    i have no exp. with the edge but i love my ultra mag. i have consistent 1st shot hits at 1000 yds. 225 nosler ab's and 92 gr. 7828. they chrono around 2975 avg. not smokin but hard to mess with the results. its nothing special just a rem. 700 bdl in lh with a 6.5x20x40 vx3 on her. its a heck of alot of horse power.

    I have had my edge now for 2 days and am loving it. Still breaking in the barrel and seeing where pressure signs start to show. With 300 bergers i have had it up to 94gr. of h1000 with no pressure. Set it up to be a carry rifle and with my NF on it its 11 lbs. Never shot a 338 ulta mag (would be plenty of but the edge has more horse power and is as simple as necking up brass (pretty simple as wildcats go). I have also heard bad reviews of the 300 ultra nosler brass but all i can say is that its great. All weights came in within .5 of a grain and at still not showing pressure id say its some pretty tough stuff.
