G'day mate !

I had my heart set on a 408 based round ie snipetac, or allen mag, but in the end the budget beat me. In the end I had a edge built off a rem 700 with NF optics for less money than the 408 based rifle only choices.

There is no doubt that the super hard hitting 338, 375 rounds based off the 408 CT case are cutting edge stuff with arguably the best long range ballistics out there. But it all comes down to how much you want to spend. There still seems to be problems sourcing loading components for the CT ? Brass ?

I loved the look of the EDM windrunner and the M 200 intervention.

I wont feel under gunned sitting on the hill with my EDGE to keep me warm.

At least I still have some coin left for a few more mounts this year !

Good luck

This all begs the question. Just what action does Chey-tac use in the M-310?

Hi the M310 is a Lawton 8000 also all of the barrels CheyTac use are Lawton cut rifled barrels.

Cheers Bill
