    Did you go with the 1-9.4 twist for subsonic stabilization.

    Mine is a 338 Ultra mag with 30 inch Broughton, heavy palma contour 9.3 twist 5C with Jim See's muscle brake on it. The barreled action weighs 9.5 lbs.

    I got the stock bedded and sanded but it still has to be cleared. So it hasn't been shot yet.

    Re: 338 EDGE Build

    my edge is still in parts but my component list is as follows :
    Broughton 5C 1:9 twist heavy palma @30 inches may cut to 28
    R700 Action
    badger lug
    badger knob
    4 port muscle brake with top slot
    Manners T5A stock
    Nightforce NSX 5.5-22x56
    Seekins DBM for .338 lapua
    mounts are yet to be decided as i want the ken farrell setup but the rings are always out of stock so it may be nightforce or leupy mark 4's
