Family Portrait

Well, after the F-Class comp on Saturday...we decided to take a family photo. Finally had them all together at the same time. The back 2 rifles are the 338 Edge Twins, and the front 2 rifles are the 6.5x47 Lapua "Mini Edges" as we like to call them. Since we compete with the 6.5's, and hunt with the Edges, they are built pretty much with the same feel in mind. Makes transition easy...

Here they are:

Re: Family Portrait

TMR,
That is a very nice " family photo"
How does the bottom metal differ between the 2 rigs.Asked another way, what bottom metal did you use on the EDGE, and on the shorter cased 6.5x47 Lapua ?
Very impressive collection. I have read on some of your past posts that you did the paint jobs. Beautiful work. Did you also do thr gunsmithing ?

The Edge's have Seekins long action DBM's and the Mini-Edge's have Badger DBM's. We were going to go with the Seekins DBM on the mini's, but already had a number of AI mags laying around from previous projects.

TMR has in fact done all the work on all four of these rifles, as well as other rifles he and I have posted pics of. I'll try to get some pics of the F-class gun he built for me to shoot posted up this week.

Bottom Metal: Seekins DBM
Trigger: Jewell (1.5#)
Barrel: 31" Broughton 1:10 with DE 1" brake

Scope: Nightforce 5.5-22x50 NXS with NP-R1
Primary load: 300gr SMK, 93.0gr H1000, ~2900fps

6.5x47 Lapua (Mini Edge Twins)

Bottom Metal: Badger DBM
Trigger: Jewell (1.5#)
