The 3 Lug action, or 3L, can be used for short range and benchrest shooting because it can handle 223 to 308 cases. The 3L is the smallest of BAT’s 3 lug actions and is comparable to the Model B and Model DS BAT actions in size, but the 3 lug bolt throw is only 60 degrees, while the bolt throw on a 2 lug action like the B and DS is 90 degrees. The bolt body on a 3 lug also covers the lug area and reduces the chance of a shooter getting blow by in the face. This action is 7.43″ long and comes in several body shapes with a starting weight of 33 ounces, a load port length of 2.70″, and the barrel tenon is 1.062×18 tpi.
