VSSF, great looking rig. Doesn't look like it would be 19 pounds but looks can be deceiving.

    are there any downsides of 5r rifling on an edge? also, what twist would work best with the new bergers?

    Downside to the 5 c rifling ? Well most guys are getting a little more velocity out of them in the same length barrell , there is no guarauntee of this but but it is common from what I have read , not really a down side though and as far as twist I would say 1:9.3 or faster

    My Edge specs are as follows:

    28" Lilja #7 contour w/1 in 10 twist
    Manners MCS-T stock
    Nightforce 5.5x22 scope
    Wyatt extended box mag
    Gre-Tan striker upgrade
    Nightforce Ultralight rings
    Badger 20 MOA rail
    Rem 700 action
    PK brake

    It has no problem stabilizing the 300 gn Sierra's
    Scope and rifle together weigh in at 13.5lbs.

    I have yet to find any downside to the 5R rifling, they don't foul as easy, breakin fast and shoot fast. I guess if those are three strikes, then you should count them out! Personally I find those attributes to work for me, and so does the 9.3 twist!
