Barrett M98B .338 Lapua Magnum

223Rem, 308Win, 338 Lapua Mag

338 Lapua Magnum is a punchy round — 250gr bullet nominally leaves the muzzle at 3000fps, 300gr at 2700fps. My friends’ actual chronograph results are 2900fps with 300gr. In any case, it flies fast, flat and completely scrambles blocks of ordnance gelatin. 0.3-0.4MOA is typical of the rifles in this caliber. Unlike 50BMG, the rifles remain easily man-portable.

I borrowed this particular rifle from G4P for use as a photo prop.

This one comes with a very nice 6-24×50 Viper scope.

    Когда взял этот патрон в руки, прямо подумалось, что это патрон от ПТР 🙂
    Ну и стрелять из орудия под этот боеприпас – какой-то особый кайф 🙂

    I would love to get a rifle in that caliber.

    But hard to find in left-hand versions. So want a TRG-42 in that caliber, but the refuse to make one left-handed. Even asked about a custom one-off, the reply was no. 🙁

    What is the reason for the super-expensive ammo? Supply? Demand? Cost of materials involved? All of the above?
