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.

    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
