Rnd edge 2000

Greetings, I am new at this and would like opinions on a rifle I am thinking of buying.
I have always used .270win for deer and elk, usually within 200yrds, with good success.
Now I want to try my hand at long range hunting.
Here is the rifle I am thinking of buying;
RND Edge - Percision Rifles
Please give me your thoughts.
Thanks.

Re: Rnd edge 2000

Well, I will also use it as a Home Defense Weapon, it has a 10rd mag, as well as hunting large game.
As far a cost, I am looking at just under $5k with a 30" barrel and all the accessories except the pistol grip rest.

Re: Rnd edge 2000

That would be quite a home defensive gun w/ 30" tube. Would you be better off w/ your 870 stuffed w/ your pheasant load?

Re: Rnd edge 2000

Hand guns and shotguns are for home defense. The 1 your looking at is more for suppressive fire. If I was dropping $5000 I would go custume or semi custom with a Nightforce scope, especially since your wanting to reach out and touch something. Just my opinion though. I really like the looks of the RND 2000, just can't justify the $$$.

Re: Rnd edge 2000

Yea, I use handguns for close up work, but my home starts out at the front gate which is fair piece out.

The RND is completely custom and milled on site except the trigger. It is a truly unique weapon. I am thinking of making a trip out to test fire his offerings before I make a commitment.

I was hoping that someone here had some experience with his rifles.
I know that there are a number here that make excellent rifles, I just want something that could adapt to different requirements and environments.

Do any of you have experience with Accuracy Systems Inc. rifles?
I have a Rem 7400 that I may send them.

Thanks for all the input.
Ray

Where abouts do you live? I'll be moving to Loveland in @ 1 month, which is just a little north of Longmont. If you can test fire before hand, that would be great. You wouldn't mind reporting back with your experience would you?
