Why, when you can get it in a 32 inch barrel in 338 Edge +P?
It is going to be sweet looking when you get it all done in hunting colors!
BAD A$$ to the core! I like it more and more the more I look at it!
Because I already have a Lapua and love it and I'm not interested in an edge!! That's why. If I wanted the +P then I would get the Allen express. There isn't anything wrong with it I'm sure it is a fine cartridge I just want what I want!!
We will be chambering in almost any magnum cartridge especially the common long range rounds; 7 rem mag, 7 STW, 7 RUM, 300 Win Mag, 300 Rum, 338 Rum, 338 Lapua, 338 Edge & 338 Edge +P to name a few. Barrel lengths can be had from 26-32" and in almost any profile.
Sorry Mr. Carlock.....I was going to call you on monday and place my order for two, but the damn government SCREWED me AGAIN!!! They said that just because I didn't have ANY of the lottery numbers right, that I don't get the money!!!
The difference is roughly 170 fps - 190 fps. The only difference is our patented throating design, same case, dies etc. The throating process also allows the use of certain other powders that also grab some extra fps.
I may have missed it but could you give me a little more info on the 338 +p
What the difference is between the the two.
Some quotes from Shawn from this thread.
Here is the righthand view some of you asked for, showing the cheekpiece layout for a lefthand shooter. The cheekpieces come in 1/8" increments. As an update with the +P round the throating design is allowing us to use some other powders, we are currently testing a powder that is giving 3100 fps with the Berger 300gr Hybrid, ES of 6-8 fps, 1/4 moa accuracy, and single digit temperature sensitivity. I will release more on this later after we have completed testing as I do not want to prematurely release anything until I am sure it is the ticket (it does look extremely promising).
We fought the motorcycles through 8-10" of snow to get to a scouting / long range shooting spot. The spot is absolutely pristine in terms of LRH. I packed the LRKM in my Ebberlystock Dragonfly pack, much nicer ride on the bike with the almost 12" shorter rifle despite a slightly heavier weight. After a short hike up the mountain to our nest where we can see up and down the canyon we glassed for a while spotting several deer and elk. Looks like they had a pretty good winter judging by their general health (and no sign of wolves). My hunting partner and I looked over the potential shots in the area, most fell in the 800 and in range perfect for his packing weight "Grand Slam" rifle chambered in 7 RUM. I saw several spots that looked like real hot spots and hubs of deer trail activity on a ridge 1326 yards away. Just below the trails was a rock slide the deer were avoiding with a large flat slab rock about 2' by 2'. I had no doubt that hit the rock was a done deal despite never having shot the LRKM at distances over 100 yards yet. I was concerned that the additional velocity being almost 300 fps faster than a standard Edge might change the BC enough to require valadtaion. I used my standard 338 Edge profile and changed the velocity to 3100 fps, I dialed up 28.25 moa and having little wind dialed only .50 moa left. Near the top of the rock was a smal 3"x6" grey spot that I called as an aiming point. I sent the first shot and clipped the center bottom edge of the grey spot. Well once is luck, so I fired 2 more shots, one centered for elevation and a few inches left but still on the grey and the last dead centered in the grey spot making the group around 3.5-4 inches. I was tickeled to death with it. The platform makes field shooting twice as easy as a standard Canyon Rifle mostly due to the rear weight bias. Shooting form the ground with a bipod and rear bag was ultra solid and a confidence inspiring event. I will release load specs and data soon after we get some 2000+ yard testing done. I fully expect to be getting some groups in the 12-15" range at 2K. The advantage of 3100 fps with the Berger 300 Hybrid over the 2800 fps SMK is unbelievable until you shoot them side by side.
