This rifle has 250 documented rounds. Shoots the 300 gr SMK'S @ 2850 FPS.
Rifle with scope as pictured weighs 12.6 pounds. You will not find a better package in this weight range with the down range foot pounds of energy and is a joy to shoot.
I easily have cold bore shots at 1000yds and have taken this rifle out to a mile.

Will split out components if buyer of rifle does not buy them.

Don't really shoot many groups, but did shoot a 2" vertical/ 2 1/2" horizontal 5 shot group at 725 yards last year. So, I guess it groups pretty good

Re: R bros 338 edge

That sounds very encouraging, but if it didn't shoot many groups, how did you do load development over 250 documented rounds?

Is it a single shot? If not, what is the max OAL the box will take?

What is your load data?


Thanks!

Re: R bros 338 edge

Load development took less than 20 rounds. The rest of the rounds were shot at distance verifying drop and fps, and having fun . I have a pic of a target at 100yards with a 5 shot group that measures .382 C/C, but cant seem to figure out how to resize it on photobucket ,in order to post it.
I will say that a 5 shot group at 725 yards that measures 2 1/2 or less is all you really need to know about whether it shoots or not.
yes, it is a repeater.
Loaded rounds fit and feed in the magwell, no problem.
Load data goes to the buyer.
