Either way it looks like a nice rig. Im looking at rebarreling my .338 RUM to an Edge soon.
After doing some research a lot of people told me that with this particular break in this caliber, I should expect a recoil like a 30-06sprg or similar, but this damn thing kicks like a mule. It's not like i'm getting rid of it because of that. I'm just a little disappointed.
I had my gunsmith to install a Wyatt's extended magazine box, but can`t fit ammo larger than 3.700" Maybe the wyatt's detachable magazine will allow a little larger bullets.
I'm only complaining about the looks of the ammo, looks a little odd with the bullets seating so deep, but the groups are amazing (3/4" @ 325yds). This was with the first load we tried. Hopefully we can get a tighter groups with more press work.
All the work was made by my gunsmith back here!!

It`s around .680" I bought it with the barrel to a buddy here @ LRH. He gave me the barrel with the brake already turned and installed. I personally like the break to be bigger than the barrel, specially the ones that are a little squared.
Between the Defensive Edge and the Muscle Break which one do you guys think would be better??
