Braggin'



Thought I would post a pic of a group I shot tonite with my 338 EDGE. I know this won't seem that impressive to you seasoned long range shooters, but for a guy that just started shooting and reloading in Jan.08, I am very pleased. I have put in the time and work, and have learned a great deal from this website. Couldn't help doing a little " braggin"

WOW!!

Awesome group!! Chit I'd be very happy with that any day of the week and I've been loading for 10 years.

My 338 EDGE hasn't shot any groups that good, yet anyways...

Congrats on the fine group!!

Re: Braggin'

My load is 92 gr H-1000 with bullet @ .070 off the lands, so it will fit in the magbox. Running about 2800fps. Just started doing ballistic validation with Exbal. Don't know how to use a PDA yet, but that will be a winter project. The barrel is a Rock Creek 30", 1:9.3 twist. non-fluted, Sendero contour.

Thanks,
