Just wondering what projectiles you have in those rouinds?
Also the Seekingmag systems are awsome i have one and we are the Agent here in Australia but if you are looking to save some coin and happy using an internal mah box you just need a Wyatts Box.
The 338 Edge is also a better option than a 338 Norma because the Norma uses the same oversize rim as the Lapua and it is borderline for a Rem Action. the 338 Lapua actions made by Remington are completly diferent in regards to hardness i have trued most models of Rem actions and the new Lapua was twice as hard to re cut the threads over other Rem CM actions. You can not use a Stainless Rem action their is not enough safety margin for error. The 338 Norma will also be very expensive for brass so remembver that.
My personal opinion is that the 338 Edge would be the best military cartridge as it is a safer fit in most commercial bolt actions where the Lapua and Norma cases are just to big in diameter to make them safly used in all commercial magnum actions. The other option is the standard 338 Rem UltraMag it is almost as good as the 338 lapua and 338 Norma and has a shorter OAL to match the 375 H$H so it can go in all mag actions with care.
Just go down the 338 Edge on a switch barrel with your 7mm Mag or on a seperate action.
