A friend of mine has been shooting the Edge for a long time, maybe even longer than it has been accepted as the Edge. There was a gunsmith that he knows well that had a reamer built quite some time ago. I really like how it performs but the best accuracy is at about 2780 fps with the 300 gr SMK's. I want something that shoots the 300 SMK at over 3000 fps.
If brass is $3.00 a pop, I guess that's not much worse than a Lapua if it lasts a long time.
The big issue for me regarding the 338 AM was the custom receiver, stock etc. I was thinking the 338 AX could be built on a more conventional action. I guess if I wanna play I gotta pay.
