Hows the 338 been treating you lately ?
I'd recognise that custom pistol grip anywhere ! Looks like your gun got a bad ass tactical paint job since I last saw her ?
Sounds like it's come together nicely.
Well done again.
Dear Down Under,
I start loving my 338Edge more and more past every day.
What at the biggining it was a dream, now is a great tactical hunting rifle.
I invest a lot of time and effort, lots of field shoting in really bad weather (windy, over canion, etc) and now is getting closer to the DREAM RIFLE. I love the 338 SMK's, never let me down from 75yrds to 1680 yrds.
You know shooting wey over 1500 yrds you really have to check your atmospheric condition before every shot.
About the custom grip.... Hmmm lots of changes on the way, I start with a HS Precision stoch and start modified myself the grip. Now is like a glove, and about the paint job... i change the paint from time to time just to blend with the hunting areas.
One down size... to damn heavy 19lbs rifle... realy hard to shot from standing position. 98% prone and 2% kneeling.
When I will burn out the barell I will go with a lighter contour.
You will get sore shoulders after houling 19lbs up and down 8-9km every days on elk country... but you will be surprised how fast you can ran with her when the adrenaline is pumping in your blood...
How is your 338Edge serving you down there?
