advice for 338 edge barrell

I was looking into a Douglas barrell to use on a 338 edge. I was wondering if anyone else has used a Douglas barrell before? I see they do not have a 5R type of barrell. Does anyone suggest using a 5R barrell? If so, what type of barrell is the best to use?

I have used 5R .338 edge barrels by Broughton,Obermeyer,Benchmark and Bartlein.All shoot well, but not any better than my Lilja 6 groove. Gary

I had a 338 Lapua with our 9.5 twist 5R and it shot great, I would definitely go that route again with any of the 338's
