My APS .338 Edge

Here are a couple of pics of my .338 Edge that Kirby built for me. Specs are:

28" Lilja SS #7 contour fluted w/a 1 in 10" twist
Manners MCS-T stock
Remmy 700 Action
Gre-Tan striker upgrade
Painkiller slim version brake
Badger 20 MOA rail
Nightforce Ultralight rings
Leupold VX-III 8.5-25X50 LT/R w/ Varmint reticle

Am going to do a paint job on it, just haven't decided on the color scheme. Kirby's range test put 3 shots into 2.4" at 650 yds.

    Very nice TAP, what is the total weight of that fine piece of artillery?

    Nice looking rig! A custom paint job will also make it that much better.

    Is there not much difference between 28" and 30"?
    Why did you go with 28"?
    Nice Rifle!

    To be honest, I went with a 28" to be a little more portable in the woods. This is my first longrange rifle and I was living in Mn. at the time I decided to have it built. The area I lived in was was pretty thick in some places that I had to go through. Seemed like it would be easier to get through it not being quite so long.
