    Not new to shooting but this is my first custom rifle. I spent a decent length of time researching what I wanted and received plenty of advice from mates with more experience. After bouncing around on gunsmith options here, I settled on APRS in SA to build this one up and they did a fantastic job. This build is simply focused around the Berger 230 projectiles (and the 225 ELD-M as an alternative option, when it eventually becomes more available here). Initial plans were to have a 300WM with CIP length mags built for the same projectile(s), but selected the norma as it's a better option for that purpose.

    I already had the PMII, and due to its colour, selected a cerakote option that came close to it.

    Action: Stiller Tac 338 - 30MOA base
    Caliber: 300 Norma Magnum
    Barrel: Bartlein MTU - 28 inch, 9 twist
    Stock: Manners T4A
    DBM: Badger M5, CIP length
    Trigger: Rifle Basix
    Brake: APRS 3-Port
    Rings: AI 18MOA single piece

    It'll get used shooting it as far as I'm capable and some hunting work.

    Thanks mate, they did a good job.

    I haven't had a chance to shoot her yet, but will get to stretch her out, hopefully beyond 1800m in a few weeks.

    Shot out to 1224m this weekend. Hitting 2908fps with the 230 Berger at 84.5gr of retumbo. Shot just under a 4 inch group at this range, no load dev done yet though.
