MOA Rifles. Anybody have experience

I have several long range rifles including 2 setup for hunting!

Now looking to build either a 338 Lapua or 300 RUM in a 7.5 to 8# rifle for 1000 yard shots on Elk!

I'm with Tony, that sounds like a world of hurt waiting to happen. Not sure who would get more of a thump, the elk or the nut pulling the trigger.

Are you planning on putting a brake on it? I think an 8LB 30-06 kicks plenty hard enough, a Lapua better weigh at least 14lb for me to play with it.

Can't recall much but do recall seeing a discussion elsewhere. Definitely geared more to hunting than target.

I know this is for rifles, but I have had MOA do shotgun work for me and they are top notch to work with. Tom is a super guy.

I think MOA Precision that does shotguns, known as "Openclassterror" here on BE, http://moaprecision.com/, is a different outfit than the MOA rifle company listed by the OP. They are located in different cities and don't appear to be affiliated.

Yeah, GAP does nice work.  But they certainly aren't the only game in town.  Defaulting to GAP for a bolt action is like going to Wilson or Bear for a 1911.  They may be good, but there are plenty of other options.  Particularly if you want something truly custom.  Long Rifles Inc. builds probably number in the thousands, and the last one the did for me shot 1/4 MOA.   Plus they built the rifle to my specs in a matter of weeks, not months or years.  Short Action Customs is also very good.  As for MOA, why take a chance when there are lots of others with proven reps?
