Re: Every part together for my 338 edge except...

Savages are cool to work on. I am building a 338 of some type myself. Either Edge or Norma Mag. Most likely the Edge. I've been looking for stainless long actions for sale on the cheap here recently.

Its hard to find a stainless savage long action...at least someone who wants to get rid of one. A buddy back home has one in 300 rum with a large shank I been trying to score off him for years. If he ever sells it to me I will have 2 edge's then

Re: Every part together for my 338 edge except...

I finally received my bbl about a week ago and got to do some shooting yday with it. I couldnt get the accuracy i wanted from the 225 SST or the 250 sgk, BUT THE 300 GR NAB was the ticket! At 150 yrds it will do 1.1", only using a front bag for rest. Im pleased so far and will try to "tweek" the load a little more this weekend.

Re: Every part together for my 338 edge except...

I have 2 questions for 318..... First I'd like to say good looking rifle. My first question is how long did you wait for the the barrel? I've had a 7mmRem mag on order for about 6 to 7 weeks now from McGowen. Next I was wondering were you got you cheak riser or what brand is it. I've need one for my sendero. Thanks, Danny W.

Thanks Wachsmann!

I ordered my bbl Dec 18/2012 and it was originally ready March 25 or so. The barrel didnt pass QC check so they immediately cut me another and had it around April 4.

The cheek rest was one I found on amazon and comes with a nifty little pouch too. Amazon.com: Tactical Black Color Cheek Rest w/ Detachable Magazine Pouch For Mauser k98 Mosin Nagant Remington 700 Ruger 10/22 Remington 700 Howa 1500 Mini14 Ranch Rifles: Sports & Outdoors. This week I will hopefully have time to get out to my buddies farm for some 300, 400, and 500 range shooting. I think I found the load the rifle likes, now I'm gonna slowly document all drops at 50 yard increments from 300 to 1000 yards!
