New Edge At 1250

Had a friend who is a member here invite me up to show and shoot the new edge. This was the first time i have ever got to shoot over 450 yards and what a thrill. Dustin had a bleach jug waiting for me in a field at 1250 yards. I dilaed in and of course missed but it was so darn close. Now using a little windage after a few shots i kept on coming so close then it receive a hole in it. We had another target at 1150 dialed in and hit it the first shot. This gun is so fun to shoot and my friend enjoyed it also. Now i got the lr bug and cant wait to go back. Its sure nice to have a friend only 45 minutes away that has the place to stretch a barrel over 2k. I really didnt believe how far that actually was until i drove beside the field on way home, then it hit wow i actually was shooting that far. Thanks again Dustin.
Mike

    Hey Mike this is Dustin. I just wanted to let all the guys know the gun you have is SWEET!!! I had a blast shooting it last night. The clorox bottle didn't stand a chance at 1250 yds. I've been wanting a 338 Edge for a while and if I do get one I'll have the same gunsmith do one for me. I think you said his name is Travis? He did an excellent job on the rifle. We'll test the gun out at 2000yds soon, hopefully I can get the field mowed to do 2500.... Man the critters on my farm aren't safe.
    Let's see, I have a mark 4 spotting scope I just put up for sale on the site..hmm if I sell it without telling my wife I could start funding the project to get the gun going.
    Just a thought. Thanks for letting me shoot it!
    Dustin

    Starter rigs like the ultramags are fun to shoot and really open your eyes when it is your first time shooting long range. Just wait till you take that next step up to something off the 378 wby, full length 416 case or bigger and you will be amazed. Kinda like flying for the first time. That cessna feels realy good and really opens your eyes, then you get the hankering to step up to a fast ride and wow.
