NEW Long Range Precision Chassis - Full Review - Applied Weapons Technologies




What do you think about this video?

ryusekai: What range finder cover is that?

Samiam: I have this chassis built up with a Savage .308, 24" barrel, 1:10. Would 168 gr. Hornady Amax's be a good bullet to work up or something else? I'm thinking of using Varget powder because it's all I can find where I live. I don't need load data, I'm just wondering what .308 cartridge/bullet/powder combinations are popular. I will be posting a review of the AWT chassis for Savage enthusiasts in a couple months. Thanks for blazing the trail Rex.

Burnin Green: excellent review, covered everything very well, subscribed

iceclimbr1: Looking to do a build with my rem 700 .243 SA with a stock like this. Can you recommend any resources?

storkyring: great review rex,just 1 question are ther any points on this chassis to fix a sling to or sling loops?

Carter H: oh and you should do more chassis reviews since you cover everything about it, the purpose, the pros and cons, what would be good with it etc

ssds1980: Love warching you. This reminds me sooo much of my xlr chassis its crazy. Love my xlr but am interested as can be about this one. Thanks again

ericroadking: Wonderful review!

ViolentKisses87: Awesome video I hope it gets at least Nutnfacy sized view counts :D

Charles Crabtree: Please...we could use more volume, I have everything cranked all the way up on my end and I can barely hear you, and at some points I can make out nothing. Anything you can do on your end would be very much appreciated. Many Thanks for the excellent education you are providing. It's Greatly Appreciated!

Sukkot Prepper: I have the Wichester Model 70 in 300 Win Mag with polymer stock. I gotta say the stock really sucks. I can't even bed it. Can't afford a good bedded stock either. It's a nice rifle otherwise. If I can find a long range stock for it I can save for it. I'll throw this piece of junk polymer stock in the trash.

TiborasaurusRex: Remington is making one now in their police model, that would be really nice. The Armalite AR-30 should be under that price range as well.

Brent Smith: Rex. Correct me if I am wrong, but did you compare the difference in accuracy with the factory stock before installing the aftermarket ? Wondering if it improved or degraded accuracy.

sorryociffer: You've sold me. This is my next stock. I like the look and apparent performance.

Wrex Allen: Great review. I have an XLR Evo now and would love to hear more about your thoughts compared to this one. BTW: I hail from Central Ky, myself, so I'm almost obligated in buying one, rofl.

arridedry: good videos, thanks for uploading!

Hunter Martin: Another awesome video, thanks Rex!

TiborasaurusRex: Certainly will. Its been real nice thus far. Lifetime warranty - if I'm not mistaking. Take care.

jay whitney: Great video guys best on the net for shooting tips I think

Sanus180: Well done on this review, very thorough. Thanks. Bet this product can't be imported into Australia....

Ryan Berg: Great review. However,... :) ... the buttstock is not "completely" adjustable as you mention,... it doesn't seem to allow for cant and height of the butt-pad,... I know, it's a little persnickety, but a few of the chassis manufacturers you compare this system to off those options,... just a thought.

SniperSpec0ps: I second the request for the 110BA .338, would love to hear your thoughts on one before I lay down the coin.

Steve CUDDZILLA: Great review Rex. Are you a musician? Really digging your intro music.

sadisticsinon: First of all REX, Thank You for all the hard work. Excellent, Well Spoken and Organized. I may order one of these as my first rifle. I love target shooting and want to move to longer range shooting. Do you have a recommended setup for this rifle? My priority is ease of use, relatively cheap ammo to get more lead down range and experience, and easy to comprehend adjustability on a scope worth having. Consistency is paramount to my learning curve.

Xof: Yet another great review!!! Can you confirm the compatible mags for this chassis please?

Swiftsniper002: I ended up buying a bell and Carlson for my savage. Love it,however I was thinking of building a .300 or possibly .338 lapua, so I may have to look into this chassis;)

glennwih: 6.8 SPC II Horandy SXT 120 grainers 1/4" groups at 100 yards.

