Re: 338 EDGE

Shot my 338 EDGE today. I was rock shooting and had a ball. I was shooting 300 gr SMK, oal 3.915", CCI 250, Fed brass, H1000 93.0 gr., 2806 fps. Since you guys are shooting about the same velocity I thought you might like some field dope.
temp 72 deg, hum 18%, bar 28.2, wind 2-4 full to half

969 yards
downhill .98 cos
22.25 moa up 1.25 moa right
first round hit

1371 yards
level
up 39.75, right 2.50 moa
1st round hit ( lucky wind guess )
3 rounds into about 10 inches

1733 yards
uphill .94 cos
up 56.00 moa, left .75 moa
1 round miss low 8 or 10" and left by 3 feet
2nd round correction up .5 to 56.50 moa and right 2.00 moa to 1.25 moa

Even at 1700+ the 300 gr Smk still traveling at about 1300 fps would knock enough dust off to see through the 5.5-22x NXS. Also to note, that once a hit was made at 1733 it was fairly easy to judge differences in the wind and keep up the hits on the 25-30" rock. Of course it is the first round hit or miss that counts. I shot at some 700-900 stuff afterward and it just seems to be very easy after shooting twice as far. I was soon humbled by not reading a full wind across a canyon that I was protected from, shooting better than 1 foot right of my target rock at 741 yards. I missed a 2.00 moa crosswind. All good things to remember but you must stay focused in LRH.

Re: 338 EDGE

Well I have to say that I am still very impressd with the 338 Edge. I did some shooting this weekend with a buddy of mine, he was the one who bought the Mossy Oak camo Edge shown earlier in this thread. We welded up a 14" x 15" steel gong target and set out to have some fun. We set the target up a 700 yards and proceeded to ring it every shot for a ten shots each. It was just way too easy! So the next morning we decided to make it a bit more interesting. We set the target up a 1200 yards and broke out all the gear and set up to have some real fun. Long story short I was able to connect with the target 8 out of 9 shots. The first shot was 2 inches right of the gong with a hit on the target frame. 1 more click left and I was in business for an 8 shot string of ringing steel. Shawn's Edges are great rifles!! Watch out whitetails! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 338 EDGE

I'm looking for some dies for the 338 Edge. Do I have to wait the 14 weeks for Redding to make them or does anyone know where I could get them quicker?

Re: 338 EDGE

Good Grouper,
I have loaded the 225 Accubond at 3490 out of the 30" tube with H1000 but was not impressed with the accuracy. In all fairness to the Accubond I did not spend much time with it. I am a 300 gr fan. I have used the 250 Sierra mk with great success.
