This was my first long range rig bought in 2006. It has served me well and is an absolute hammer at long range. This should not be confused with the 270 AM, which is based on the 300 RUM case. The 277 AM uses the 338 Lapua Mag as its parent case. Here's the specs on the rifle:

* Rem 700 action trued and blueprinted. Comes with BDL bottom metal, colyer spring, but no box magazine as this rifle is a single shot. Follower has been glued to bottom of action. Can easily be turned into repeater.

* Lilja #5 Contour SS .277 cal barrel with 1:8" twist to stabilize the long 195 gr. bullets. Length measures 28.5" from muzzle to barrel lug.

* Defensive Edge 3 port muzzle brake

* Oversized Tubb barrel lug

* Kepplinger single set trigger. Approx. 2.5 lbs straight pull; under 1 lb when set

* 20 MOA base (I believe Seekins - it is quality)

* Tactical bolt knob

* Cerakoted in graphite black

All work was done by Kirby Allen, with the exception of the bolt knob (Phoenix Custom Rifles) and the Cerakote.

There have been a total of 490 documented rounds down the tube. This rifle sends the 195 gr. Wildcat hBN treated bullet (est .735 BC) downrange at 3,125 fps. 15 MOA dial up for 900 yds. It also shoots the 170 gr. Matrix or 170 gr. Hybrid Berger (est .70 BC) at 3,225 fps - mild load. Both loads will group between .75 to.50 MOA when you do your part.

When this barrel has finally been shot out, you can spin on any 338 Lapua based cartridge with this action.

Package includes:
1) complete barreled action (incl trigger, 20 MOA rail, bottom metal & brake)
2) custom three die set (pic only shows 2, but there are three); all necessary bushings to take neck down from 338 to 277; and shell holder.
3) 70 formed Lapua brass with anywhere from 4 to 10 firings. (I have been getting 14-16 firings from a case with proper annealing.)
4) Approx. 180 count Wildcat 195 gr. bullets

Asking price for everything is $1,650 shipped to FFL of your choice. Barreled action & die set will ship in hard case. Brass and bullets will ship directly to buyer in separate box.

Please note: HS Precision rifle stock shown in pic is not included in package, but is an option that can be added for $225.

az,

I'd consider that a heck of a deal for someone.

From your velocities I'd definitely say that you haven't pushed her very hard at all.

If it is continued to be used strictly for taking game there's probably a couple of generations of barrel life remaining.

Kirby built my 270 AM about the same time as yours was built. I'm well into my second barrel but think I have discovered a way to greatly extend barrel life We'll see in the next couple of weeks.

Someone will be a lucky fella....

Re: 277 Allen Magnum Barreled Action w/Extras

Thanks for the kind words, Roy. She is a great rifle.

Several members have asked about possible trades. So I have tried to come up with some items I could use to help someone leverage themselves into thus great rig:

Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 with either the MOAR-T or NP-R1 reticle
Sightron SIII 6-24x50 MOA reticle
338 Lapua brass (Lapua mfg.)
Lasermax unimax IR rail mount laser

Lots of interest, but no takers yet. Need to move this one.

If I didn't already have such an animal I'd jump on this one.

Any cartridge that uses Lapua brass is a couple of notches above anything that doesn't. Which is something I have certainly learned since using up 16 pounds of Remmy brass since 2006 in mine.

This pencils out to be around 2000 round of pretty much extreme magnum loads making lil' rocks out of larger rocks from 500 to 1500 yards or so. Learn'd a ton about the ins and outs of LR shooting.

Worth every minute!!!
