Re: 300 wby converion to 338 edge
You could re-pipe to a 338-300Wby if you wanted to play with your current brass......
The Edge is based off of the 300 RUM wich has a 404 parent case. It's not belted.
But as far as re-barreling to an Edge, I don't see any reason why a smith couldn't do it. You may need to add an extended box mag to get the length for the big pills tho.
I've wondered if there would be any similarity to the Edge performance with the 338-300Wby actually.
There's a greater difference in Wby's exterior case measurements than there is between the 300RUM, & the 338RUM, but I dunno if Shawn moved the shoulder forward or not on the Edge. I also don't know if he blew any taper out (if there was any taper to blow out...?)
Interesting idea tho. I like where your goin with it, cause I've always been curious myself.
