My Edge, First Victim.

Thanks to Shawn Carlock for the Idea and then the emails on how to finish this,it shoots. This groundhog was only at 200yds,but wait and see,can't wait to stretch it and nightforce's program out.

Great group. How bout some specs on that rifle? Please? That definitely is not the stock recoil lug. Really nice looking rig.

Nice shooting....nothing like a little overkill...my brother used his Edge to dispatch a feral cat that had taken over the barn. That Shawn guy helps out alot and provides information, even if he doesn't have to.

Re: My Edge, First Victim.

Nice rifle!! Congrats on the unlucky chuck!!

Only 1 question though, I think I answered it myself, but I see no BRAKE on that rifle and your shooting 300g SMK's??

I have a about a 14lb ready to hunt 338 EDGE myself, and it definately has a brake and still cant spot my own hits at any yardage on 20x. Recoil is still definately there...

I cant imagine shooting those 300g SMK"s with no brake is all, not in a 15lb rifle anyways..
