Thanks guys!

Mr. Big, the Allen Mag is MUCH bigger! Based off the .408 chey-tac case, it can fling the 300 grain 338 cal bullets around 3300 fps. No need for a 300 Allen Mag, as you just can't get 30 cal bullets with the BC's the 338's have. Personally, I just don't have the experience or confidence to shoot beyond 800 yards- and that's just what the Allen Mags are designed to do. IMO, it's hard to beat the regular 300 RUM for the ranges I shoot.

You might just be surprised how affordable one of the customs can be though... I bought the rifle lightly used with Redding competition dies (worth $200 alone) and 2 boxes of Accubonds for $1200! There are deals on custom rigs to be had for sure if you keep your eyes open. The scope I also picked up very lightly used at substantial savings. The only thing I would have done differently if I had built it myself would be substituting a McMillan A5 stock for the HS stock on it, and would have gone with a 30 inch tube.

Wow!!! No way I would attempt that shot with my current shooting skills. Lots of practice needed for that one.

Good shooting.

Great shooting, congrats


If I had a bigger scope on my 300RUM, I would take that shot.

That is awesome! Congrats! I shoot targets the same way with the bipod except my rear beanbag is a 50 pound bag of corn lol I hope to someday hunt where shots like that are possible.

Good deal man. I hope everyone on here realizes just what it takes to pull off this kind of shot. I know you don't take it lightly and it takes a lot of preparation. Congratulations! That's better than a buck at close range to me.
