Accuracy International AX 338 Long Range Rifle
The highly advanced, new generation AX338 bolt action rifle from Accuracy International is based on the DNA of the battle proven AW series. This new rifle from Accuracy International is chambered for the .338 Lapua Magnum but because of its modular construction can be converted to fire both the .308 Winchester and the .300 Winchester Magnum. Several tactical features include an adjustable butt-pad and cheek-piece, a folding chassis with a ergonomically designed pistol grip and integral Picatinny rail and a detachable magazine. Various barrel lengths in all calibers are an option. www.accuracyiinternational.com

Steyr Arms has substantially upped the ante on its extraordinary long-range tactical rifle, the SSG 08, with the introduction of a brand new adaptation chambered in the ultimate long-range tactical round; the .338 Lapua Magnum. The rifles are currently in route to the U.S. and will be available this fall. These rifles have a cold-hammer-forged barrel measuring 27.17 inches to maximize the potential of the .338 Lapua cartridge, along with a 1:9 twist rate to stabilize bullets up to and including the increasingly popular 300-gr. HPBT Secnar projectile. The action, magazines and stock were lengthened to accommodate the dimensions of the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge. A 20-MOA declination scope base will also be included to make use of your favorite long-range optic. The .338 Lapua Magnum version of the SSG 08 also includes a newly designed heavy-duty bipod. www.steyrarms.com
