Desert Tactical Arms .300WM 670 Yards

DOWNED BUCK AT 670 YARDS WITH SRS IN .300WM

This photo was taken October 12, 2012 by my guide Colt from Buffalo Wy. This is my first harvest with my SRS. 670 yards, set up was 300 win mag, 208 A-Max at 2881 FPS. What makes this my best so far is that I set a goal last year to harvest my buck over 500 yards, and was so glad to make the shot at 670 yards. I have several custom rifles but none that shoot like my SRS out of the box. I have the 300 WM, 338LM, 308 WIN and 260 Rem kit. Working on the 260 Rem right now but all the other kits shoot 1/2 MOA or better when I do my part. One off the best things about the DTA SRS is that I know spent good money on a top of the line scope and can use it for the 4 diffrent kits, unlike other rifles I own 1 scope for one rifle. Thanks.

Desert Tactical Arms 5 Shots in .25

5 SHOTS INSIDE .25 WITH THE COVERT IN .260

My 260 shoots 5 shots inside .25 at 100 yds. I love it, and my one of a kind dura coat camo just adds to it! Sorry it’s hard to see the targets, one was shot when it was 18 degrees and the other when it was 60 with 123 amax and h4250 powder with lapua brass and fed primers. There is none other better! Awesome is all I can say…

Coyote Hunting Desert Tactical Arms 6.5 Creedmore

NEW MEXICO COYOTE HUNTING WITH DTA IN 6.5

Hunting coyotes here in New Mexico. I set up with my DTA 6.5 creedmoor which shoots straight as an arrow out past 1000 yards. I am 10 minutes into my set-up and this nice female trots in thinking breakfast is about to be served. My jack-in-distress stops her broadside at 65 yards. Wow, she is almost TOO close for a DTA 6.5 creedmoor or is she??. So I aim low and make a good hit. This coyote is dead right there. My DTA gets it done, again.

Desert Tactical Arms .5 MOA 800 Yards

1/2 MOA AT 800 YARDS WITH SRS IN .260

Here’s proof of your 1/2 MOA guarantee.800 yards. This was the first time I shot the rifle after breaking it in. To get ready for this year’s PRS matches, I needed a rifle in .260 rem. After researching DTA and various reviews, I purchased one just last month. Within a week, I participated in a train-up with the SRS. I’m a fan of the length for maneuverability and the bull-pup design. It allows me to rest the trigger housing against objects instead of resting the magazine like a traditional bolt rifle design.

Precision Rifle Contest Desert Tactical Arms Arizona

THE ULTIMATE TOOL FOR PRECISION RIFLE COMPETITIONS

“My very first precision rifle contest win. October 2011 at the Arizona LRPRS. This stage was the “Sniper Box”. The stage consisted of 5 targets at different distances from 250 to 450 yards. The time limit was 60 seconds. I shoot DTA because it’s the best combination of accuracy, ruggedness and compact over all size. I think it is the ultimate tool for precision rifle competitions.”
-Ty Frehner

Precision Rifle Contest Desert Tactical Arms

ONE RIFLE ENDLESS OPTIONS

“I thought I might try my DTA at Fclass. Turned up and the friendly jokes started like, “Where’s the rest of it?” and “Can’t you afford the full barrel?”. Some of them wanted to have a look at the way it changes barrels, so i removed it a couple of times and so did they. After we had done this they told me that there wasn’t enough time to re zero it. I said no need to, it will be ok to go straight into my comp at 500 yards. Yea right was the general mood. In the past when l have shot Fclass I have used my Tubb 2000 or my AI AW and I have never been able to shoot a possible come close lots but just miss out. So I laid down with a small group of non believers standing behind me. With my nerves picking up, l shot my first possible and you could of herd a pin drop.
I like the versatility that this platform gives. An example of this over the New Years I turned up to a three day marathon Fclass shoot (Australia’s longest) with my DTA. Shot the comps during the day (Shot a place on each day), went back to my sisters farm where l was staying and changed barrels and went fox shooting that night. Turned up the next morning at the comp, opened up the case, changed barrels, and got stuck into the comp again. One rifle endless options.”

Alaskan Grizzly Desert Tactical Arms .338LM

ALASKAN GRIZZLY WITH DTA IN .338LM

About mid morning Sept 1st this 6’10” grizzly came into our moose camp and took some meat from our meat rack. We didn’t get a shot it happened so fast. Later that afternoon we went back to the kill site and found two adult grizzlies in the area. My buddy and I both shot and dispatched both of them with one shot each. I am shooting a DTA in .338 Lapua Mag and 8.5 – 32X Nightforce scope 250 Nosler Accubond at 2850 fps. 1″ group at 300 yards routinely. Awsome weapon. i now have a titanium silencer on it and am waiting on a new stock with monopod and cheek piece. I love this setup. It’s simple, it is extremely accurate and easy to shoot. Also, I love being able to take off my “hunting barrel .338 Lapua” and switch with a .300 Win Mag and be able to shoot a lot of ammo with the same platform I hunt with without wearing out my Lapua barrel. Great concept.

Elk Hunt 185 Yards Desert Tactical

185 YARD “CHIP SHOT” WITH COVERT IN 7WSM

“I shot this elk with my SRS in a 7 WSM, the ammo used was DTM’s 168 gr Berger, SHOUT out to the guys at DTM, exceptional accuracy, perfect combination of velocity and bullet choice. I dont have a cool story of this super tough long shot, it was a simple chip shot at 185 yds, although I would have been just as confident out at extended ranges.”

DOWNED MOOSE WITH .338LM

“This year I used my DTA 338 lapua for moose hunting. Had a difficult shot through a small opening in the brush and trees and 1 shot at 200 yds took the bull right off his feet and flipped him over. The rifle worked great in the rain and brush and now my partner and I will be enjoying moose this winter. Thanks!”

INCREDIBLE 3 SHOT GROUP AT 100 YARDS WITH SRS IN .308

Weather conditions were perfect; almost no wind at a temperature of 68 degrees. Using a load I worked up with Berger 168 VLD bullets, Lapua brass, RL-15, CCI BR2 primers, I shot one hole groups all day. The attached photo shows the best of them. It measures .348 inches edge to edge. When you subtract the caliber (.308) that leaves a center to center measurement of .040.
I have been shooting for nearly 30 years and I have never ever shot a group this tight. This is just as good as it will ever get. Your rifles are absolutely superb.

Desert Tactical Arms 900 Yards

3 SHOT GROUP AT 900 YARDS

Witnessed this group being fired today at 900yds with a DTA in 308. There are 3 orange markers in the target marking the 3 shots of the group. (and one white patch marking the centre of the target). For reference, each dot on the mil ret is 0.2mRad in diameter. So this is about a 0.2MOA group at 900yds. That’s the best group I’ve ever seen at that distance; hence the pic! The rifle averaged 0.5MOA at 800, 900 and 1000yds.
