*****.338 edge accuracy/pics*****

I can't get the .338 Edge out of my head . I have read several good posts on this site that prove to me that the Edge is one great shooter but what I haven't seen thus far is some target photos. If it wouldn't be to much to ask I would really appreciate it if you could post your best groups . If you choose to do so don't forget the details like the range and number of shots fired for the group . I want the edge for my long range elk rifle but I thought it would be interesting to see the targets . Thanks in advace

Edge's are addicting. Extremely accurate, and very forgiving to load for.

Those are Broughtons with a 1-10 twist....the ones I am using now are 1-9.3 twist.

TMR, I have a broughton on my RUM now Tim is a great guy to deal with . Why did you go with the 1 9.3 twist ? When I get my Edge I intend on shooting the berger .338 Would your twist rate be okay for them ?
Thanks

Re: *****.338 edge accuracy/pics*****

I have always used the 1-10 twist and my personal rifles all have 1-10 twist. Tim recomended I go to the 1-9.3 twist. He said they were having better luck at long range with them. I never had a problem using the 1-10, nor has anyone else that I know of, but if the barrel manufacturer is saying it increases accuracy slightly with no downside, then I figured I would give it a try. I will note, that 2 barrels I have for customer builds are also in the 27"-28" range, so the extra twist might help them out also if needed. I would say anything in the 9.3-10 twist range will be perfect.
