I had a chance buy this one a bunch of years back. The smith had built three. Two for some SWAT outfit and the third for himself ... just 'cause he was building some. He played with it for a while and then I bought it. Here are some pics. I have it set up with a Redfield Palma rear and Redfield front sight as well as a Horus Vision 4-16 X 50. This is a BIG, HEAVY rifle and because of that, the recoil isn't much over a "stout" .30-06.

I certainly cannot shoot up to the rifle's potential ... but that didn't stop me from buying it. Once a year, 50 rounds, it's fun, but too many guns ... never enough time!

First pic, 5 rounds of .338 Lapua next to a 7.62 X 51 NATO for comparison.
