So Iím now looking at may be a 338 edge or a 338 Lapua in APRS Australia
The thing holding me back is the COST of the ammo; I donít mind spending $6000 on the rifle.
So I need Help from an AUSTRALIAN whit experience, what is the cost of 338 edge BRASS and 338 Lapua BRASS.
And anything ells that may help me
338 LM brass is expensive, no bones on that one. The 338 Edge brass is just the 300 Rem Ultra Mag brass necked up, which is ALOT cheaper. Bang for buck, you may be better off with a 338 EDGE.
APRS won't chamber rifles in 338 LM anymore, if I recall correctly, but they will do 338 EDGE at this stage. I rate their rifles, as I use them.
