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

Re: 338 EDGE Build

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:

Manners MCS-T stock
Nightforce 5.5x22 scope
Wyatt extended box mag
Gre-Tan striker upgrade
Nightforce Ultralight rings

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

Re: 338 EDGE Build

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!
