I will have to call around and see where I can find some. How much does it weigh?

Once again, excellent shooting Shawn!

At the West Coast Tactical match last weekend after the match was over I dialed in on a bush that we knew was 1600 yards away. The bush was about 2 feet wide by 2 feet tall. I dialed in 41.5 up and with a full wind of 6 to 7 mph from left to right I dialed in 8.5 left. With this I was able to consistantly fire 5 shots into this bush. I let others try the rifle out and everyone of them was right on elevation wise, with just a couple of shots hitting to the left of the bush.

This rifle and cartridge are just flat out amazing! I love it!

It weighs quite a bit probably 40lbs or so.

The scope is a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22 - 50 mm NP-R2

Shawn,

How does the Nosler 225 gr AB fair in the 338 Edge at long range?

It shoots extreamly flat for a ways, but does not carry the energy or buck the wind as well as the 300 SMK. It has been a long time but I do believe it ran around 3300 fps.

Shawn,

Is that the same rifle you used last time? If so, you've painted it since, eh? Looks good!

How do you like those Seekin rings over the NF rings?
