What did you think of it? How much was the recoil? Which rifle were you shooting and approx how much did it weigh?

I fired a 44* nitro something or other and it killed me?

TRG Sako 338 Lapua (Weight around 10-12 lbs) has basically the recoil of a 300 Win Mag plus enough shove that you know your not firing a 300 Win Mag. But, it's not really all the bad. My opinion is that the 338 Lapua is a good round. (Really flat shooter) However, the 408 Tactical has more interest to me; and the 50 BMG is King. For the price of components or new rounds the 338 doesn't make sense. I can buy 50 BMG cheaper than 338 components. Though, this is "suppose" to change. (That's why I didn't buy one) If you do reloading you may want to jump into it. But buying 20 rnds for $60 is silly.

Hey AlLapua, I was just looking at the AWM in the catalogue I just got from Accuracy International. Sweet looking rifle, really sweet. What is the total weight of your rifle, including scope and full magazine? What would you equate the recoil to? Which of the features did you get for your rifle from AI? If you had to purchase your rifle over, would you get any other features and/or delete any of the ones that you got? And lastly, what kind of MOA accuracy do you get with it? Thanks!!!!!
