Re: 338 Edge - History And Development by Shawn Carlock

I don't like them either. I do like the bolt release and blade ejector. I graft these items on/into a Remington 700 action and use a M16 extractor to cure certain ejection/extraction issues.

    I am confused by the first paragraph about the 300 edge naming.
    Is the 300 edge the same as the 338/300 rum?

    There is no "300 Edge" the 338 Edge is simply a 300 Ultra necked out to .338" or a 338-300 Ultra.

    That would make it the same as the 338 Imperial wouldn't it?

    The biggest reason I did not go with 338-300 RUM was that I did not want there to be any confusion about what it could chamber. There are a lot of people that think the 338-300 RUM and a 338 RUM are the same thing and of course they just are not.

    Hi Shawn,

    I have been reading about the 338 Edge and plan to build one for African plains game. (Safari is booked for July, 2010)

    The rifle will be built on a Montana PH action. Model 1999 Montana Professional Hunter Action

    The barrel will be a 28" Krieger, probably #4 or #5 contour. Contours

    It will be a classic styled African plains game/DG rifle, (3 leaf express sights, banded front sight, banded sling swivel, walnut stock). The action is a double square bridge, so weaver bases will be milled into the action, with a scope mounted on it.

    I hope to get the rifle Magna Ported, as to stay away from a big muzzle break, (for asthetic purposes). I suppose the rifle will weigh in at 10-12# and I want to know what to expect in terms of recoil. I would like to stay under 300 mag recoil (from a traditional sporting rifle). Is this even achievable?

    Additionally, the load data posted is with SMK's. Though fine bullets, I prefer a bonded bullet for Africa. I was wondering if you had some load data for Accubonds or similar bonded bullets?

    Thanks.
