    Anybody got any experience with them?

    I have a possible trade in the works. So might end up with one.

    Dunno if I should be excited or frightened.

    The one here in question is all but NIB, 200 rounds fired, and its fitted with one of milletts top of the line 56mm scopes. Its also got a good brake on it. I dont really fear the recoil. Ive shot worse. Im more scared of the high priced reloading components. I prolly wont shoot it much. But it would be cool to have THE big .338 for that one 'rainy day'

    I was at a local range a few years ago and a guy set up next to me with one of the .338's topped with a huge Swazkorski(sp) scope and a chrono. Shooting at 100 yards. Looked odd, but he was just working up some loads and needed the chrono stats. Awesome set up. When he finished with that one, he brought out another one................They are amazing.

    Forgot to add that I was shooting my .22LR CZ452. We looked like the "Odd Couple".............

    youre tellin me. One of the best rounds ever developed.. period. I have wanted one since I first learned about it. I just had always envisioned myself getting a savage 110BA, being the savage nut that I am. Maybe I could trade the Sako for one if i dont like the Sako.. :)

    I don't think you could go wrong with the Sako.....and the round is awesome for long range stuff.

    Technically. Yes. I have a Sako. Its an M39 sneak rifle made by Sako. But never a top notch Sako hunting rig.

    E-X-C-I-T-E-D-! Go for it and please let us know if you acquire it and then post photos. You are one lucky feller. An opportunity like you have is extremely rare.

    My experience/knowledge with them is only what I've seen in video games. [​IMG] And they do make them seem pretty bad ass. It would want one just for the "awe" and "wow" factor of it. I say go for it. I doubt it will lose value either, just in case somehow you find something about it you don't like.

    no real awe factor , just a well thought out and operable rifle thats pretty good outta the box , but made to last , you'll have these in 100 years unless your real rich and can shoot em like a .22

    but with the ability to reach out and touch something ( terminally ) at 1200 - 1600meters if your up to it

    I think the other guys are thinkin of the TRG-42 Jack. Thats a 4500 dollar rig!.. The one Im lookin at looks like a well made hunting rifle. Damn barrel is a good mile long too. I have a couple pics the guy sent me.
