Re: 338 edge oal help needed

In my edge I have the same as you but had my chamber cut to a coal of 3.950. If you don't have a deep enough chamber then you cannot seat the bullets out longer. On the other hand if that is how long your throat is the gun would probably shoot just fine, keep the bullets .10 off the lands and tryit. I wanted my bullets out of the powder as much as possible. All this is why I installed the wyatts. I have no feeding problems, but if you do there are ways you can adjust it to work fine. Hope this helps some.
