i've been using the simple formula of dividing my old moa dope by 3.44 and it's been dead on at 200 and 400yards. haven't had a chance to test at other distances.

my 400yard was 7 moa on mark 4. i was doing 2 mills on my new scope at the same distance.

the scope did change my shooting style a little. scope sits much lower, and i end up tilting my head alot more.

Couple of your friends need to talk to Randy about your rifles..... The guy that went shooting at that class with the m1A and F250 truck...
If you do NOT put 25% or 50% dont remember how much he WILL not build you a rifle. So please relay this on to them.

PistolPete75
02-28-2008, 3:07 PM
he typically requires 1k to start the build. in my case, he ordered most of the parts before even asking me for the deposit. i think if he really knows your serious, he is a little more relaxed about when he gets the deposit.

I hope you kept a 308 around - the 338 isn't allowed at the N/S Shootout or most of my matches unless I have a paper only. They're steel killers. :eek:

Weak.. what y'all need is better steel!

338 is just for desert fun and whenever I can use it. 308 will always be my primary.. and 6.5 Grendel when semi is allowed :)

I also have a 300 win mag.. but that's just sitting there.. not sure what i'm going to do with it..

338 huh? Now you do you know that you will be cutting the stock up a good amount and will require bedding, right? Basicly one you build it, you will have to keep it together. I wish you the best when you shoot 3 dollers each time out of the end of your barrel. Im just wondering why you didnt go with 338-300 Ultra mag, 50fps faster and brass is CHEAP!
And the myth that 338 Lapua is an enhearently more accurate cartridge is busted! Its the shooter. The guys at SH are a little too much into that lapua, when Im gone with my 7 fad i hope to be ready for the 338-300 ultra mag. 350gr Wildcat bullets with an 1.0 bc.

Haha. Where do you get this stuff from?

The stock only needs the recoil lug area opened up and the skins trimmed a little. Though the stock can be used again for a standard Remington 700 LA, I would simply have to mill out the bedding and rebed. Only the rear of the lug area needs to be bedded.

Reloaded ammo will run about $1 a trigger pull.
300 gr SMK $.45
CCI LR MAG primer $.03
90 gr RL-25 $.20
Brass PER USE based on 10 reloads $.18

So to be more exact.. $.86 a trigger pull. Don't worry about it.. you were only off by 349% :rolleyes:

I don't think anyone here including myself claimed the the .338 is inherently more accurate. The only claim i'll make is that it can reach a long distance with good accuracy and energy.

But enough talk.. lets go shoot. Show all of us what you can do with your fancy new toys.

If im full of ****, then send your rifle to someone other then Randy because hes the one that says this stuff. We had a long talk last night about our rifles. I was talking about snipers hide for the accuracy stuff. I have bigger fish to fry, 10 ten page papers due next week. When summer comes around ill let you call me then.

"cypriss32", I Hope your not attempting to speak FOR Randy

I'd speak for one self then telling others not to go here/there unless the Man/Smith said himself.
