Magazine for 338 Edge

What would be my best option for a magazine for a 338 edge that I'm having built?? I had an HS ordered b/c I could get one so cheap but they just told me that I'm at least 2 more months out on it (and I ordered it the first of Nov!!). So to heck w/them. I'm looking for other options. I kinda like the detachable mags but would consider a floor plate as well.

I love my detachable other than the stupid raddle when empty.
DON'T cancel your order it might still be here before you find a replacement.
you would think they would be easier to get!!

Re: Magazine for 338 Edge

Bill,

I use alot of Wyatt's mags (not the center feed ones). They allow at least 3.775" OAL. There is a manufacture in process of building a center feed drop box mag that will allow 3.900" OAL and capacity of 4 or 8 rounds in 338 Edge. I hope to have them in the fairly near future.

Re: Magazine for 338 Edge

I know you don't know the answer to this question but I'm going to ask anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]. How soon is the fairly near future??

If I go w/the Wyatt, what bottom metal??? Weight is of concern as well.

Re: Magazine for 338 Edge

Yes it will. I try not to get to wild about these things until I have them in my hot little hands. The good news is that as long as you are using standard Rem footprint bottom metal you can always put one on later. I try not to time frame things because I know how things go.
