The APO SABER M700 is a wallet-friendly rifle with high-dollar performance. Unlike most rifles at the $2,000 price point, the M700 SABER is not one your skill set will easily outgrow. Designed by APO to be highly modular and customizable, pretty much every piece of the Saber can be swapped out to meet the shooter’s skill and/or specific needs WITHOUT requiring special tools or searching for a skilled gunsmith. A set of Allen keys and a torque driver is pretty much all you need to upgrade your rifle.
Recently firearms industry writer Gordon Meehl contacted APO about field testing and writing about our SABER® M700™ 6.5 Creedmoor Precision Rifle. Gordon is entering the grueling 4-day Mammoth Sniper Challenge and wanted to take our SABER M700 6.5CM along for the challenge. His article and posts will be from a "first timer's" perspective with him being new to the practical-tactical rifle sports.
Big game hunting season is in full swing out in Montana and we have our first Field Test Report in from Britton C. who’s putting the SABER® M700™ .30-06 Sport-TAC to the test with great success. Britton harvested a nice Big Horn Sheep Ewe on his first trip afield with this APO rifle.
APO Custom Shop client Britton, an experienced and accomplished hunter out in Montana, offered to field test APO's SABER M700 Sport-TAC rifle chambered in .30-06 this hunting season. He’s got tags for big game and predators which are a great match for the .30-06 Sport-TAC! In 2016 Britton cleanly harvested a nice Montana Big Horn Sheep at 388 yards and a Pronghorn Antelope in 2017 at 596 yards both with his APO custom built SPR-300WM precision rifle chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum.
For the first time ever, retired USMC Major and past NRA Secretary Edward J. "Jim" Land Jr. is lending his name and his signature to a custom tactical rifle, along with his personal involvement in the design and testing of the firearms. Soon, Friends of NRA supporters will have the chance to own one of 50 limited-edition SABER®-M700™ Major E.J. Land Signature Edition Tactical Rifles created by the Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) Custom Shop and Precision Weapons Section.
Dubbed the “Working Man’s Sport Utility Rifle” by my editor, I set out to prove the worthiness of Ashbury Precision Ordnance’s SABER M700 chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor “against predators of the four- and two-legged variety.” The likelihood of the zombie apocalypse kicking off this week is rather low, so I’ll primarily stick with the much more likely scenario of giving a coyote a dirt nap.
