Re: Pictures of big heavy longrange rifles -let's see them.

You aint building a BMG off of the 700 action but you did ask to see big long range rifles
50bmg on the left, 375bmg on the right. Both have new homes these days.



The 338 edge is the big gun in the safe these days, This one is built off a Ruger action.



My go too long range rig for years has been a 6-284 built off a remington action, I dont shoot it often but it has always produced good results.

    You'll get nothing in the BIG LongRange Thumpin' range on the Rem 700 action.

    Short range, you betcha. 375 H&H and other African Cartridges.

    Check out a 357 Allen Magnum. Nearly identical to a 357 Snipe Tac. (Timing of two great minds

    BTW, the bullet selection problem will, I'm sure be remedied. A 375 or 400 class high bc projectile will bring this cartridge into its own. At this point the 375 is about the same as the 338 Allen Mag but with more energy.

    Whew-wee you guys have some nice rifles !

    The reason i mentioned making the gun way heavy is to beat back the recoil -i am trying to not use a brake on the gun.
    How heavy '"ballpark guess" would a 338 edge shooting a 300gr bullet need to be to have recoil similar to a sporterweight 270 w/130gr bullets ?

    And what size barrel contour and length can a chrome moly remington action support ?
    If i could use a 30" sendero contour -i could just forget the barrel block thoughts.

    I bet you guys use your rifles to pick up chicks -laf.

    Thanks for the pictures and info thus far keep them coming if you have them.
    Mike

    You can build an edge fairly cheap. And it can be a hammer too
