ACCESSORIES/AMMUNITION:  (((1)))  BT industries Atlas bipod duofold model BT47-LW17 PSR Atlas Bipod: Tall with ADM 170-S Lever (quick release mount). This bipod allows you to extend the legs for your uphill/downhill shots and is the tall version on a quick release. Fold the legs forward or backward (duofold).  (((2))) Ammunition is FACTORY ammo readily available in .338 Win Mag. Ships with 5 boxes of Barnes VOR-TX 225 grain ammunition. “VOR-TX® is precision ammunition loaded with the deadliest bullets on the planet. Barnes, the leader in bullet innovation offers hunters the ultimate in accuracy, terminal performance and handloaded precision in a factory loaded round. Offering double-diameter expansion, maximum weight retention and excellent accuracy, the TSX provides maximum tissue and bone destruction, pass-through penetration and devastating energy transfer.” (((3))) Eberlestock rifle pack. You do not really hunt with a sling.. do you? Never. Rifle is in your custom Eberlestock pack which cuts perceived weigh to squat. If in a high opportunity environment, sure, walk with the rifle in your hands.. never slung. Waste of time. Rifle slips from the pack in seconds and the pack is utilized to shoot off of. If I am only going out for a couple hours I still ALWAYS take my pack. Stuffed with a pillow. To shoot off of!

BUILD COST: Rifle only cost is in the invoice/itemization. Dealer cost. What Rockegroup paid for the RIFLE ONLY. $6900 shipped as described and equipped; NO dealer profit. Add $515 for the dealer = $7415. Note the invoice is discounted $200 since we have bought 5 rifles from HCR. You do NOT get that discount so in reality we are charging you $315 for our time and expertise and patience! Then find a premier Z8i 2-16 x 50 illuminated Swarovski $3200 Optics Planet and everywhere else. Swarovski custom turret cap is on the invoice but the actual Ballistic Turret you need to order separate form Swaro (in the Z8i line) another $200. One box of Barnes VOR-TX 225 grain TSX is $60 @ Midway x 5 boxes  = $300. Atlas bipod as described $340 on their site. Eberlestock rifle pack $282. Total to build 11,737 and about 8 months. 

BACK STORY: I called Matt Bettersworth at Hill country Rifles and we have spoken extensively on the phone to get these put together. After carrying a .300 Win Mag for years I switched to a .300 Jarrett for another decade. Got caught up in the Gunwerks 1000 yard shooter with all the new cartridges we all just gotta have; ELD and VLD bullets in the latest greatest fastest long distance 1000 yard no 1500 yard no 1800 yard barrel burners. Problem is I will not shoot at an Elk at 1000 yards. Nor 800 yards. Maybe 700 yards if conditions are perfect cause I cannot call wind well enough to insure a one shot kill. Frankly few in the world can past 1000 yards in ONE shot. Takes more than one and typically a spotter. But still, was happy with Gunwerks custom made long range rifles and Swarovski scopes all tuned all hand made all with ballistic turrets and all dialed in. Then things started to change at Gunwerks; no more Swarovski scopes (for reasons we will not go into), no more Nightforce scopes; replaced with Leupold and Kahles scopes for the same price. Bullets for their rifles are Match bullets, not “hunting” bullets which seems to work fine for them but they are proprietary Gunwerks loads not readily available on the market. Still love Gunwerks. They have quadrupled their production (plus) and turned into a machine that spews out rifles to support their monthly nut, but they miss a couple boxes in certain areas. To be clear I still love Gunwerks; Aaron built me a custom 18″ SAUM which is an enviable wondrous piece with a nice Kahles on it. No problems so calm down.. anyhoo, so after shooting and hunting with these VLD and ELD and .300 latest greatest PRC discovered they are simply chasing the .338 Lapua (in larger cartridges). Since we are big on Elk, Moose, Bear why not build a long range lighter weight .338 Lapua with ammo available worldwide? Build the king? Tried with Gunwerks in the Verdict. Too big to lug around. Called Matt and he has built four .338 Lapua rifles for us all under 12 lbs cocked and locked scoped and tuned. Superior Swaro optics all shoot under 1/2″. Perfect! From 50 feet to 1500 yards will kill all North American game no issues.. but, um, gee like I said I do not shoot 1500 yards. Called Matt again and told him my ideal rifle has a 20 to 22 ” barrel, is Psycho accurate, 10 lbs ish, kills Elk to 800 yards. And I want one stop shots in a 30 or 33 caliber rifle which shoots factory ammunition with recoil of a .308. Told him to build me some .338 Lapuas with 22 inch barrels. He refused. Said no no no. Gotta have 26 inch barrels for the powder burn, accuracy, etc. Argued with him ( a little) as did not care if all the powder was burned it was a dedicated platform for 800 yards or under NOT 1500 yards. He told me the .338 Win Mag in a 22 inch barrel will burn all the powder and the lethality to 900 yards would be stunning on large game. Told him I did not want a cartridge older than me. He said she said new powders, new bullets = new ballistics, energy, distance, lethality. Said ok.. build me a few. Well. Gosh. Psycho success. Portable rifles with 22 inch barrels that have the ability to shoot one inch groups at 500 yards, weigh 10lbs ish, shoot FACTORY hunting ammunition, recoil on par with .308. Dreams do come true!
