    I took the new T3 338 (aka Clubber) out this evening and tossed a few downrange. Gotta tell you she roots ya pretty good. Nothing I can't live with. Weighing in at 7 3/4 lbs,I think I'm going to like it from a carry aspect. She bests my 300 Ultra M700 by a solid 2lbs. I like that!

    I started with some 225 Hornadys to rub the burrs out of her. I like the 100 cnt box of bullets. Old fashioned I guess. The first 3 shots were 74gr of RL19 and Fed 215 primers. Number 1 went high left and a few adjustments printed 2 more low and center. Switching to 74.5gr of the same powder and primer,and a few clicks "up",we put the 3 in the bottom of the 10 ring. Promising first outing for a light weight magnum.

    For the money they are a great rifle, I have one in 300wsm and love it even with funky recoil lug, they usually shoot pretty good and smooth like no other.
