Test Fired Our 338 Lapua Today...WOW

Postby Thunder Ammo » Mon 15 Jun, 2009 6:57 pm

I am very impressed with this round. Very accurate, very nice to shoot.
I really did think it would kick worse than it does. It is for sure one of my keepers.
I can not wait to get out to the long range and see what it will do at 1000+ yards.

Congrats on the new 98B - I just recieved mine as well - You did beat me to the range - I am still waiting to get my optics installed and bore sighted - I won't get to that for about a week - I was interested in what optics you have on your rifle - What ammunition are you using - Once more - Congrats on the new rifle

The scope is a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25 ER/T.
The ammo is mine. Hornady brass, US869 powder, and I had Dave at Lehigh make me a bunch of 230gr solid brass bullets.
Yes it is a wonderful round.

Today a friend's of mine said that the Bignami Italian importer is working for Italian people about this rifle...... will be mine next year.....

this year I'm out of my budget.... after an AI in .338, a HS precision HTR in .308, a BORS and a S&B 5-25x 56.... :?
