I have a nice new 338LM Surgeon Remedy that some ppl would find affordable.Anything I say to that question is liable to get me shot in the butt here....
I have 50 Beowolf, and Winchester Model 70 30.06, among several other, much lesser calibers. I want to round out my collection with a true, long range powerhouse.
Please, I've done a good bit of research, and narrowed it down to these two as my choices and if the guns were available, would already have one of the two. Yes, I would like something with a 26 to 28" barrel, at least.
Here. Chk out this auction.I've been looking for a budget, under 1500$ 338 RUM or 338 Lapua bolt action, and everything is sold out, and god only knows if or when the Remingtons will ever be built again.
Is there a good candidate for conversion to one of these calibers that I might find used? I would be happy with an MOA or slightly higher gun. I don't do competition nor extreme long range shooting.
They shoot well above their cost. Value of $5000 rifle -IF- you get it new or get one that’s been treated well. Nice thing bout them is many ppl buy them because they don’t go BOOM! They go KA-F*^%#€NG-BOOM and they WANT one. Kinda like when you are smitten by a beautiful woman. At first you have shinny new toy. You buy ammo. You shoot it a bit. Then you realize 9 times out of 10 you are shooting your 2000 yard beast at 300 yards. Then you wake to how much it costs to shoot it regularly so you don’t. Then you start shooting your 308 again. The Beast goes in the safe. And then one day you want the next shinny new rifle and the beast goes on gunbroker. The end.15 shots out of a Savage 112 lapua over the course of about 4 hours.
