Re: 338 edge load questions

After I moved the clicks to the right I shot the twelve different charges and that is the cluster. I am shooting the 300 hybrid through this gun. I am going to try
3@90.5
3@91.5
3@91.5 with 215
3@92.5

I am wanting to be able to shoot into the 2000 yard range but we will see what happens. If I can it am going to put some entries into the elr section.

    You should get rid of it. After looking closer at the group it is only a shade under 1/2 min. Really, that is still outstanding for that many different charges to go into that small of a group at that distance. You could stack a truck load of custom rifles in a pile and would be lucky to have one that would duplicate those results.

    I know it is pretty good. And that is the reason I hate chrongraphs you have something perfect on paper and have expectations for it. I went with a longer barrel hoping to get the 3000' mark. I did not have a chance to shoot today but hope to have it going this week. Bear opens pretty soon so I need to get it going. I will keep everyone posted but I have high hopes of shooting aways with it this week. I have 76 moa left. That would get me to 2200ish.

    Looks like a shooter to me, congrats...

    Are you using RP brass?

    H-1000?

    Cool, I will be working up a load with a new EDGE this week too. I need a case with a loose primer pocket to drill and tap for the OAL gauge. Do you have any yet?

    Nice groups in my eyes. Good shooting rifle. What is your overall length of the cartridge?
