Winmag,

This is a Brux Barrel with what they call "interrupted fluting". Trueblue turned me onto Brux and this fluting, It looks really nice. Brux is great to work with and delivered what i asked for. I will use them again when I rebarrle my 300 RUM in a few years.

Thanks, Ive seen it a couple times before, but never caught what you called it. Very cool. Looks sweet. How much (ball-park) do they ding you for a barrel like that?
And does it cut down on wieght considerabely, or is it more for helping cooling, and good looks?
Ive hered of Brux before, but havent ever looked into them. How do they stack up compared to say, Lilja, Hart, Shilen etc. for accuracy?
In the mean time, Im gonna try and find thier website.

Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)

Winmag,

From what I hear Brux was started by a guy who worked at Kreger/Kriger Barrels. He wanted to start his own business so he did. This is the first Brux (and first after market barrel) i have owned. With shipping the barrel ran 385.00. Not sure how much weight this fluting takes away. I needed a gun a bit lighter than my brothers since I will not always have his horses to pack my gun (like he does). Brux competes with the other barrel makers without any trouble. My brother has a Brux that is going on his 284 Thor that is being built as we speak. Check them out I really like the guys at Brux the are GREAT to work with. Cant wait to send them a barrel report once this guy is scoped up, and I get a new trigger on it. Hope this helped.

Welcome

Re: 338 Edge (in pieces)

Here it is as complete as it will be until I have saved up for a Nightforce with NPR-1 reticule. Just have to level the scope, work up a load and sight it in (already bore sighted with a Leupold bore sight). It has a Bushnell 3200 5-15x40 AO with MilDot reticule with Anti Cant Level, Nightforce 20 MOA base and Burris Signature Zee rings, And a Timney trigger that arrived today.

Have not decided if I will paint the stock yet still thinking about it. Can't believe it's ready to shoot. It tips the scales at 12 lbs if my Cabelas fish scale is correct. I will have to find a certified scale for a true weight.

Again I would like to thank my brother for all his help and time, Trueblue for his time and talks on the phone that helped get me started (and stay) in the right direction.

Thanks Len for hosting a GREAT sight, it has been a big help with this and other projects, and Sawn Carlock for his time developing this round and his products that I used to make this build possible.
