Product Description

    Details

    The highly advanced, new generation AX338 bolt action sniper rifle from Accuracy International is based on the DNA of the battle proven AW series. Inheriting the toughness, reliability, superb accuracy and ease of maintenance of it’s celebrated predecessor, the AX Magnum action retains the same flat-bottom design, but is both longer (CIP/SAAMI), and wider allowing the use of a compact and reliable double stack 10-round magazine. Simply perfection.

    According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest successful rifle shot in history was made in Afghanistan by a British sniper named Craig Harrison. According to reports, Harrison and his colleagues were providing cover for an Afghan National Army patrol south of Musa Qala. When the Afghan soldiers and Harrison’s troop commander came under enemy fire, Harrison, whose vehicle was further back on a ridge, set up on a Taliban compound in the distance.

    He fired three shots with his .338 Lapua rifle. The first round hit a bad guy running a machine gun and killed him. Another insurgent stepped up to the machine gun and a second bullet killed him. The third shot took out the machine gun. The distance was measured by a GPS system at 8,120 feet—that’s 2,707 yards or 1.54 miles. It is so far that it took the bullets nearly three seconds to get there, and it’s 1,000 yards past what was thought to be the effective range of the firearm.
