338 Thunder

What is this round all about? Anyone have specs on this cartridge? Or a website that has information on it? Anyone out there do conversions?

Just curious, my 338 Win Mag is comfortable with 500 yards and under but I keep seeing this Thunder at over 1000 yards.

    I think Kirby did the one you are reading about. It is close to Shawn Carlocks 338 edge. 28 inch barrel @ 2950 fps with a 300 grain 338 MK.

    search for the 338 edge
    and send either shawn or kirby an e-mail about it
