New Little Blaster

Just thought I'd share my newest addition to the Armory, this GA Precision custom .338 Federal. I bought it used, 200ish rounds through it, and sent it back to GA Precision to have them restock it into a Manners Elite EH-6, and cerakote it in Sniper Grey. It sports a 20 inch barrel and weighs in a just a tick less than 7.5 pounds. Pretty excited to start up load developement and get it scoped! Thanks for looking!

That`s a nice looking rifle you have there, GA Precision did a nice job on your stock.

The stock is the Manners with the molded in Camo pattern. My other GA Precision rifle (.300 WSM) is a painted Manners Superlight. The finish is tough on the painted stocks, but not nearly as tough as the stocks with the colors molded directly into them.

Here's that gun, which no longer wears the Swarovski X5 (waiting on my Vortex AMG right now).

Nice rifle! What bullet do you plan on using in it?

Good luck, Tony

I don't know...been juggling bullet ideas in my mind over the past few days. Narrowed down to either the 185 grain Barnes t-tsx, or a 200 grain Nosler Accubond. I think both would be a good all around bullet for the caliber. The gun came with like 12 boxes of 200 grain Federal Fusion bullets, so I'll definitely shoot those just to see how they work first. If they shoot into 1/2 inch, I'll be using those! If not, I'll be selling those off and handloading for it.
