338 edge + r bros =


Travis of R BROS Rifles builds a very accurate rifle. This is the third rifle I have from Travis, and they have all been tack drivers.
This is a 5 shot group I shot on 5/25 in a 20-30 mph crosswind. This was with virgin brass, and no load developement.
Bassically, Travis sent me a dummy round and load data, which he had done before sending the rifle. I don't know to many smiths that do that. I loaded up some rounds to sight in my scope. after a few shots to get on paper, I then shot the above group.

And here is a picture of the rifle. Weighs 12.4# as shown with NXS scope.
Thanks for the build, Travis

    Broughton barrel, 9.3X contour as per R BROS, fluted
    R BROS custom action
    DE brake
    Jewell trigger
    HS stock, for now
    DE adj cheek
    40 MOA rail, puts the NXS bottomed out at 100yard zero, so no Zero Stop needed.
