The Verdict is our big 338. We like the Lapua, or the new 338 Norma. The big cartridge case requires a bigger action. We developed the LR-1500 action to accommodate the Lapua case. The standard stock platform is the McMillan A5 with adjustable check piece and length of pull. The barrel contour is heavy. The muzzle break is directional and indexed to port the gases to the side. This reduces the dust and debris kicked up by a traditional radially ported muzzle break. Five cartridges are available to shoot from the Accuracy International magazine box.
The standard scope configuration when you add the Long Range Package is the 5.5-22X50 G7 by Nightforce. All Nightforce scopes are available as options. Compensation at a mile becomes complex. We shoot the system to break it in, validate accuracy, and develop a ballistic profile describing the True Ballistic Coefficient and Muzzle Velocity. We provide a G7 Ballistic Turret that features calibration in yards to match distance to target and our unique second calibration in MOA. Use the G7 Long Range Ballistic Calculator on a Windows Mobile Handheld or Ipod/Iphone to calculate your exact solution including Coriolis and Spin Drift.
