Shawn does use the center feeds with the Laupa round and shawn will in the near future have a sample of the 3.9 center feed detachable box magazine.........
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

To help avoid some confusion, Wyatt's makes both a staggered feed and center feed extended box mag. I really do not care for the CF Wyatt's version. I do like a good detachable CF box mag and refuse to build a Lapua without one. My go to magazine is the Wyatt's staggered box mag for 338 Edge, Lapua feeeding from this setup is a pain. There will be a detachable CF box mag available in the fairly near future with an OAL of 3.900" this will be the hot ticket.

I am very pleased with my EDGE that Shawn built me last year. Its an awesome shooter!

The brass was a partial factor in my decision, however it was the availability more so than the cost. I can walk into any gun store here in town and find 300 RUM brass. None of those stores carry 338 Lapua brass. That may change as the Lapua gets more popular.

Needless to say, I have no regrets.

Lets face it! This type of cartridge for a hunting round is a "One Shot Kill"! I am looking for a long range hunting round. The 338 300 gr bullet is perfict. What about a Single shot Ruger #1 action? Which one the 338 laupa Improved, or the Edge?
