    338 Lapua Ackley improved

    Well its finally ready to go to it's new home after an extremely long time due to circumstances outside my control



    Fluted UM True-Flite, 1-10, 28" barrel, T3 Terminator muzzle brake, McMillan Edge Tech A3, Defiance Deviant Lapua .750 bolt action, Timney trigger, extended mag box.



    It has one of my load development VX III LRs on it.



    The Defiance action is VERY nice.



    Shoots pretty good for a windy day, gusting 5-15 MPH today, best group shown, had a few with two in one hole & the wind or me taking the other



    Good things take time apparently, just generally not this much time...

    Looks bloody good! I'm sure the customer will be wrapped, if not, I'll look after it for him.

    Big bullet going quite fast leaves a big hole for it to bleed out.

    Looking at that I can understand why meat hunters favour the neck shot.
