    Please bear with me for being slightly off topic. I have a 300RUM that after a bit will need a new barrel. I have been looking to put on a 338 Edge. I have a few hundred new Nosler 300RUM brass I was thinking of saving for the future Edge. Could you please tell me what issues you have had with the Nosler RUM brass? Will it be friendly to make into Edge brass....Thankyou for your input, patients and help.

    Nosler and Remington brass in 338 Edge just don't last more that three -- four firings without loosing primer pockets. I tried to reform pockets without any success .
    Put your rum brass up for sale as there are a lot of rum users and order Berlrain 338 edge brass from Shawn and you won't be looking back, great brass.
    Just got five firings on this brass and primer pockets are still tight.

    Good shooting.

    Thank's for the quick reply. Wonder why that is...? My RUM is a blast to shoot..Those 208 A-Max are cost effective as well. May have to look at the Edge as another gun all togeather........Oh Darn........

    Well it was an Idea. I was sort of already thinking that. I think the 300 win would be about as big as I would go with the BR2's I have good luck accuracy wise. i'm getting pretty excited about this. I'm thinking I'll have the barrel salt bath nitrated to extend the barrel life.
