Re: 338 edge

+1 the DE brake. My 338Edge with the DE recoils about like a .243 Win. It weighs 13lbs, but recoil is nothing (shooting 300gr SMK's at nearly 2800fps).

Re: 338 edge

Another +1 on the DE brake. I had one installed on a 7 REM Mag (Sendero weight) and shooting a 168 Berger at 3035 fps recoils less than my 15 Lb 260 REM shooting a 123 at 2930 fps. IMHO baffle brakes are the way to go for the big boys.

260

AJ,

My RUM weighs in at just under 10 lbs. Just over 10 lbs loaded.

Re: 338 edge

i didn't expect to see this rifle back here, at least not so soon. Actually I was expect to hear bout some great groups being shot at 1000 yds. This is a surprise.
I hunt with a 338 RUM, now there is not that much difference between it and this Edge. I''ve had a fair amount of success with my RUM, actually enjoy shooting it-alot. Last fall I spotted my own it on the mulie I took.
Currently I'm shooting several 375s, a 340 Wby, 30-378 Wby plus some others --- I enjoy shooting, not real good at it but I enjoy it.
Now lets get back to this Edge, its to much for me--I admitted that to myself and Nathan. I use to dread walkin' by the gun safe just knowing it was lurking in there. Every once in awhile I'd get it out thinking it really can't be that bad--that bad boy useta bring tears to my eyes.
Of course there is always the possibility that both Nathan and I are both a couple of pansies and a real man is needed to step forward and buy this thing.

Re: 338 edge

Hey Phil hows it goin i love the rifle it shoots good too, but i also love shooting and i havent got the money to own multiple rifles like this one so ive got to either get alot tougher or move on to something with a little less recoil. In my opinion it would be a hell of a hunting rifle cuz its so light but as far as just enjoying shooting it off a bench, like you said Phil i am probably just a little to soft.


Thanks Guys
Nathan

Re: 338 edge

If something happens and it does not sale i will probably take lightvarmits advice and have it rebarreled to a 300um. I just hate to take a chance on a different break and be out the money and it still kick to hard for me to enjoy shooting it.


Nathan.

Re: 338 edge

My Edge has one of Kirby's brakes and the recoil is about like a .260 or so. I have shot over 20 shots prone and didn't blink an eye as far as recoil goes. Running 300smk at around 2850fps.
