Steyr SSG 08 now in .338 Lapua Magnum

The Steyr SSG 08 now in available .338 Lapua Magnum.

The cold-hammer-forged barrel measures 27.17 inches to maximize the potential of the .338 cartridge, and its 1:9 twist rate will stabilize bullets up to and including the increasingly popular 300-gr. HPBT Secnar projectile. The action, magazines and stock were lengthened to accommodate the dimensions of the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge. Due to the SSG 08′s extreme accuracy potential and ability to maintain supersonic speeds at distances in excess of 1,500 meters with the .338 Lapua chambering, a 20-MOA declination scope base will also be included to make use of your favorite long-range optic. The .338 Lapua Magnum version of the SSG 08 also includes a newly designed heavy-duty bipod.

The MSRP is $6,795.

    I’d get the Savage 110-BA in .338LM for about $5000 less. My FFL quoted me somewhere around $1689 for the Savage and based on the accuracy of my other Savage rifles I would not bet that the Steyr or any of the other .338LM rifles are worth $5000 more.

    I hope they are also going to soften some of the sharp edges around the pistol grip and stock folding mechanism. They were already unpleasent at the .308, wouldnt like to feel them with a .338 recoil 🙂

  • The 338 Lapua is sure becoming popular these days! Berger is just now coming out with 2 different 338 bullets that are each 300 grains that are supposed to have a great BC.

    well the .338 LAPUA does have more kenetic energy at 2,000 yards than a .50 BMG. I love the .338, its an excellent round! And i love steyr, an excellent gun company!

    I want one of those Savage 110s eventually, for now I have to stick with my K98 .300 Win Mag “Tacticool” build lol. .300 Win Mag can still put the hurt on…

    Have one in 308. Mounted with Nightforce scope and mounts and using Federal 168gr match it is placing 5 rounds groups just under 1 inch at 300yards off its bipod. These are sub 0.5 MOA guns and built like tanks
