     OTHER DESCRIPTION  My personal choice for a long range hunting rifle. This caliber has no match for downrange accuracy and energy delivery - run the ballistics. Easily out performs a .338 Lapua.The JP brake takes all the bite out of the recoil. This rifle has taken numerous animals at over 500 yds., including feral pigs, coyotes, etc.
