The Verdict

The Verdict is our big gun.  

We’ve rendered the answer for the big 338’s. At 15 pounds, its heavy, but the perfect platform for the 338 Lapua or 338 Norma. This gun features the LR-1500 action with a larger diameter bolt and action body specifically configured to accommodate the larger Lapua bolt face. This system features a tactical style bottom metal, compatible with Accuracy International(AI) magazines. The fully adjustable stock can be tuned to fit your body and shooting position exactly. With the weight, proper stock adjustment and the big directional break, recoil is mild, even with the 300 grain Lapua load. 

With the Verdict you will be rewarded with accuracy to spare at a mile.

The System

At Gunwerks we build shooting systems. The Verdict is a machine. Heavy. Steady. Ready to make short work of mile-long shots. This kind of distance requires a setup and ballistic calibration that is complete, no short cuts and no compromises. At Gunwerks, shooting system means we do the work for for you to deliver out-of-the-box performance.

The Design

With the Verdict, we put together the classic long range rig. When you think long range, the Mcmillan vertical grip is the standard. It’s been around a long time. We chose the adjustable Mcmillan A5 as our platform. The heavy taper barrel and detachable magazine system puts the overall weight just under 15 pounds with a big Nightforce optic on top.

The Shot

Ultra long range. Tactical competition. One mile shot. The Verdict has capability. It’s not designed to be your portable hunting rifle. Five miles into the back country it’s not, but setup overlooking a massive canyon it IS. It is the perfect gun for the shot. Turn off the steel, and wrap the barrel in carbon, and it becomes a tactical competition champ.

With most of our long range cartridges, the G7 ballistic turret is calibrated to nearly 1400 yards. When you want to shoot farther, break out the ballistic calculator and use the bottom row of MOA numbers to adjust more than two revolutions.

The Action

The LR1500 action is 0.050 inch larger in diameter and 0.465 inches longer to accommodate the massive 338 Lapua case. Even the bolt is bigger at 0.750 inches in diameter.

A Rifle Stock dedicated for shooting prone will be different than an all around rifle stock. Having adjustments for comb height and length of pull will get a stock perfectly fit to your physique and shooting style.  

Bedding Chassis

The other guys are still using plastic to fix machining errors. We don’t bed our rifles. Our bedding chassis precisely secures the action in a machined V rail configuration.

Detachable Magazine

The AI magazine box system is the industry standard for precision shooting. Choose this option for tactical match competitions or to add the convenience of a detachable magazine box with 5 and 10 round capacity options.

VLD Ammunition

VLD stands for Very Low Drag. Our ammunition uses bullets with VLD profiles to get the ultimate performance at extreme distance. Namely, low wind deflection, increased velocity downrange, and less drop.

CNC MFG/ Engineering

Quality control starts with an idea that becomes a design. That design needs to be fully documented with prints and tolerances for error. When the part is machined, its checked against the print.

Confidence to make a long elk shot!

I had ordered a .338LM to be ready to shoot last Sept. '15. I went to the beginner and the advanced shooting classes all in one week. I was a little concerned about the .338 for ELK hunting, but knew it had the distance I wanted and needed at almost 70. It shot and felt great! It is a part of a shooting system. Being from Florida , a 200 yard shot is long. The first day of class we did a "400 yd. chip shot" . We Bulls eyed that and went on to 600 , 800 , and 1000 Bulls!! I ended up with a 5" group at 1,300 in the wind. I am very impressed with their system, and now I have the confidence to make a long Elk shot !!!
