Getting the export permits has become more costly and a bigger pain in the but than I had anticipated. I think that I will get any future projects built here just to save the hassel
    Is your edge being built in the US or here in Aus?

    Hi Matt,

    As Jaws said, I am having my EDGE built by Shane Clancy. I gave up the idea of importing a rifle as the Aussie dollar dived and the taxes were excessive.
    I am sure that Shane will build me a quality rifle.

    I also plan to have him build me a quality light weight rifle. Most likely in 7mm WSM for the more rugged areas.

    Jaws, you will have to let me know how your EDGE turns out! When do you expect it to be ready?

    If you blokes want to come down (or up) for a get together and hunt Sambar then put up a proposal. I am always keen to get out into the scrub.

    Excellent Sambar.... Very Impressive! That 250gr just devastated. What a great mount you'll have, congrats.

    Cheers,

    Re: Aussie Sambar hunt success

    Thankfully I paid for most of my build when the dollar was at 93 cents.

    Unfortunately the State Department is making it extremely difficult for US

    manufacturers and their OS clients. There has been huge increases in export

    licence and permit fees. In a time when they should be doing everything

    possible to encourage exports to help their economy the Govt is too

    preoccupied with its anti gun agenda. I have heard that Lilja has to pay

    $250 per barrel that they export and also had to pay the cost for barrels

    exported before the rule came in. What a joke. Oh well looks like Shane will be

    getting a lot more business as will non US and Aus barrel makers.



    When a few more of us get our new toys some sort of get together would be

    great. Even if its just to socialise and do a bit of longrange practise.



    A quality lite weight gun would be nice. The price of the edge meant that

    I had limited funds for another sambar gun and so opted for a Tikka T3 lite in

    300wsm. It is not in the league of a custom rig but for a bash around sambar

    gun in the thick stuff I am more than happy. I do have a remington in

    30/06 that could find its way off to a gun smith in the not too distant future

    though. Just have to decide on which caliber. These custom rifles are

    becoming very addictive.

    Matty

    My new lightweight 7mm wsm is nearly finished. Stock turned up yesterday so will post when i get it home
    Should be the ticket for those big beasts and still have the legs for a long shot if one presents itself

    Hopefully my "longrange" 7mm wsm tactical hunter will be ready soon then i can give that a workout too.....maybe catch up with you blokes for a shot
