Re: 338rum to 338edge

How about a .340 weatherby built on a Rem 700 to an edge? Does the bolt face work?

Re: 338rum to 338edge

You would be amazed that some rifles shoot when they come from the factory. There are a whole bunch of issues that come up when you work with factory barrels and actions. That is why we "blueprint" actions, and install custom barrels.

How did that sloppy egg shaped chamber shoot in the first place? It was deemed safe and acceptable by Remington. BAAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAAAA!

Re: 338rum to 338edge

The 340 or 338 Win Mag to 338 Edge is a much better punch out since you have some meat to work with and are taking a full cut to the end of the chamber. However if the barrel has flaws or the chamber is not square with the bore (very common) or egg shaped it is hard to recover from that. My suggestion even for the $$ minded long range guy is to hold your water and wait until you can rebarrel with a high quality tube. Once you have done this you'll never be sorry.
