[SHOT 2018] Lithgow LA105 Woomera Long Range Rifle at SHOT Range Day 2018


    Australian rifle company Lithgow Arms has introduced a new rifle for the precision rifle shooting (PRS) market. Called the LA-105 Woomera (after an Australian aboriginal type of general purpose atlatl or spear thrower), it is based on the Lithgow Arms LA102 centerfire bolt action rifle, but further accurized and fitted with a Kinetic Research Group developed chassis that is similar to both the Whiskey-3 and X-Ray chassis. The chassis features a simpler stock like the X-Ray, but M-LOK mounting points on the forend similar to the Whiskey-3 and Bravo chassis.

    Initially, the LA105 Woomera will be released in two calibers, 6.5mm Creemoor to be released in the second quarter of 2018, and .308 Winchester in the third quarter of 2018. The LA105 Woomera sports the same cold hammer forged free floated barrel that gave Tom Gomez such good results in his review of the LA102. In 6.5mm, the barrels will come with a tight 1:8 twist rate common to other factory precision rifleofferings in the same caliber. In .308 Winchester, twist is the tried-and-true 1:10 rate that goes all the way back to the M1892 Springfield-Krag in .30-40 Army, allowing for stabilization of even long, low drag projectiles. Thanks to the chassis, the LA105 Woomera will use AICS magazines, rather than the Tikka T3 magazines of its predecessor.
