I build as many Edge's as anyone (probably more) and love them but agree with the guys. If you are just getting going try the 300 out first before you build. This will allow a few things besides learning long range. It will allow you to see what issue you run into and maybe what configuration you like or don't. This is all desirable info before you build so you get what you need the first time.

My 2 cents

Went to one of Shawn Carlocks long range classes a couple of years ago with a .308 win. Shot with some other .308's, a 300 RUM, and a couple of 338 Edges. By the end of the class I made my mind up to get a 300 RUM. My reasoning was more practical than anything else. I like a factory round. Have been putting a 300RUM together since. Once I get the scope on it I will be off and running. The 300RUM will do anything I should be faced with at this point in my long range shooting. THat all being said, the 338EDGE is an outstanding round and one worth considering. Well thats my 2 cents.

338 edge ackley improved

I was going to stay with the 300 rum for now. I contacted Joel and had a A5L stock built. I then talk to Rick at alberta tactical to install a muzzle brake. After some lenghty discussions with him I decided to go all out and have him build me a .338 edge A.I.
