GUNWERKS VERDICT .338 RUM GUNWERKS CUSTOM AMMO, GUNWERKS REVIC TRIPOD, BT BIPOD, GUNWERKS HARD CASE, ANTI CANT++
FIREARM IS ZEROED AND TUNED AND HAD THE LRP LONG RANGE PACKAGE COMPLETED ALL BY GUNWERKS. PICK UP, LOAD UP, AND SHOOT! Ok confirm zero first..
1500 YARDS OUT OF THE BOX: Rifle has been tuned by Gunwerks to shoot over 1500 yards with the Gunwerks included installed certificated custom BT turret. That does not mean “hunt” at 1500 yards.. good to go hunting to 1000 yards, with a lot of practice and learning to call wind 1500 yards, with a spotter at a silhouette 2000 yards. The turret is numbered to 1500 yards on the first turret revolution; target at 850 yards, turn the turret to “8.5”. Target at 1200 yards, turn the turret to “12”.
WHY .338 RUM: Because we can use a 20″ barrel and hit at 1500 yards. The .338 Lapua needs a 26″ barrel while the RUM ballistics/statistics can match the Lapua. Shorter barrel = ease of operation, better ergonomics, simple to stick in an Eberlestock rifle pack.
Copied from JDC at Northwest Magnum: “In our opinions, based on firing plenty of rounds in favorable conditions from several rifles in both chamberings, we believe that the 338 Remington Ultra Magnum is considerably more accurate and more consistent than the 338 Lapua. At least one bullet manufacturer has stated that the .338 RUM is so accurate they are using it to test the quality of their own 338 bullets”.
GUNWERKS VERDICT: The Verdict is known as “The King of Configuration”. The stock is the most adjustable in the line with buttpad cant, buttpad elevation, adjustable comb height, NV rail ability, embedded sling receptacles, picatinny rail(s), swiss-arca rail(s) ad infinitum. This Verdict rifle with it’s 20″ Supermatch barrel is pure awesomeness.
HUNTING RIFLE WEIGHT/USE: This configuration is for over 90% of hunters and hunting applications when you want a rifle that will take down ALL North American game and shoot over 1000 yards with minimal training. The elk hunter whom is using an ATV or vehicle to spot and then stalk a mile or two. It is for the moose hunter in B.C. whom runs around with his guide on a snowmobile, looks for fresh tracks, then sets up an ambush in a meadow. It is for the moose hunter in Alaska whom hunts from a rifle box or stand. Yes they do Alex. These outfitters know where the natural funnels are and set up stands and have recorded 100% shot opportunity year after year. How about Brown Bear in Alaska? You do not hike at all. Cruise around in a skiff, spot a bruiser, shoot from the boat or ground upwind and sneak down a bit. Nuff said..
.338 RUM RECOIL: In this configuration less than a .300 Win Mag. This rifle has a Gunwerks muzzle brake and the recoil reducing Verdict stock. Long range all day course is a non issue.
OPTICS: Kahles premier K318i illuminated. No is not a 5-25 Alex. Sounds like I am making excuses for this configuration; in reality I am trying to educate and elucidate the uninformed and the misinformed. So no 5-25. This is a hunting rifle. At 3.5x magnification your FOV field of view is large enough to shoot a bison at 25 yards. With this scope at 3x a Cape Buffalo is in the FOV stem to stern at 17 yards. Huh.
25x MAGNIFICATION BAD BAD: At 25x bad things start to happen.. err have probably already happened! Parallax ie “mirage” is screwing your sight picture up. If you are a knowledgeable shooter you dial magnification down when this occurs. At 25x your sight picture (typically) on the animal will be bouncing meaning your reticle (crosshair) is moving all over the target meaning your confidence takes a crap meaning you jerk the trigger when you think the reticle will bounce where you want it meaning you wound an animal. Big no no. Again, an experienced shooter will dial down the magnification which will give the shooter a more “calming” and comprehensive sight picture which increases confidence which equals a more proficient shot. Hopefully.
GUNWERKS REVIC TRIPOD: Tripods have been to big and unwieldly to carry- until now. This tripod mounts the rifle in seconds and is rock rock steady. Packable at 19″ long and 4 lbs! Extends to 66 inches long and includes all needed hardware. The tripod attaches to the arca-swiss rail on the rifle in a couple seconds.
ATLAS BIPOD: BT47-LW17 PSR Atlas Bipod Tall with ADM 170-S Lever. Quick release mount pops on/off the forward picatinny rail as desired. Folds forward and or backward depending on your current application.
GUNWERKS/BARNES AMMUNITION: The Barnes Long-Range X Bullet (LRX) line is designed after the best-selling Tipped Triple-Shock X Bullet. The LRX bullet design increases Ballistic Coefficient values by increasing ogive and boat tail lengths to improve the bullets’ long-range ballistic performance. For the hunter who is confident in long-range hunting, the LRX will terminate game at both short and long distance. Polymer tip initiates expansion, causing the nose cavity to open instantly on contact doubling the bullet’s original diameter while creating four cutting petals that wreak extensive internal damage. Exceptional performance means a clean, quick kill. 100% Gunwerks ammunition, 8 boxes = 160 rounds.
GUNWERKS HARD CASE: The Gunwerks “Slim-Line” hard case is not included in an order; it is $315 extra and has the apropos cut outs and configuration to hold the rifle and accessories.
COST/BUILD: Order from Gunwerks with 5-6 month wait time for $16,104 screenshot is in the pictures. $16,104 with no ammo no hard case nothing. Hard case is $315, Revic tripod is $525 shipped, Atlas duofold tall bipod is $350. Gunwerks ammunition is $175 per box 8 boxes = $1400. Total to build your own cracks $18,694.
