338 edge

Hey guys this is a gun i had just purchased about 2 weeks ago from a gentleman on this forum
the pics you are going to see were the ones he sent me, i promise it looks the same now as it does is the pics. I can take some new ones if i must, it was just easier to download these.
Reason for selling honestly it just kicks to much for me, i guess i am a wus, he told me win i bought it that it kicked pretty good guess im not as tough as i thought. I do alot of bench and prone shooting and this is going to hurt a little more than i expected.
Thanks guys.
Nathan

Re: 338 edge

The barrel is 28 in. not counting the break. I shot 15 rounds in the gun it shot really well at 100 yards thats as far as i shot it. Started with 95 grains of H-1000 and a 250 gr Hornady hpbt and worked up to 97 gr. it shot a 3 shot .345 middle to middle group. The velocity was a average of 3060fps. 3050 was the low and 3070 was the high.

Thanks
Nathan

Re: 338 edge

Have you thought about keeping it and putting on a different brake?

I believe that rifle would benefit from a nice baffle brake for DE, APS, or Straightshot.



I also believe that I have a rifle that has sat on the same green cloth with the same antler through the trigger guard.

Yes sir you probably have, it was being sold by Joel Russo for one of his friends on this forum. I would like to add that the gentleman i bought this from and Joel are both class acts i really enjoyed talking to them.


Thanks
Nathan

Re: 338 edge

ditto what geargrinder said.

I'm shooting a RUM w/300s #2700 +, about 150 fps slower than the Edge. Mine has a DE brake. I'm super confident that going to 250 gr and 3000+ wouldn't be a problem shooting prone.

My 110 LB grand son shoots mine full tilt and does very well.

Just my thoughts.
