What is an AWM?
I’ve used the word “AWM” in this article a few times. If you’re reading this and it is not immediately apparent what the term “AWM” is referring to, I hope this explanation helps. In the hunting field, the “AWM” is the official nickname of the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge. It’s the grand daddy of the magnum cartridge family. The extremely popular 6.5 Creedmoor is more popular than the magnum, but not by much. The .338 Lapua Magnum is the dominant .338 caliber cartridge in hunting circles. The .338 Win is not often used in large game hunting, but it is used in such limited instances as California mule deer, deer-antelope, and caribou hunting. The .338 Lapua Magnum is the biggest brother of the .338 Win.
How does an AWM work?
The AWM uses Accuracy International’s proprietary Magnum Research Adder mechanism. Magnum Research Adder mechanism, when compared to traditional triggers, consists of the following major components: Standard semi-automatic single-stage trigger Stubby ramp Height adjustable trigger shoe Large external solenoid Controlled firing pin Rounded trigger stop Above is the rear view of the trigger mechanism. On the left side of the trigger, the notch is under the recoiling bolt carrier group. On the right side, the ramp is the recoiling pin. The solenoid is externally cocked. The ramp and solenoid help load and unload the rifle on the move without resetting the trigger or pulling the trigger each time. How does the AWM work in bolt action mode? The AWM operates as a bolt-action rifle.
What does an AWM look like?
The AWM is a bolt-action hunting rifle made of lightweight titanium with an adjustable gas block and a Picatinny rail on the barrel. There is a pistol grip and a two-stage trigger. The stock is made of similar lightweight titanium and is adjustable for length of pull. The ammo canister is made of steel for easy access to your ammunition. How does the AWM work? The AWM uses the Black Hills ECM 5-round rotary magazine to feed the 5.56 NATO rounds. These 5 round mags can hold 5 rounds of .338 Lapua Magnum (bottle stopper) or 5 rounds of .300 AAC Blackout (cup stopper) The bolt of the AWM is adjustable. This means that you can switch it between a full power bolt travel, adjustable bolt travel, or fixed bolt travel.
What is an AWM rifle?
Typically, an AWM rifle is a bolt-action rifle with a large magazine, chambered in a large bore cartridge such as the .338 Lapua Magnum or .300 Winchester Magnum. The Lapua Magnum or .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges are essentially a lengthened and modified version of the .375 H&H Magnum cartridge, and are used by riflemen to hunt big game like lions, elephants, and hippopotamus. Just as a full-length magnum handgun has a bore diameter larger than that of an extended-length pistol round, a .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge has a bore diameter larger than that of an .243 Winchester round. Additionally, a longer barrel is utilized in rifles chambered in the large bore magnum cartridge. The .338 Lapua Magnum round has a longer barrel and is fired from a standard bolt-action rifle.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of AWM versus AWM, let’s discuss a few definitions: “A Long Range Sniper Rifle”: This term is typically used to describe rifles that are used to take headshots and other accuracy-dependent cartridges like the .338 Lapua Magnum. Most .338 rifles are chambered for factory ammunition and are generally more expensive than a bolt-action rifle. The term also refers to those rifles that are produced by private companies or specialized rifle makers for the specific purpose of taking headshots and other accuracy-dependent cartridges like the .338 Lapua Magnum. All AWM rifles are sold to militaries. So, a .338 rifle isn’t an AWM rifle because the SBR exists in a rather narrow niche compared to the number of .338 rifle produced.
