A guy dropped this off and asked if I would clean it for him.

Image

It's made by Savage and I can't tell for sure exactly what caliber it is. The guy said "338".
I assume it's a 338 Peppy Le Pew since that seems to be the hot new exciting long range caliber.

The think literally weighs about 15+ pounds!!
I had already taken the bolt out of it before I took pictures, But the bolt has a huge handle on it.

He said it was getting so the brass would stick and not ejaculate like it should.
I asked him several questions including, "When was the last time you cleaned it?"
The answer was he hasn't - not even once!! He's had it for several years...

The bore was fouled really bad.
Makes me wonder if it was because of an over-pressure condition than made the brass stick.
A really fouled barrel can cause that.

But, I've never seen a rifle like this before - especially a Savage!!
He says it's really accurate!! :D :sniper2:

.338 Lapua has become a favorite round for mil snipers on long shots. Of course, it doesn't have .50 BMG power for penetrating armor, bit it'll reach out and touch someone!

Nice looking rifle. I have heard that's a really accurate round. Expensive to shoot too.

I've just never seen a rifle like that...

My KIA (Know-It-All) SIL says it's like a "bench-rest platform" and a "chassis" for long range shooters - competition shooters I believe he meant.
