Thanks guys. It took an awful lot of testing for such a simple idea.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

I got the wife to watch the video. I believe she now understands my mania and--at least partially--forgives my indulgences of late. I sure hope so...

What a spectacular accomplishment: the rifle, the shooting, and the splendid presentation. If Shawn Carlock's name wasn't a byword prior-to it sure is now in the world of long--and extra long--range shooting.

In a Siskel and Ebert (?) twist: O'Connor, Page, and Taylor would give him six thumbs up!

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Just read the patent. Been waiting for that explanation ever since the +P was brought up. That's the kind of innovation that takes LR shooting to the next level. Congrats

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Sorry we do not convert standard Edge's to +P without rebarreling and we don't build on guns smithed by other people. If our name goes on it the work will all be done by us.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Dang... I can't lie... I though that it would be hard to shorten up the Edge and make it shoot decent. I shouldn't have doubted it though. When I got my .338 Edge, I took it to the range, took it out of the case, loaded a round, and put a dead center shot into the 100 yard target. Not bad since it rode from Idaho to TX and I never touched it.

A little longer story:
The range is only 0-300 but it had been serving me well for developing a load for my Sendero in 7mm Rem magnum. I took my girlfriend (at the time) with me so we could get her tuned up on her baby Glock .45 ACP. We ended up spending a lot of time on her because she's small and the recoil was a bit much. Anyway, when I finally got a chance to air out my .338 she was ready to go. I grabbed 3 bullets and 3 targets, ran down and put the targets up at 100, 200 and 300, walked back to the bench to get my heart rate back down, and proceeded to punch the target center out on all three shots. Her only comment? That's not bad. Uh, yeah.. I would say so. I'll save you my 1 round hit on an 800 yard steel target story.

If Shawn designs it and builds it... it's a shooter...

PS- Shooting my Sendero just isn't fun anymore... It's 1 1moa rifle that ain't cuttting it
