Re: Where to buy/ hire an 338 Edge reamer??

For me the Edge was a no brainer. RUM brass is much cheaper for me than Lapua. Standard magnum bolt face and will work in factory bottom metal. I have not fire formed any brass yet but the capacity should be close. HS and Seekings both make DM bottom metal for either round on a 700. I think the Seekings has a longer box though.

Youre not wrong, Lapua .338 brass is NZ$5 per piece!, I can pick up Nosler Custom 300RUM brass for NZ$2.10approx

Has anyone here used the Nosler Custom brass in the Edge or is the Remington adequate?

All this info is great and I really appreciate it, I am not aware of anyone in NZ having an Edge so all the info is off this site, cheers

I'm going to be using Remington Brass to start. I've got a pile of it (I have 3 other RUM's). The Nosler brass is suppose to be top notch. I will try it also.
