Yesterday was kinda like Christmas in March at my FFL guy’s shop when I picked up this much-anticipated AX-308 from Accuracy International. I’ve been looking forward to this review for a long time: we’ve been flirting with Accuracy International for more than two years, and if my experience with other AIs is any indicator, I expect great things from the AX-308 . . .
This $8,000 heavyweight tips the scales at almost 14 pounds empty. Optics and rings are en route and as soon as she’s all set up, Joe Grine and I will likely be printing near-cloverleafs at 300 yards and beyond.
Accuracy International didn’t want me dipping into my small stockpile of steel-cased Brown Bear .308 for this review (quelle horreur!) so Black Hills Ammo kindly dropped off 300 rounds of 168- and 175-grain match ammo to feed the beat. We’ll chrono the ammo and send the numbers to Foghorn so he can make some of those funky vertical graph/chart/infogram things.
Stay tuned . . .
