Got my .308 Slayer - over 220 FPE !
« on: May 26, 2016, 07:57:44 AM »
Tom finished my .308 Slayer which need some customization to make.  His normal gun is 26" long but he made me a 32" barrel.

We did a little shooting at his house when I went to pick it up but I will get more shooting and tuning done when I take it to the range.  The gun is putting out great FPE, with a 111 grain slug we have the first three shots around 950 fps.  I plan to play with the tune and see what works best for me.  You can set the gun to shoot well over 1000 fps with this slug depending on what tune you want.

We only shot at just shy of 50 yards at this house but slugs touching at that distance.  The gun handles great, feels comfortable when shouldered and is very quiet for a big bore with this kind of power.  Even though it has a 32" barrel it is still compact being a bullpup.

I have already shot the 26" barrel .308 version several times at 200, 300 and 400 yards.  If this gun performs like the others, it will be a "go to gun" for coyote.

In the picture Tom is holding my all black .308 in one hand and a .357 standard size in the other to give an idea of the size of the gun.

Very impressive thus far! Let us know how she does when you stretch her out a bit.