TiborasaurusRex: You could throw an uncut barrel blank in there if you wanted - exactly how heavy depends on your mission criteria and your own personal preference. :-)

jay whitney: If you are ever in the UK give me a shout

swiss93boy: Really nice review, Rex. The whole time I thought "well that will cost maybe 3'000$" - But then - Baaam, 800$. That's nothing if I consider the target rifles/stocks from local companies like Bleiker. Those things cost 5000 Fr. easy (no scope, just a diopter) ;) So for a barrel do you always use the one that comes with the receiver, or would you recommend changing it out to a really nice, thick "custom"-barrel? Hey, än fättä Gruäss us dä Schwiiz ;)

Samiam: After some research it appears 2.880" cartridge is the max length a SA, AI magazine will accept. The 6mm Rem is 2.825" so it should work. However my 6mm was my first hunting rifle (sentimental value) and I just can't tear it apart. After watching your review on the .243 and seeing what you have been doing with that caliber inspires me. Besides .243 ammo seems to be the only box left on the shelves. Cheaper too! First run chassis scare me so please update your review if you encounter issues. TY.

TiborasaurusRex: Yeah, got to support the locals for sure! I hope to get that XLR review here one day soon. Take care.

Trevor Forde: thank you sir

Samiam: Rex, I'd like to build a long range rifle with an AWT stock but I'd like to do a conversion using my old 6mm Remington 700 BDL action w/ custom barrel. You seem to be a fan of the .243 so I was wondering if this conversion would be possible and/or a waste of money? I could just do a Varmint .243 swap like you did but the older Remington actions are silky smooth. What do you think?

Samiam: Rex, I just ordered an AWT chassis in Remington SA. What caliber would you recommend for a beginning long range shooter? My "criteria" is: effective up to 1000m at steel targets and up to 600m on medium size wild game (antelope, mule deer).

TiborasaurusRex: I's have to harass a guy I know who has one to test it, but I'll see what I can do :-)

David Howland: With the understanding that it is all personal preference. Would you prefer a aluminum chassis over McMillan a5 style stock? I have a Savage 110 FCPK and on that model the bolt release was put in front of the trigger guard. That make my stock choices very limited. With that said I've narrowed it down to two chassis a Stockade Gun Stocks PD/T or the XLR Evolution. I could go either way at this point. I would like to hear your perspective.

Wrex Allen: Thanks man!

Cogzed: Could you do a review on the Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua? :) Excellent video! I've been thinking of picking one of these up. I think I might do it after this review!

TiborasaurusRex: Use the longer 10 round AI mags for the Remington S/A. Use either the short or the long AI mags for the long action models.

Shawn Strauss: I know no one who is more anal than you. That is an extreme compliment. Your attention to detail is beyond reproach. I wish I knew as much about ballistics as you do!

Cogzed: He's coming in loud and clear for me w/my volume up only about 25%. Great video review Rex!

minervius: without the foreend it looks a bit james bond-y :D I dont know why they dont make their long-action version to accept the new doublestack AI mags for 10 rnd capacity in .338

TiborasaurusRex: Both cartridges will have a similar bolt face with a diameter of .470 +/- so you theoretcially swap barrels w/o too much work, however the challenge would be in getting a long enough AI magazine that fits the longer 6mm Rem cartridges. That may be tricky. It might be easier to find an old rifle in a short action .243 or .308 configuration and build up a custom .243 Win with the AWT. Then you could use factory 10 rd AI mags.

TiborasaurusRex: You got it... AICS coming next, as far as stock/chassis reviews are concerned.

xXCALLOFDUTYGUYXx: That rifle is absolutely amazing. I wish I had the budget for one of those.

TheGuitarmaniac10: Nice review Rex!

Mark Haven: Please do a review about the savage BAS-k 10 would be awesome

getcutson: Looks a lot like msr

ordinalkirk: Great review. I always learn something new each time I watch one of your videos! Just one (silly) comment. All the "tactical guys" on YouTube pronounce the word "ambidextrous" as ambidextrEEous. I do not think there is a long E in the last syllable. I checked the pronunciation on a few sites (like dictionary dotc om) just to be sure.
