Re: .338 Edge bbl life
About 350 rounds through my edge and there is no visible errosion or major heat checking when looking through the bore scope. Then again, I dont hot rod her or even run top loads. I dont shoot too many rounds in a string either. After burning out 2 300 RUM barrels, I find the 338 Edge to be a welcome round. Hits harder at LR to boot. I dont care what others say, the 7 RUM boasts a very short life even if it is glorious. 500 rounds is a pretty good life for it.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
