On a recent visit to Canberra, I was introduced to an M700 338 Lapua Magnum that was manufactured at a ‘secret location’ somewhere in the ACT.
Made by GC Precision Developments in Canberra, this very serious hunting rifle looked to me more like a sniper rifle and, I was assured, is just as accurate.
I have been invited to see the weapon in action in the field at a later date, so rest assured I’ll have video of that activity too, when it happens.
In the mean time, please check out this video, which gives a decent technical overview of this very sexy weapon…
Regardless of the financial arrangement, however, I am genuinely excited to be working with and support this company.
I am also very excited by their products – and about the prospect of sending some rounds down range in the very near future.
