    From Left to Right 338 Raptor, 300 Allen Express, 7mm Rem Mag

    Back up sale fell through......

    I have a like new 338 Raptor I just received from Kirby last week. This is a legit Mile + gun! I ordered this rifle over 2 years ago. Reason for selling is I have some bills I need to pay. I have fired it 20 times since I received it. Kirby said these rifles sweet spot is usually in the 3,125-3,150 range so I worked up a load using Hodgdon H50BMG. I started at 123 grains zeroing the rifle at 100 yards and worked up until velocity was in the 3,150 range with a 300gr Berger. At 127grs my Lab Radar read 3,140 so I loaded up a handful and shot at a rock behind my house thats 1,010 yards away. I shot a three shot group on the rock that measured around 1/3 moa using my reticle in my scope. I haven't had a chance to stretch it out further. Here are the specs on the gun.

    Work order list:

    Chambering: 338 Raptor

    Receiver: APS Raptor, Single shot, 20 moa pinned rail, pinned recoil lug, lapua bolt face, RHB, RHE

    Stock: McMillan A5 stock, 13.5” LOP, 34%black 33% medium tan 33% white, 1” decelerator pad, pillars installed, standard fill, 4” fore end rail, standard fill

    Barrel: Bartlein SS, LRSS contour, 9 twist 5R, 30” finish, dual flute pattern

    Muzzle Brake: medium PK

    Trigger: jewell

    Magazine Box/Floorplate: single shot

    Finish: bead blast matte finish

    Weight Approx 14lbs bare

    Comes with 100 pieces of Bertram Brass, approximately 75 Berger 300gr Elite Hunters, FL Dies. Currently it has a Vortex Gun II Razor 4.5-27x56MM scope on it sitting in ARC 34mm rings. I have over $5,700 in just the gun. You can buy it today for less than I have in it with no wait and have a legit 2,000 yard gun built by one of the best smiths in the country.

    Rifle, brass, dies shipped and insured to your FFL $5,850 firm

    Still available! This thing is ready to go for 1,000+ long range hunting. Load data is basically done and Ill throw in 6lbs of H50BMG powder! The 338 Raptor is about as big of case as you can go before stepping up to the cheytac class cases. Get it now with no wait!
