Re: 338 edge semiauto

I do aggree he should do some load development. You have to load diffrent for an AR. OAL is very importand. You will want to full length size your brass every time also. Bullet seats burther off the lands usually also.

Is this an AR platform you are building ?
If so, bolt action loads will not ably, and you need to do load developement from square one.
Just talked to lloyd and im going to do what you sugested. Just with out paying him. He doesnt have to do any load developement just make sure it cycles from 92 to 94.5gr of rutumbo. Thanks for all the input!

Re: 338 edge semiauto

Do you own all of these calibers, and if so how about some pics of your collection.

No not all mine. But a group of three that shoot together couple times a week. We are waiting for the rnd guns to arive but everything else we have. We should have the 408 and 338 lapua next week but the 338 edge will be longer.

On a different note does anyone have any experience with a semiauto 338 edge. Also ordered 338 lapua and 408 cheytac

If you're talking about Carlock, he may have Retumbo on his web site, but I will tell you, he is a big H1000 guy. Most of his customers are shooting 90 grains H1000 in the edge. This is what he recommends.
