I want to rebarrel in a 338 of some sort that will give me maximum performance while being able to use this action and stock and keep it a repeater with a Wyatt's magazine.
I've read lots on the Edge and Lapua/Lapua Improved. I've heard of a 338 Tejas and other improved versions on the RUM case.
Thanks a lot for any info.
The Lapua case is a bit much for the 700. The Edge is very proven with H1000 and 300 SMK's. You will save ALOT of barrel life by loading 300 SMK's and starting at 87 grains or so and working up. You WILL find a sweet spot shortly after.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
