338 edge project (my first custom)

Finally all of my parts are in and I am able to start my build. I went to my gunsmith and we talked about the project and he said if I wanted to and I will that I could be their and help with the build this is the first time I have ever had to go to gunsmith. I cant wait I am like a kid in a candy store.

    I'm sure you'll like your rifle, I sure enjoy mine.
    What brake are you using?
    Or are you going without?

    I have the large diameter brake from Defensive Edge and it is amazing.

    Good luck and keep us posted,
    AJ

    I forgot to write it in. It is a holland raidal. I had to rent a reamer and a head space gauge. I have always used commercial catridges never a wildcat and bought my reamers first time to rent
