I have been thinking about getting a .338 Lapua Mag from Armalite does anyone on here have any dealings with them good/bad ? I do have the room to kinda stretch its legs on my farm so that is not an issue with the gun.
Yeah thats what I was thinking it still carries a good deal of long range punch but is about half the price of a 50 and still cheaper to shoot. I had thought about maybe a 416 but bleh I have not found any place other then Barrett that sells them and the gun is higher then a 50 according to Barrett's site. I just have not had any dealings with the 338 and its not something you see everyday around here.
The rounds are kinda pricey I guess but since I have been a long time duck and turkey hunter I get used to being bent over when I buy ammo .
Still trying to find a new gun that is not a custom build. It seams the AR30 has been out of stock and back ordered for a couple of years now, I did manage to find Remington makes one in the 700 series but it is labeled as a M24A3 and is found only in their military section so I guess I am SOL on that one too.
I have a 338 Winchester mag and it's accuracy is second only to my 22-250 despite the recoil. Actually the recoil is not that bad because it is more of a strong push than a sharp blow. I prefer to shoot it over my 300 Winchester mag that just flat hurts to shoot off a bench...
