I don't have a 338 Edge but would figure that group size depend a bit on who put the gun together.

If the top smiths that are here three shots @ 100 would make pretty much one large hole.;)

Here's some test loads with the 300gr SMK at 100 yards. 94,94.5 and 95 gr test loads. Looks like it likes the 94.5 load . Had 7-8fps spread on the Chrony with this load.


These are 250 gr SMK at 100 yards.


1400 yard group with the 250 gr SMK.

What powder were you using behind the 300smk and what was the load for the 250smk? Looks like you got it figured out gamedog.

The 250gr load was 95gr of RE25 @ 2950 fps. The 300gr load was using 94.5 gr of H1000 @ 2870 fps.

I am thinking very seriously about getting a 338 edge, but i have a question about the cases. what cases do you use? and how do you do it?
I hand reload a lot mainly for 223 and 270 which you can just buy the brass for. any information would be helpful
nice group on the 1400 yard target
