Kelbly Atlas Lite 308 Win Barreled Action


This is a sleek, lightweight barreled action, chambered in 308 Winchester (αlpha Munitions, SAAMI spec chamber).  Built on Kelbly’s Atlas Lite action – the most rugged action possible for practical, tactical, or hunting.  Building off of the success of Atlas Tactical, the Atlas Lite is its skeletonized, lightweight revision.

Each action comes standard with a Black Nitride finish from H&M Metal Processing. This finish allows you to use this action dry or without lubrication for extreme environments. As always, it is best to use lubrication in normal day-to-day shooting. In addition to the Black Nitride process, it comes with a fluted bolt, to help move dirt into the flutes allowing for better function of the action.  The Atlas Lite is designed to use Hawkins Precision Direct Mount Rings (Stiller – Lone Peak Models) – the Picatinny rails from the Atlas actions work as well if you’d like a full rail instead.

Paired with Preferred’s carbon fiber barrel in a Heavy Palma contour, this rifle is built to deliver precision and accuracy in an extremely lightweight package!

This action follows the standard Remington 700 footprint, which allows the user to tap into that enormous aftermarket to further customize their rifle.
