RIFLE: From Hill Country Rifles website: “This is the ultimate long range hunting rifle. We have combined the unmatched accuracy of the 338 Lapua with the “Our Rifleman” stock and a Carbon Fiber Supermatch barrel. This rifle weighs 9 to 9.5 pounds. Built on a Defiance Machine Deviant Hunter action with one piece fluted bolt, M-16 style extractor, Trigger Tech trigger with perfectly a fit prone position muzzle brake. Recoil is similar to a 308 Winchester! The rifle is fully Accurized into a our Rifleman stock with 1″ Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad. You will have all the energy you need for any ethical long range hunting shot and you have plenty of rifle and accuracy for plates out to 2000 yards! Fun to play with and to hunt with. We guarantee 3-shot 1/2 MOA groups at 100 yards with recommended factory ammunition”. Did we say this rifles shoots .282″ yet?
Every manufacturer has tried and continues to try to put .338 Lapua in a smaller, lighter, less recoiling package; 33 Nosler, .300 PRC, .338 Win and on and on. Some have had and continue to have moderate success, but NONE have yet to actually beat the .338 Lapua ballistically. Rather than try to mimic the .338 Lapua why not build an awesome .338 Lapua hunting platform utilizing all of the current state of the art manufacturing resources that weighs the same OR LESS than these other copycats and recoils the same or less? Hill Country Rifles succeeds in hand building a scoped .338 Lapua hunting rifle that weighs in at 9 1/2 lbs in .338 Lapua! That is less than most 300 PRC rifles, 30 Nosler rifles, definitely less than the .300 and .338 RUM.. and hey let’s not forget that you do not actually carry your hunting rifle right? It is in an Eberlestock pack certainly not slung over your shoulder. Even on a day hunt I carry the full size Eberlestock pack with a pillow in it along with other minor items. The pack is what you shoot off of. Right? Ok maybe a tripod or bipod but a pack is sturdier and “locks” the rifle up tighter than either of the aforementioned. As an aside these were ordered with a custom picatinny rail specifically for a bipod! Last thought; keep in mind .338 Lapua ammunition is available in every country in the known world to include Ecuador, Bahamas, Sri Lanka, et al. Oh, and is, has been, and will continue to be a premier U.S. Government sniper round for the next 20+ years.
OPTICS: Rifle is scoped with the premier Swarovski X5i 3.5-18×50 P 1/4 MOA L 4WX-I+ illuminated with a ballistic turret direct from Swarovski which programmed and blueprinted this rifle with Hill Country Rifles and 270 Grain Hornady ELDX Precision Hunter ammunition. Swarovski subsequently built a custom turret for this specific platform which enables you to dial past 1500 yards using this marked turret. Target at 850 yards? Put the turret on 8.5. Target at 425 yards? Put on 4.25. Target at 1150 yards? Turn the turret to “11.5” and practice a lot!! You are going to really learn how to read wind if’n you are going to smack em at 1100 yards.. unless you crack em at dawn!
