Def Edge Advanced Class

Shawn and Bob:
I enjoyed the classes w/ the two of you. It was very well put together and I think all of us learned a lot. My goal was to improve my ability and range while hunting. I showed up w/ a 7, while everyone else had 338's. We stretched the range to about 1700. You could really see the advantage of the big dog when you ran into any wind. I could have been more prepared, I didn't have my ballistic program as dialed in as I could have. My weather station needs improved, my tripod is not good enough. Shawn knew this would be a problem so he had one on hand in case I showed up without a new one.
We camped out, and started shooting at daybreak. The conditions were very good and we got a lot of shooting in. We sat around a nice campfire and watched send it volume 2.
All of the guys were good shooters and we had a very good time. Some of the finer points that I think we all took home with us was, the importance of cheek weld. If we didn't have a good cheek weld you paid the price. Things had to be perfect once you got much past 1000 yards. Consistent hand loads were a must.

BH,

It was a pleasure having you there, glad you learned and had a good time both. Let us know how it all pays during hunting season (I know you have 2 or 3 tags ).

Re: Def Edge Advanced Class

There were two 338 Edges, one Lapua and one wildcat that I had not heard of. The last class someone shot a Lapua as well. The guys shot the same dope for the most part. They looked to be nearly ballistic twins. Guy shot his w/ factory ammo which was about $4.50 a pop. I was very impressed w/ the Edge's.

Re: Def Edge Advanced Class

I have been shooting for many years and attended Shawn's basic class about 2 years ago and had a great time. I really learned alot from Shawn and his father, Bob. They both help me bring my long range shooting to the next level. I plan to attend their advanced long range class in the near future.
