You'd be suprised how accurate they can make those. Look at the Apache. That 30mm will blow a hole through a door knob while in forward flight from 2000ft AGL. It looks like the .338 is stabilized enough to be pretty damn accurate. Even if it wasn't, it'd still be pretty precise. On our Blackhawks, they have solid mounts, no suspension, and I can rip your head of with my M240H. :) Plus it's just fun.

I hope to soon make it up to Colorado and get some trigger time on their 408 and 338 models.

Ok LC, thanks.

Manufacturers page seems to say "338 Lapua Magnum".
Guess it is Lapua then after all.
