If your going to go to all the trouble of buying a gun and tearing it all apart and having it blue printed, you'd be money ahead to just start with a custom action to begin with.

If you really wanted a cheap Edge. Get a Savage in any magnum caliber, swap the barrel in and shoot.

If you can find an older sendero in a mag cartrige, for a good price, then you will have a decent stock as well, then you just need a good tube installed, action truing and a wyatts box.

The only problem with the savages is mag box length, unless you single feed.

With some work, a Savage can be done in a repeater. Single feed make is easy. I've done them both ways.

All it will cost is $300 for a Stevens magnum rifle and a $350 prefit barrel. $150 for a long action BVSS or Stockade stock. Then you're done. You could probably recoup $100 from the unused stock and barrel.

I am going to sent it to hart and have it done up. I think with a 700 action and a hart barrel it should shoot great. Thanks for the info and the thoughts.

Re: 338 edge!!! on a LARGE budget

It's amazing how people avoid the ridicule from fellow shooters even though the numbers make sense.
