Shooting the 338 EDGE

We had a long range shoot at Parma Rod and Gun club yesterday. Targets were placed from 200 yards all the way out to 1167 yards. I used my .308 on everything inside 1000 yards, but when it came time to shoot the 1167 yard target I brought the EDGE out.

Temperature was 40 degrees, wind 2 to 5 mph mainly from behind us, but from the streamers we put out by the target, the wind appeared to be coming from the 9 o'clock position most of the time. I dialed 32.5 minutes up and 3 left windage, but over shot the target. I then dialed down 2 minutes and proceeded to smack the 18" wide by 30" tall target. By the end of the day I had hit it 15 times and some of the others in our group were able to hit it with 4 shots from 300WM's and 1 308. When I went to retrieve the target at the end of the day, you could definately tell where I hit with the 338. I was pleasantly surprised to see some nice tight groups no bigger than my fist that were definately 338 hits. I wish I would have had a camera with me. We had a guy there taking pictures, but he had left before the shoot was over.

Anyway, I'm very pleased with my 338 EDGE. This May I'm going to try a 1 mile shot.

Good shooting, the Edge made a good showing... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

I am very interested in your results at the mile mark.
I have a 338 Edge built with a 30" ABS barrel and plan on shooting the 325 grain wildcats. Ihope to enjoy the big performance of this round soon

How long did you have to wait to get the barrel wrapped after it was delivered to the wrapping faciility?

Re: Shooting the 338 EDGE

JD338,

Yes, anyone is welcome to come out and shoot. Our next shoot will will be "off site" at Paddock Reservoir on May 4th and 5th. At this shoot we get to shoot at extreme angles, across canyons and at some really long ranges. This is the shoot that I'm hoping to put a target at 1 mile.

Re: Shooting the 338 EDGE

I'll definately post again when I shoot the mile shot.

I'm interested to hear about your ABS barreled EDGE. And the 325 gr bullets. Where did you get these bullets?

Re: Shooting the 338 EDGE

Which Parma are you referencing?

I'm "steelhead" and Parma in the same sentence points me at one, but am not positive.
