Re: Can a 300 RUM be converted to 338 edge
About a month ago I got a 338Edge, built by Chad Dixon. The rifle was built with a Stiller predator action, 30" Brux barrel and a McMillian A5 stock. Worked up a load for it. 96 grains H1000 pushing the 300SMKs at 2950. Rifle shoots 1" 5 shot groups at 500yds constantly. Haven't shot paper at a 1000yds yet but rings 10" steel plate with ease at 1200yds. I've hunted elk this year but did not see any to shoot at. Very confident that it will do the job just fine. Have not reloaded any 250gr. bulletes as I see no need for them. Have not wieghed the rifle but have shot it without the brake and the recoil is about like a light 30-06.
