Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

I was thinking of the edge as opposed to the Lap mag as I can use commonly available actions, without having to go to a custom job. It will be able to use it as a switch barrel along with a 257Wby.
When I get a donor action, I will get onto you about reamers as I dont have one of my own.

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

After talking to a workmate about it last night, I have decided the best way for me to build a long range fun gun is to screw an Edge barrel onto my Barnard F class gun. I have a WSSM bolt gathering dust, so all I need is a mid weight 338 barrel and my rifle will make 1000yd BR light gun weight and not be as heavy as it is in F class spec (9kg).
Anyone selling any used dies, barrel, cases???

You might struggle to extract a tight .338 Edge case with that Barnard action.
