What weighs 15 pounds, kicks like a .22-250, has as much energy at 800 yards as the .308 has at the muzzle, and can reliably hit man-sized targets at more than 2000 yards? Usually, the answer would’ve been nothing. As of 2008 however, there’s an answer! It’s emerged in the form of a .338 rifle, the .338 Xtreme Tactical, and its companion cartridge the .338 Xtreme, both of which are manufactured by Xtreme Machining.

olan.jpgThe .338 Xtreme Tactical is the result of a collaboration of a number of individuals skilled in long-range shooting, gun building and cartridge design. The prime movers behind the system were Olan London, a ballistic experimenter and successful competitor in 1000-yard benchrest and .50-caliber competition, and Bob Zelenky, master machinist and proprietor of Xtreme Machining and a skilled long-range shooter in his own right.

    I want to know where a person can purchase the Canadian .338 military sniper rifle that shoots at 3500 feet with deadly accuracy? Where can a person legally fire the thing to learn to shoot it? Where can a person legally store it? How to get legally licensed to own it?

    Based on the 505 Gibbs…which is a large round. This thing is faster, flatter, and carries more energy than the 338 Lapua. Don’t look for it to be in a semi auto unless Barrett takes it up.

    What brass is this cartridge based upon? There is a .338 Federal which is a necked up .308 and outperforms many calibers but can fit in an AR10.

    Is this only a bolt action offering? Thor
