New Edge Arrived

I guess there is nothing like xmas in May when little brown truck pulled up thursday with my new 338 Edge. I spent thursday eve. admiring it and friday only had time to shoot 1 group after work before it got dark. I was very lucky to have a gunsmith like Travis Redell that took a lot of the fun out of a new build by breaking in the barrel and working the load for the 300 SMK as his standard package. He included a whopping target of a 3 shot group at 100 yards at .122, and i was able to go out and fire a .331. I cant believe how these edges will shoot. My build was very good i made 2 new friends Travis Redell of rbrosrifles and Tim at Broughton barrels. These 2 guys made me feel like my new build was there own project. Thanks guys Travis actually had my gun out the door in 3 weeks after he received the barrel. Today it rained all day hoping tommorow i can take the new toy out and drag race some bullets.
