Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

No , I saw that but I don't believe it. There is little you can do to the throat other than a free bore before it to help burn more powder. Either it's a longer freebore or it's sales talk. A slight change in throat angle does not make that much difference to powder burning ability .
Either way you can fire normal 338 Edge ammo in it .
As I said before If I could afford one I would want it throated to a specific High BC bullet and use whatever velocity it could produce .

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Travis,

You could shoot standard 338 Edge ammo in a +P chamber. It will suffer in performance though. If you take a 338 Edge +P chamber and put your standard 338 Edge load that normally runs 2800 fps it will only run 2700 fps or so out of the +P chamber, but you could do it.

Bullet Bumper

I love when people like yourself make statements based on no evidence what so ever. Our +P throating design is patented, they do not give out patents based on nothing as you have stated the +P design is. If it were simply longer freebore I would have said so. Extending freebore and bullet jump will increase velocity but has its down falls as well. I would think that in the future before you slam someone about their products you might do some research and possibly find out what the product is and how it works before you jump to conclusions and start giving opinion base on a guess. It is actions like yours that make me sorry I have internet sometimes.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

huh interesting

things like this always reminds me of what one of my college math professors said when I took applies stats.

"don't think about it to much, don't ask me to explain it cause your head will explode, just trust me this is the way it works, it'll all make sense later" that was the 2nd day of the semester, that's the only math that's ever made a damn bit of sense. lol

guess some folks could stand to trust the experts a bit

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

I can't wait to see these new rigs get into the hands of some guys on here to ring them out. Looks like it's going to be a great platform. i'm planning on ordering one, but i really want to see what the performance of a 338 lapua improved in +P looks like first


bullet bumper, kind if funny how worked up you are..??
read through the patent info if you want to know more about it. i think you're right to assume there would be work done in the throat, but that was rather predictable. doesn't mean it has to be freebore though.

here's the patent if you want to know more. Firearm Throat and Rifling Method - Patent application

i love new innovation, that's what keeps the gun safe overflowing. thanks for trying something different shawn.
