Anyone have an R1 in .338?

Recommended Posts

I have a bolt action .338 and I really like the cartridge. I am thinking of picking up an R1 in .338, but would like some more feedback than the few youtube vids out there.

Ok, the ouiga board didnt resurrect any spirits on this ghost town of a forum, so i bought myself the R1 in .338 black comfort tech. I like the caliber a lot, as it recoils less than my R1 .300 win mag (wood stock), and Im curious as to how good the comfort tech system is for recoil reduction. The first thing I am going to try is to put my original gen 1 R1 .300 and .30-06 barrels on the comfort tech platform. They are both tack drivers on the walnut stock, but .300 recoil is sharp. Very excited about this experiment. I will post pics when i get it all set up.

Ok, so the .300 win mag old blued barrel off of my wood stocked R1 fit on my new comfortech R1 receiver no problem. I might use the .300 for a while for longer range shooting.

Shoots great using hornady superformance 200 grain sst’s. Copper ammo and 225 grain core-lokts, not so much (see my other post about non-lead ammo). Comfortech is nice with the .338, but still has a whallop. Less recoil than my .300 win mag wood stock R1 for sure.
