Thanks, Wayne

I do not have an Edge, however, when my 300 RUM goes, it will become an Edge! I really like the .338's.

Re: What Would You Do?

I'd go with option e as my budget is small at the moment. I recently bought the stainless 700 rod-reel combo in 30-06 at bimart for $440. It shoots the 175 bergers at about 2700fps @ 1000ft. I'm going try the 210's next, and I'm hopeing to get my most accurate load up to atleast 2500fps. The 190's were accurate, but they were only about 2400fps.

My elk killing minumum is 1200ft-lbs. The last one I killed was at about 1250ft-lbs with the .284 diameter 168gr berger, and I was very impressed.
