    For sale: 338 Lunatic

    Got some other projects on the go, so something has to go unfortunately...

    338 Lunatic is based off the 408 Cheytac case, necked down, shortened and improved. I am running a 300gr projectile at just under 3,300fps in this. Weight is around 18.5lb all up (depending on your choice of scope and rings)

    Built by NZ Hunter, with following specs:
    Barnard P Chey Action, nickel coated. Barnard trigger, Barnard Rail, Barnard V-block bedding system
    True Flite Ultra Match barrel. Fluted, 32 inch 1 in 10 SG. Custom 7075 anodised brake
    McMillan A5 Edge stock with Defensive Edge adjustable cheekrest
    Custom die set (Full length bushing die & Redding Competition Seater)
    45 formed cases, custom loading block and ammo cases

    Has fired approx 250 rounds (I will get an exact round count) using US869 powder exclusively (easier on the barrel than other slow burning powder). Will come with load data for 300gr hybrids (what I'm running now). Also have data for 300gr SMK's if you prefer.

    I'll get some photos up tonight.

    Wanting $5,250 for it, excluding scope and rings but inclusive of all that's listed above.

    Remaining 300gr Hybrids will also be available for purchase (new box of 250 plus part box - that I need to count to establish exact round count)
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    I can't edit my 1st post now, but the photos are below. One (blurred) photo shows a bit of anodizing missing from brake, other than that its in very good condition overall (its been a hunting gun not a range queen...). Photo of lunatic round next to 17hmr. SCOPE & RINGS/MOUNT NOT INCLUDED. Round count is 215, 128 smk's & 87 hybrids.

    Bump, consider trades on a nice AR15 or custom medium caliber rifles (like 243ai, 6 or 6.5x47L, 6BR etc) suitable for LR varminting etc

    Bump, $5k for a forum member, or trades considered as detailed above. Custom bag also comes with it (too long for readily available bags) which cost me $200. Dies are $700 to buy, and several hundred $'s of brass, loading blocks and ammo cases all included. Makes rifle pretty cheap for what it is...
