Fs 338 Edge
Jerry's Gun Shop blue printed the bolt and action, surfaced ground and pinned the recoil lug, and re-chambered the barrel to, at the time, called a 300/338 Ultra Mag. I always thought that was backwards, but my Redding dies are marked the same. What ever you want to call it, it's still a 300 Ultra necked up to 338, with no other changes.
Redding had made a small run of dies (10 I think) thinking Rem. was just going to neck up the 300. Wrong. I happened to snag the last 3 die deluxe set from them.
Brass was the next problem. I finally found one box of 300's loaded with 180 Partitions. I pulled the bullets,(I never told Rem, 19 were 180's, 1 was a 200 gr!) necked them up & shot those 20 rds. 7 times each until unprimed brass became available. The gun, up till now, has only been shot 255 rounds total.
I've got 20 rds. loaded with 210 gr. Partitions. This brass is shot twice, loaded for the third firing.
25 rds. loaded with 200 gr. Ballistic Tips. This brass is shot once, loaded for the second firing.
25 rds. unprimed. Shot twice.
Gun, brass, loaded rounds, and Redding Custom Deluxe 3 die set.
Gun is sold.
