Re: 338 Edge and Long Range Gear

Thanks for the kind word Sniper2 and DucksinAlaska Shawn does so fine work, very fine work. I would recommend the Edge to anyone that wants to get into long range hunting. Shawn's customer service is second to none in my humble opinion.

Very nice oneshot! I've got the same Eberlestock pack and really like it. Carries my Edge really well.

Your pictures makes me want to go out and shoot my Edge.

Re: 338 Edge and Long Range Gear

Bill,

Radial fluting will make the barrel less stiff but as long as the minimum diameter of the flutes is reasonabley stiff you are good to go. Radial fluting does in fact work much better at heat dispertion then standard linial fluting. There is some theory that the "fins" also dampen the barrel vibrations, but I believe that to be theory that is as of yet unproven.

Steelhead,
I really like the Eberlestock as well to me it is very comfortable. I saw the pictures of your Edge as well and it is a sweet looking rifle. I really like the snakeskin look very nice touch!

Re: 338 Edge and Long Range Gear

Thanks oneshot! I'm really enjoying my EDGE. Shawn did a great job on the paint. It looks even better in person than it does in the pictures.

I like the radial fluting on your rifle. I thought about having that done to my rifle, but went with the traditional fluting at the last minute. I'm not sure why I changed my mind at the last minute, but I'm still happy with the decision I made.
