Your chance town a fine piece of Kirby's Craftsmanship without the wait! I'm posting up a full 338 AX setup with SB scope w/ a Spuhr mount, 248 pieces of Petersen brass, and Dies.

Ordered this sucker in August of '18 and took ~2 years to get it. Life's changed and I'm reluctantly putting it up for sale.

Details as Follows:
-APS 31" LRSS in 338 Allen Xpress w/ McMillan A5, Medium Painkiller Brake, Calvin Elite Trigger w/179 rounds through it (full build list below)
-Schmidt Bender PMII LP P4FL-MOA 1/4MOA CCW DT/ST w/Tenebraex Caps (Box/Manual Included)
-SPUHR SP-4601 Mount, 34mm, Low (1.18" height), 6MIL/20.6MOA Inclination (total of 40MOA inclination built into the rifle)
-Accu-Tac FC4-G2 Bipod with both ARCA and Picatinny Clamps
-248 pieces of 338 Lapua-stamped brass (179 once-fired, 69 fire-formed/cleaned/annealed/ready to size) 1 drilled out and tapped for Hornady comparator, one sacrificed to the annealing gods
-Forster Ultra Micrometer Seating Die/ Newlon FL Sizing Die
-Plano Field Locker Hard Case 54"x15" interior dimensions, with foam cut for rifle.

Rifle Build Sheet:
-Complete APS Raptor LRSS rifle
-20 moa pinned full length stainless rail base
-31" Bartlein 338 1:9.4" twist LRSS Profile Barrel
-Adjustable Comb
-Medium PK brake
-LOP 13.75"
-McMillan Adjustable A5 in Urban Carbon Ambush
-Area 419 Short ARCALock segment on Fore End
-5 round detachable mag system
-Pillar bedding
-Timney Calvin Elite w/ flat shoe @ ~1lb
-Bead blast matte finish on barreled receiver
-Custom Newlon/Forster 338 AX loading die set
-250 formed 338 AX cases

Gun shoots absolutely spectacularly. Kirby's original load workup was
-300 gr berger Elite Hunters
-102.0 gr Ramshot magnum
-3.755” oal
-3105 fps average velocity

I worked up the same load and verified, but was struggling to find Ramshot Magnum and had plenty of N570 laying around so i worked up:
-300gr Berger Elite Hunters
-101.0gr Vihtavuori N570
-Fed GM215M
-2.930" CBTO
-3045 fps AV, 7 SD, 16 ES

I built this thing to be a rock solid rifle. I've taken it out to 2k a couple of times, and honestly with this thing at a mile, it's easy mode. I've put a nauseating amount of money and time into this setup, but my loss is your gain and you can get a sweet setup without a two year wait!

Price Dropped!***
Not sure where the market lies on these so we'll go with $8500 OBO for the whole setup. Don't want to part anything out until the rile is sold.
