Just type Edge into the search function.

It is a 300RUM necked up to 338. in a 30" barrel, you can shoot the 300gr Sierra MatchKing at neary 2800fps. Don't forget the muzzle brake and double ear plugs.

Re: 300wm or 7mm

I agree with AJ on the 300 wsm. I built one last year for a lightweight carry rifle and getting 3418 fps with a 150 gr bullet in a 24" barrel. That is all a 300 win mag will get and I am doing it with less powder, recoil, noise etc. A buddy saw mine shoot and bought a Tikka light and his does the same as mine. One hole accuracy at a hundred yards. It will not match the 300 win mag with heavier bullets but is close.

I'd get the Savage in 300WSM for several reason.
1) easier to load for
2) 30 cal bullets will always be easier to find in these 'hoarding times'
3) more efficient
4) better barrel life
