Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)




Here he is just back form the Gunsmith. I will be adding the check piece this weekend. Once all parts are here I will mount the Nightforce base, mount and level the temporary scope and use the 4 rounds of brass I have (the rest are on back order) to start load development.

Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)

Bigbuck,

I will post everything and anything i do with this rifle while setting it up. I have wanted a 338 for over 10 years. I'm happy I was able to finally obtain one. I have gotten a lot of help from many of the LRH members and want to post and show the results of their help and advise. There area many people who are part of this rifle build, I do not want to forget them just cause I have me dream.

Still can't believe I have one.

Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)

Bigbuck,

After speaking with a few people and reading Mr. Carlock's posts on the subject, I will be ordering dies in 338 Edge. Till i save the money needed for them my brother will let me use his. I want to get a die made for the specific round it was made for. I'm a little OCD that way. From what I learned this will avoid some issues down the road around the 4-6th realaoding....with the case not my OCD. HaHA

I agree . you've waited 10 years and from the looks of the rifle you didn't take the cheep route . so, why skimp on the dies
