338 Edge OAL

Guys,
I ordered a 338 Edge from Shawn yesterday and had some questions. Since it is Tuesday he is closed so maybe one of you can tell me.
My set up is like this.

Rem 700 LH
McMillan A5
30" Hart (may switch to Lilja) straight taper .975 @muzzle
Detachable box mag
40MOA NF base

What is the OAL with a 300gr SMK?
How Long are the box mags? (internally)
If any of you have something similar does it feed ok?

Chase

    I have a new 338 Edge from Shawn:
    Rem 700 SS action
    Hart 30" barrel
    Jewell trigger
    DE Brake
    DE recoil lug
    DE cheekpiece
    DE bolt release
    HS Precision stock (tactical)
    Wyatt's box mag
    NF 40 moa tapered base
    NF lw rings
    NXS 5-5-22x50, NP-R1

    Shawn's recommended recipe for the 300 SMK's calls for a COL of 3.785". No feeding problems at all with my rig. I have only put 60 rounds through it so far, but what a sweet shooter!

    The only problem has been getting brass and SMK's.

    The box lenght depends on which one you are useing. I have a 338 Laupa with a detachable box and I can load to 3.93 if memory serves.

    I run mine at 3.775 for the smk and 3.950 for the 265 AL tipped 265 wildcat. I have the centre feed wyatt and feeds both lengths fine. I would recommend you get the wyatt ext to keep every possible option open to you. I have the 30 " Hart and can speak very highly indeed.

    DUH

    Well I was planning on having the detachable box mag. Shawn said it was a little over 3.9" so it sounds like it should be ok. Man I cant wait til Feb!! About the brass and bullets, Shawn was saying you can neck down 375 RUM brass. He did say you might want to do a little neck turning though.
