Re: Chambering the 338 Edge

Thanks b93. Topshot, from down under, my eyebrows are up, my attention you've got! I suspect you are referring to Shawn Carlock's Edge+P? I figure I can single load and for my kind of hunting with this rifle that's just fine, but since I have a magazine cut-out I might as well use it when I can.

Your comment regarding the Bergers intrigues me as your whole response indicates mystery ahead. Care to explain? Have you used 300SMKs and if so did you experience the same necessity--that they must contact the lands? I assume you've used a chronograph, checked for high pressure signs, and closely monitored group size at different ranges--care to share? Thanks for your commentary--I think.

I found the SMK's fine to jump. But with the Bergers (in my rifle) they needed to be into the lands for best accuracy.

As for future developements, well just stay tuned. Can't say too much.

In the mean time just enjoy what the .338Edge has to offer. It is an excellent cartridge within its limitations. But that may change soon.
