Re: 338 EDGE Build

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
