That and the new Defensive Edge +P design throat makes it a pretty sweet .338. It is what I choose over all of them anyway.

thats interesting. i also have a redding turret and a redding boss.
i had to buy an rcbs ammo master to handle the dies for my gun.
the instructions i received were to load 1 round starting at 132 gr bmg50
and increase each single round by 1 grain till the chrony said 3200.
then start playing with loads. my barrel is 34" and it seems im not gaining much after 137 gr.
yours will be interesting to watch.

Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

Jeff, what is the length of a formed case and what is your OAL with a loaded 300gr Berger touching?

Thanks
Bryan

Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

That is one, VERY, fine looking weapon you have!!!!

It's a good thing it doesn't register how many times I've looked at your LRKM because if it did, you'd think I was a stalker. I feel like a moth being drawn to a light bulb. Damn, that thing is badazz!!! I need to stop looking, I'm starting to develop gun envy and the only cure, I can't afford.

Jeff, that is a fine looking rifle. Happy for you that the wait is over, looking forward to your progress reports. I only have one question, is it legal to kill a bull in Wy, while shooting from Mt.
