I think that they are mediums. I don't remember though. Any way I can tell without removing them?

Just from eye balling I'd say they are lows and maybe mediums. The scope just clears the base at the front end which is why I lean towards lows.

Scope height seems to be coming from the base, thus the usefulness or need of the adjustable cheek piece.

How is the recoil without a break?

Re: My 338 Edge

It kind of feels like someone that is very angry with you is shoving you. It's a slow HARD push. Kind of comfortable actually. I have a 8 pound 338-06 and a Browning A-bolt .270 Win that are not quite as comfortable to shoot. The 338-06 has a sharper recoil that doesn't push as hard and the Browning feels like somebody whacked you in the shoulder with a hammer. I can put about 30 rounds through the A-Bolt from the bench and probably 20 through the 338-06. I haven't shot the Edge much yet but I would guess that 10-15 rounds might be doable. I will probably get a PAST recoil shield to wear though.
