This was one of my favorite new rifles to see come out at SHOT ‘13. Noreen has been on my radar since I first stumbled upon The Noreen Bad News .338 Lapua AR style rifle.
One of my favorite old service rifles was the M1903 which fires the .30-06 (also one of my favorite calibers) so it was natural I was drawn to this rifle.
There were a number of .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua AR style rifles out at SHOT but this rifle really caught my eye because of the .30-06 chambering since that caliber is almost as common as the .308s and .223s. It makes great sense to make a rifle that is so familiar, like the family of ARs, but in a higher caliber.
