Shooting Video & Chronograph Results of .338 Federal 8" Short Barrel Rifle

Alrighty fellers its been a while since i last visited here but i have a little treat for you guys to watch.I have finish building my .338 Federal AR10 Pattern SBR rifle and i have chronographed it with some pretty interesting results.. Shooting a few of the Federal Factory 180gr Accubond Nosler Ballistic tips i was clocking in around 2206fps-2242fps and shooting some of the American Eagle 185gr soft point factory ammo i was getting around 2097fps-2198fps...I still have some more testing to do with some lighter loads such as the Barnes 160gr ballistic tips....I have uploaded a video for you guys on all documented chronographed results of my 8" .338 Federal SBR ..Please leave comments and i Hope you enjoy.

Interesting. Similar velocity to 7.62x39mm with 50% more weight. I've thought it would be cool to do an FAL in .338 Federal, an SBR OSW pattern would be interesting

Not my cup of tea, but thanks for the demonstration!

Thanx for looking.. That is exactly what i wanted to accomplish..A compact AR10 that is able to match the velocities of a full length 16" AK47 but able to throw a bigger and heavier bullet at 1/2 the barrel length with more energy on target
