savage 110 ba in 338 edge

Ok how long before we start to see the gun smiths converting this gun to a 338 edge. Or would it not even be worth it.

Re: savage 110 ba in 338 edge

i was think the same thing but i think the magazine lenght still limits its possiblities and the edge is a cheap mans lapua but with this rifle it takes away the cost of a specail action/bolt and its $1900 rifle was thinking well see alot of 338AI lapua which will nudge out the edge

but if savage would well just an action this would span some edges

Re: savage 110 ba in 338 edge

The 110 BA is chambered in 338 lapua which is a better cartridge than the 338-300 ultramag you call edge. Why would anyone want to go backwards. What you may see though is people running a 338 lapua imp reamer into it making it better than either the 338-300 or the standard lapua.

The Lapua is not a better round than the 338-300 ultra it is simply more expensive to shoot..LOL The edge has the EDGE..

Re: savage 110 ba in 338 edge

The reason Im asking about the edge is that I have a 300 rum already and I dont want to have to buy expensive brass. I can get the savage for about $1500, what would I have to do and how much would it cost to change the savage lapua to a 338 edge.

Re: savage 110 ba in 338 edge

Reloading 338 edge is cheaper than reloading 338 lapua. The edge brass is cheaper (300 RUM remington brass) and often used up to 8 times before discarding it.

Look at the cost on 338 lapua vs 338 edge with a 1000 round down the tube(saving the brass vs unsaved), which one is cheaper? I don't know but if you figure it out, you know the answer if its worth it to rebarrel it to the edge.

Lapua and edge are both proven to be accurate easily past 1000yd.

Good luck.

I don't understand why you'd buy an overpriced rifle to save money on brass.

You could buy a Stevens 200 for $250, a prefit barrel for $300-350, a Stockade stock for $300 and have a way better rifle than the BA.
