My new Long Range Sickle

After a looooong wait, to me anyway, I finally got my 338 Edge Canyon Rifle from my favorite gun-plumber Shaun Carlock. I've never shot a sweeter gun.

I took it out Sunday to stretch it out.


Here's my LRH kit.


Here's looking back at where I shoot from. Royinidaho, this is the place I sent you the coordinates to. It's just West of Promitory Point. Next time your down visiting your daughter you should run out. I can't wait to get out and shoot this beast again. Just thought you'd appreciate the pictures.

Nice rifle in a great caliber.
You will enjoy that rifle ALOT.

Looks good - thanks for posting......

Looks like a great place to get shafted by mirage.

May have to build target holders 30' tall

Looks like you did everything right- from components to caliber to builder. I have never regretted buying quality stuff once I am in the field. Congrats to you. Send us a shooting report once you have everything settled in.
