Re: Barrell Length for 338 Edge or Lapua
I also went with a 28" to keep weight down. Its still kinda heavy rifle for packing up and down canyons, IMO. I woulda went with a 30" but I walk to much and 2" of barrel doesn't seem like much, but my rifle is still a little barrel heavy with the 28" + brake. I dont think I"m losing to much in velocity either as compared to a 30" as I'm running the standard load of 92g H-1000 for 2840fps.
As far as caliber, thats all up to you. The EDGE and Lapua are pretty much identical in performance, but if you improve the lapua you'll be ahead of the pack by a little. It all depends on if you want to fireform brass, which is the great thing about the EDGE, you dont have to. Just size and shoot!!
