Re: 338 Edge - History And Development by Shawn Carlock

You could rechamber the Abolt but the magazine won't accept it and there are some other issues. I don't recommend it. 338 RUM fired in an Edge chamber ABSOLUTLY NOT .

Re: 338 Edge - History And Development by Shawn Carlock

Customer wants to learn long range shooting and has this Abolt that was given to him by a family member. He wants to make this rifle into a long ranger and is a beginner who will study at Thunder Ranch. Any Ideas on what to do with this rifle to make it toe up for an accurate long ranger? What about 338 Ultra? The barrel is only 24" and a standard Browning, He will rebarrel if necessary. Your expertise is appreciated...

Re: 338 Edge - History And Development by Shawn Carlock

Hello Shawn, Chuck here in Boise. I have tried emailing you but for some reason I guess your not getting them. Here is my question for you. I have a sendero 300RUM, in my quest for finding a good load I have put quite a few rounds down the barrel, I have not taken it to a smith to have it bore scoped, but plan on that soon. I have heard the 300RUM's have a fairly short barrel life, 1200-1500 rounds down the tube. I am probably at 800 rounds right now. So when the barrel is toast, if I were to bring the gun to you what could you do with it??? 338 Lapua or 338 Edge?? am not sure which is going to be the best route and of course money will also be a factor as I am unemployed at the moment. The gun is just about set up the way I want it, would like to get a 20moa rail & rings for it and have also been looking at the detatchable magazine. As we speak the gun has a jewell trigger and a 6-24x50 sightron scope. So what would be some options of what you could do to turn that into an extremely accurate long distance killing machine. Thanks....Chuck
