Remington 40-XS .338 Lapua finally shipping

Tactical Life reports that the Remington 40-XS chambered in .338 Lapua will soon be available to purchase. It was announced nearly two years ago in Remington’s 2008 law enforcement catalog but, to the best of my knowledge, was never manufactured.

It is built on the custom shop’s 40-SX action and trigger group and features a 26″ barrel with threaded removable muzzle brake, hand bedded McMillian A5 stock, detachable magazine and lengthly top picatinny rail.
