It is but you can build on a short action if you don't mind it being a single shot and pulling the bolt to eject a loaded round. i'm building one on a old 110 action hope it turns out as good as this one
I'm new here, what case is the 338 edge built off of? I have a Rem 700 action 30-06 bolt face, It would not work then on this case?? sorry if these are dumb questions.
First welcome aboard there is a lot of great info on here.
The edge is based off of the 300 rum (Remington ultra mag) it's what Remington should have built. the only thing that is done to the case is the neck is stretched out to a 338. Most people including my self are shooting the 300gr smk out of it at about 2850- 2900.
AJ I did not think a Savage could look that good. It seemed like you just picked a load and went out and shot those groups. I wanted to ask, did you get those groups with the first load you tried? Or did you work up loads to get those results.
Yep, I just used the standard load that Shawn recommends and it shot THAT GOOD! With the cost of components, I don't think I'll look any further.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
I know this has been idle for some time but I have a quick question. I build a similar rifle with the PacNor barrel and was wondering what you did for barrel break in? I'm about to send my first rounds down the tube. Thanks for the inspiration on the build.
