The .338 LAPUA: Is It Really The Ultimate Sniper Caliber…Let’s See For Ourselves Shall We
As technology advances and new and exciting things are being invented on almost a daily basis, it’s interesting to see advances in firearms (at least to me anyway). But to make the claim of being the “ultimate” in anything, that’s a pretty bold thing to say right? So, is the .338 LAPUA really the “Ultimate Sniper Caliber” ? Well, since the claim was made, let’s see just how well the .338 Lapua Magnum does under pressure. Using the AR-30A1 .338 LAPUA TARGET RIFLE, our intrepid host, does his best to see if the claim made was just idle boast, or true to form. One of the ultimate challenges for any rifle, is to see if it will save a man from being lynched.
AR-30A1™ .338 LAPUA TARGET RIFLE
On the surface, the AR-30A1™ bears a resemblance to its predecessor, the AR-30. The AR-30A1’s muzzle brake ensures soft recoil in spite of the .338 Lapua Magnum’s incredible power. Outstanding accuracy and balanced weight complement the enhanced ergonomics, adaptability, and reliability of the AR-30A1.
