A little crazy, but a lot of fun....
Today I had the time to run out to Mac's Gunworks and shoot his new creation.
Put 25 rounds through it, from the prone position, with my typical one hand hold.
Lawton action, McRee stock, McGowen barrel, Lawton picatinny rail, Mac brake, Cerakote camo, Vortex Razor HD 5-20 Scope, Vortex Rings.  All the work was done by Chuck McIntosh.  The cartridge is one of Dave Viers.  Take a 408 Chey-Tac and partially neck it down to .375 and make a false shoulder, fireform it and you have a 375 Snipe-Tac.  Jamison brass, 150 grains of H-50BMG, and a 370 grain Rocky Mountain bullet.  What a cool combination.



223 Rem, 338 AX (338 Lapua Improved), 375 Snipe-Tac, 243 Winchester

There is an optical illusion that makes it look like that Razor HD is off-center of the bore.

Wild rig ... looks like fun.

Haven't grouped it yet.
Was just seeing how I could handle it, sighted it in @ 300 and smacked some steel at 400.  Just guessing since we have not chronographed it.

Both have made some pretty wild claims of the b.c.'s of their bullets. Have you found their numbers to be anywhere near the truth?

Have not done the work yet to either confirm or deny those BC's.
Time will tell for sure though.

This specialty handgun is the result of a pooling of a number of resources to try something that has never been done before.
So, my out-of-pocket expense has been a whole lot less than normal.
There is an article forthcoming on this giant.
The optics are on a "borrowed status"-not mine.

have not weighed it yet, but guessing around 20 pounds.
barrel length is 20 inches.  Going to go with 18, but knew we could cut it back if we wanted to later on, but adding length would be somewhat complicatedWink
