Im building my dad a 338 Edge and I have never used a barrel this long on a Rem action. I just wanted to see what you guys thought about this: 1.250 for 5" then smooth taper to .900 at the muzzle 30" OAL. I have only used barrels longer than 26" on Bat and Nesika actions so I really dont know what the Rem700 action, Pillar bedded, Free floated barrel's max length and contour is, esp. the accuracy and how well the action will be able to support the barrel in a pillar free floated setup? I would love input on using a V block bedding in front of the action to support very long and stiff barrel, I know Kirby Allen uses some sort of V block setup!! If all you Edge owners could give me your thoughts on this barrel contour I would appreciate it!
