Re: 338 Edge seating depth: how deep is too deep?

i have my edge bullets oal at 3.950 is this to far???? h1000 gets me 2777 and retumbo 2840 but i have a 30 inch tube.. maybe its to far i'm not sure just want it to shoot... i would think the bullet should be moving a little faster than this????

My Edge was loaded at 3.75" with 91 gr retumbo in a 29" barrel and was getting 2808 fps.

Re: 338 Edge seating depth: how deep is too deep?

My Edge reamer is almost finished. My OAL is north of 4".... closer to 4.1" with the Berger 300 OTM Hybrid. In talking with one of the top EDGE guys, I should hit near 2900 with a 1 - 10 twist tube that finishes at 30 inches.

I hope that new fangled Edge brass hits our shore soon!!!!
