Obviously you all agree with the custom action thing!

    I agree with him and it would be hard to get any better brass than the Lapua!

    Do you guys agree?
    I'm not a .338 authority but in general that's the case.

    Depending on your budget though if you snoop around there you'll find some pretty incredible Lapua's as well at not completely unreasonable prices considering they builds.

    You could at least fish around a bit and get some ideas.

    Before I commit to anything new in the realm of weapons I make sure I have everything figured out before I start shelling out the cash but I'm on a tighter budget than most long range nuts.

    Depends on the budget and if you are building a keeper or something to resell.

    I never consider resale value because I very rarely part with one.... . As my wife can attest to. Fortunately while she can't really see the need for all of them she's of the mindset that you can't have too many unless you can't remember where they all are... .

    i went the other way.i went with the edge first and now i am wanting to do a 7mmsaum.i built the edge a few months ago and never looked back as this is one kick ass rifle.the 338 lapua and lapua improved are great rounds with really good brass so it's just going to come down to do you feel you can gain that much more with the lapua to justify the higher cost of brass.
