Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

Very, very nice rifle Jeff! Two questions. 1. Is that a formed case in the picture? and 2. I thought you said you were going to put an Atlas on it instead of the harris, did you change plans ir is that an upgrade for the future?

I expect to see a "Hits at 3000 yards" thread by the end of next month.....

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Yes, that case is formed in a test chamber and I think it was fired in the rifle too.

    I want to try an atlas but decided to wait until I can crawl behind one in person before I pull the trigger. I am having a little issue with rail mount thing. I am afraid it may not be as stable as the cradle used in the Harris design. But that could be just in my head and I will see when I get the chance to look at one somewhere.

    Got ya! You better compare the magnetospeed with your Oehler in this rifle too, can never have too much data!

    Great looking rig Broz,
    Looking forward to hearing of your success with it. I am sure there will be plenty.

    Can you tell us about your scope/ring/rail set up. How much elevation travel do those NF ATACR scopes have. That's some handy dial up!

    Very Very Nice Jeff

    You must be very happy with it

    I bet you get cranky with your PLRF10 now as I have

    The ATACR is the problem with around 130 internal moa elevation

    Looking forward to seeing how it goes, certainly plenty of room in the case for powder with the long throat, very nice.
