Re: Change Calibers
Welcome to LRH and enjoy!
The M995 is an awesome action. I have one in .300WM. The .338 WM will do well in long range IMHO with the proper load configuration at a very rea$onable co$t to shoot not to mention barrel life. Long range shooting/hunting varies from end users. Having said that, you need to define what you consider long range. Don't gauge yourself to most of the guys here, they've been doing it for many years ... it does not happen over night. Don't fall into a false pretense that you have a LR rifle and you can shoot at LRs ... not to mention harvesting a game at that range.
I too was considering the EDGE on my M995 about 2 years ago but my gunsmith talked me out of it when I show him the group I was getting.
Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like an old teacher doing a lesson plan but I have a friend that spent over $3K on a custom set up but cannot shoot. The rifle was very capable but the shooter must their part.
Anyways, I'll live it up to the pros on the EDGE conversion. Lots of good folks here that are always willing and able to help out and share their experiences.
Again, welcome and good luck. Happy safe hunting/shooting.
