Help me a pick a 338 chambering

I have all my components together to build a rifle in 338 I have a Remington 700 long action that I have already blueprinted. A stainless badger lug and a sweet looking brux barrel blank 9.3 twist interrupted fluted finish at 27" in 338 and a hs stock. I already have an extremely accurate 338 edge and a really nice 338-06 ackley so I'm trying to decide what to chamber this in so I can get a reamer on the way as I do all my own machine work and chambering. So cost isn't an issue. So help me decide guys.

Have you considered an Allen Xpress or another Lapua improved version? Big boost in performance over the edge or standard Lapua (big boost is relative ofcourse)

It looks as if you have both the short and long range covered. I can't think of anything that the edge won't do. Unless your going real big then that 700 wont work.

Was leaning towards the lapua or the Norma not sure if anyone here is running a lapua imp in a 700 I there are I'd love to hear from them. It's a Palma contour barrel gun would finish around 11-12 lb range

Look into the 338-378 other than brass being more expensive than a diamond wedding ring i like the performance. Will shoot faster than the edge. Will be getting mine here soon.
