338 Edge build help

Newbie here. Been reading a lot, and want to get started on a build.

The general prospective plan is an action from a Savage 110 in 7mm RUM, with a Brux barrel, and a XLR chassis with a Leup Mark 4 FFP 6.5-20x50.

I'm told this will feed the 250 gr boolits from a mag..

Not trying to build on the cheap, but not looking to break the bank, either.

Thoughts?

Re: 338 Edge build help

Sounds like a great build. I'd try for the 300gr bergers. Seems most like those with 93gr h1000 seated .020 off the lands. My savage 338 build would put 5 under an inch at 300 yards. Not sure if they'll fit your magazine but I think wyatts or someone makes a longer setup.
