I love the camo pattern and I'm curious how you did it. Is it a kit? or stencil?

thanks

    I cant seem to Google up a foto of the .338 Edge loaded round. Would like to see what one looks like.

    Great looking pair of rifles you have there . Nice country too.

    SUNDEVIL,

    The actions, scopes, stocks, and barrels all have consecutive serial numbers. The actions I bought as a set, but the other stuff just kinda worked out that way.

    280fan,

    There is a stencil set, but there is also alot of "freehand" taping involved also to get the desired pattern with it. I use the stencils for a base, then I start to tape off the rest. I think it is bulldog arms that I get them from. Duracoat also sells a stencil kit, but bulldog is way less $$$.

    31" barrels and only 13.5 LBS. I have two questions. What barrel contour? And, how is the recoil.

    Wicked rifles by the way.

    The barrels are 1.2 for 4" then taper to .950" at 31". The 3/8" fluting removed a little over 1.5lbs. The stocks weigh around 2.25-2.5lbs with the cabon fiber. I was actually surprised when I set them on the scale. I had to check them on 3 scales just to verify. Recoil isn't bad at all. Shawn makes an awesome brake. I would compare it to about 270 win recoil. It is very easy to spot shots and catch your own trace at 300-400 yds and out. We shot about 50 rounds each yesterday and didn't have a problem at all.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Does that weight include the scope?

    It does include the scope. The rifle without the rings and base weighs 10.5lbs. It is a little heftier though when you load up the magazine with some Edge's though.
