G'day mate !
I would do a search on 338 edge and read the posts. There is heaps to read on the topic. As far as price goes I 'm sure there are budget rifles in 338 edge and the rolls royce deluxe version ? Depending on your demands and what you want your package to be ?
After reading as much as I could on the topic I get the feel that most guys that go to the edge, are after a super high performance, highly accurate rifle. So they tend to get all the trimmings done, triggers, blueprinted, ext mag boxes etc and this adds up.
I weighed the price against a couple of other custom rifles
and felt the edge was extremely good value for money for what it will do.
I think you will probably find a cheaper option with the 300 ultra though ? A great rifle is no good without a decent scope as well to do it justice ??
You will see there are some very helpful and talented people on this site that give freely their knowledge and experience. And like they did for me, I'm sure will get you headed in the right direction.
