and I can attest to that fact.

    It just makes you a better shooter.

    i want to do some drop tests to figure out the BC of the Lrx. it is advertised at .667 but i think it is going to be a little higher than that

    Great shooting! I was thinking about one of these in the .338...that's about what I would expect. Nice to see they can keep up.
