    Just a teaser.

    The new APS Raptor LRSS is about ready for flight!!! Once thought to be a dead duck, she is breathing again.

    More to come, you will want to stay tuned for this one.....

    Keep us up to date and we'll start getting excited on our own.

    Kirby - I looked at the links geargrinder attached - sweet looking action. Pardon my ignorance on the question I am about to ask but here goes - is the smallest caliber that can be/should be built on that action the 338 lapua? Could it be an option for a 338 edge? Or would it be a better choice just to build the lapua?

    Please provide a little info...does "SS" stand for single shot (since the 2004 posts noted the originsl (current?) model is 4xx class SS)? Will it support the CheyTac-based AMs or does it continue the 700LA theme?

    Thanks.

    Kirby this is great news. I'm in for one (or however many my wallet can take). Also can it be setup for DBM system such as seekins?
