The complete rifle weighs in at about 29.5lbs. It is "supposed/capable" of shooting 1.5 MOA groups at 1000 yards. The magazine holds 5 rounds and it kicks about like a 12 gauge shot gun.... Not too bad over all. Just keep your mouth closed when you fire or the back blast will force air through your nose and eyes!!

Nice. Long range is lots of fun. .338 Lapua here, in a 110BA.

Uh, is that a standard AR lower? If so, where does the mag go? It seems to me a 50 BMG would never fit up the AR mag well.....

It's a POF multi caliber lower. If you are not familiar or haven't seen one in person they are nearly double the wall thickness of a normal AR lower.
The magazine is a side mount. If you look closely on the picture you can see. I will take a picture tonight so you can get a better look.
In addition I took a case hardened steel promag 5 round 5.56 case shaved it down and filled it with two-part 80A shore polyurethane for recoil absorption.

Very nice! I like the 338 as well... Maybe if I when the lottery I will get one!
Do you reload your 338 cartridges?

Of course. We hand load most everything we shoot, other than 7.62x39. Quality components arent cheap, but you can get great results. The Lapua cases last alot longer than the others, higher price tho. Normally shooting 250g Combined Techs.
