338 Edge (in pieces)

Just got the Brux Barrel on the 7the of April, it was the last part i was waiting for. I had to take a pic with every thing laying out. I know it is not the usual gun pick but I could not wait to share.

I am in the process of choosing the gunsmith who will build this gun. I may have found one 8 minutes from my house.

Hopefully the next time you see these parts they will be all together and have a scoped mounted on it, and have an awesome target showing that i am the proud new owner of one HECK of a long range hunting rifle!!!!!!! Have been dreaming, saving (and selling guns and other stuff) for this gun little over a year. Have wanted a .338 cal gun for over 10 years.

Stats:

30 Inch Brux barrel with interrupted fluting
HS Precision PSS stock aluminum bedding block
Rem 700 Long Action (From 300 RUM)
Wyatt's extended box magazine
DE recoil lug
DE muzzle brake
DE cheek piece (not pictured)
Floor Plate, spring and follower (from 300 RUM)


Thanks Robert (my brother) for your time and assistance with this build. You will be the second shooter of this boy when he is all together.

Thanks Craig for allowing me to shot with you. You will be one of the first to shot this boy when he is done.

I can not forget Jim (Trueblue), his time and advise he provided over this last year. I can say if it was not for Jim and Robert I would not have the chance to have this rifle. Thanks you two.

And I do not want to leave out LRH its members and its founder this site is a good resource for knowledge that has assisted me and many others with there builds, Thank you all.

Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)

Jim,

I found my smith localy, he was highly recomended by another smith who is no longer building guns. He has done some work with some of the Special Forces Groups and has won 200 yard bench rest compatitions with the guns he has built.

He showed me a 5 shot 200 yard group that looked like a raged .30 call bullet hole. That group won him a 1,100.00 action.

I dropped off the action and he has started installing the wyatts box mag, blue printing it and lapping the lugs.

I will order the 338 Edge remer tomorrow.

Thanks again Jim for all your help and advise with this build. You started somthing very good with that sale, and at least two have benifited from it.
