I have one of those .308's, too, BTW. Last weekend in NE shooting prairie dogs:
Yeah, duh. Inch lbs instead of ft. lbs. Sometimes the fingers short circuit the brain. The actual called for specs are 5 inlb heavier, but I find it better to use my values and check often.

Seems quite a few like the 12BVSS. Mine has been a little frustrating.

I was out at the range Friday and a guy was preparing to test his new rifle and said he was entering a 2000 yd match in Idaho this next week. Anyway, he was shooting this:

Accuracy International .338 Lapua...
And I found out the thing lists for $11,600 with the scope (Nightforce) and folding stock. He also had his bench set up with a lab quality digital scale (about $2800), a Harrellson dropper, and various other relatively expensive items. He offered to let me shoot it, but it took so long for him to set up I had to leave. Wasn't too clear about the results of his first 20 shots at 200 yds, but realize he sighting in, testing loads, etc.
I let him shoot my Savage .308 in the midst of this and he was suitably impressed.

I've never had any interest in guns. This thread is changing things.

Few years back a British Army Corporal set a new record for the longest kill(s).

Here is the wiki article
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Harrison_(sniper)

and here is a you tube doco about it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il43qkm7WMs

Carried out using an AI rifle similar to above.

there was also a thread about it on here, in JoMomma I think

Yes I have seen the coverage of the Brit A-I shooter on the Sniper show (History channel?). A-I helped develop the .338 Lapua. Got $11,000 ??

OMG, are those yours? If so do you shoot at Byers? Call me next time and I will supply the gas.

nah, just doesn't look right, too bright for me
I imagine the recoil would reverberate right through them as well, right in to your shoulder, cool but not for me

But you are not supposed to let those rifles touch your shoulder. You just let your finger touch the trigger and then blow gently on your finger to set off the round.

Then what is the purpose of the (more or less) traditional shaped stock? Cosmetics, or simply something to put on the cradle/rest/sandbags? Seems like they could just attach the barreled action to a block of concrete and get a similar result.

mmmm...not so much. A lot more goes into the geometry of a bench rest stock than most would think.
Big and heavy does nothing, center of bore to center of rear bag alignment is critical. They have to move Straight rearward, not twisting around and flailing. Affects consistent shot to shot repeatability

mmm..no, not at all. Not even with 40 and 50 caliber rifles.
22 ppc shorts are fun too

Okay, that makes a little more sense. I'm sure, as in most sports, in bench-rest shooting there are lots of little rules and specs that come into play, just as there are in IPSC or IDPA, shooting games I am more familiar with.

I enjoy rifle shooting, but more in the plinking, hunting and three-gun context.
