I have the lower one in the pic, and in fact I was shooting clay pigeons and remnants of clay pigeons at 900 yards last night in a light/variable wind. I have to be honest that when I started last night I had no intentions of shooting that far, but then the clays started talking trash and it was on! Took about 4-5 shots to get dialed in on the first one, then hit two more in a row The last one I shot at another 5 times and missed every time.....but it was only a half of a pigeon so I wasn't too dissappointed.

This gun is just so fun to shoot, kind of makes me smile every time I pull the trigger..

Not a .338edge but a .338Lapua AI

Built on a nesika action with mike rock bbl, Built by Long Ranger on this site, so far at 327 yrds (300m) I have been consistantly getting 1/2 inch groups..... More than happy with that and the 300gr SMKs...

Rick does awesome work..

So far, we have not seen group size change with virgin brass vs. fired brass. I will say, I have a few cases that are on the 7th firing, and the primer pockets are getting a little loose. Those will throw you out of the group.
