Thanks Gamedog,
They actually feel the same and have pretty close ballistics to the Edge out to 1K., and will save a little barrel life on the big 338's.


280fan,

All metal is coated with Gun-Kote and the stock has Duracoat base and Duracoat matte finish clear.

What bullet/powder are you running in them sweet looking rifles? How are they treating you accuracy wise?

eddybo,

We are running the 130 bergers and 130 JLK's through them right now....velocity is just over 3000fps...I have been running Ramshot Hunter and H4350. Either one is very accurate. Jesse is still breaking in his barrel on the Lawton rifle, but mine has around 600 rds through it. I will post up some groups tonight. At 100yds I have some 3-5 shot groups that measure between .352" to around .450" outside to outside measurement. I normally end up with 2 or 3 in the same hole or cutting eachother, then I get excited and pull the last shot. It will definitely shoot 1/2 MOA if I do my part. I also have some 5 and 10 shot groups at 500yds that measure under 2" under windy conditions. I haven't shot this rifle off the bench that much other than to do some chrono work. My last shot fliers could be from me moving while on the bipod ???. I shot some steel targets over the weekend and put around 5 or 6 clips through her at 833 yds....when we went to put the steel away, all shots were in a group size around 5-6". Kinda fun watching the trace drop into the same spot each time. Very happy with this little guy so far.
