    Top shot, yep the brake works very well, i was explicit in what i asked for when i gave instructions to MAB in which they were quite accommodating. They say they can do anything you want...

    Only thing is the recoil pad on this HS precision stock is quite hard... might have to change it for a softer one...

    Accuracy is great so far, havnt shot it past 300m yet, but groupings at 100m are very tight...1 hole clover leaf if i dont mess things up... ive ran upto 94gr of 2217 getting up round 2950fps but i was getting ejectors marks on some cases so ive settled at 93grns seated 10thou off the lands...

    MAB did all the metal work, i simply hollowed out the stock and a little grinding to accept the heavy bbl and extended box mag.

    AND, If anyone knows where is can get a 54in gun case to fit this thing inside, please let me know as i cant find anything long enough!!!

    Mine just fits into my gun case.
    Its that muzzle brake!!!! just cut two inches off the end of it and you will be right to go! LoL

    I can't get very good accuracy out of my rifle up near 2950 fps and have backed off to about 2850 fps. But if you can get good accuracy at that speed then good luck to you.

    The H-S kick pad on mine is the same but I find it quite OK. Mine seems to be getting dug into the dirt a lot now days so I like a tough pad.

    Maybe get a limbsaver pad?

    Mate I still go to silverdale because I'm shooting the edge and they haven't band it yet. Also my gun is only a 300 RUM well atleast that's what the head stamp says.

    I would look at a cabelas black powder hard rifle case. I think its about 55-60 " Or get a Tac Force Stryker 62" drag bag and off you go. I use a dbag as the monster hard case is tough to get in trucks !

    I would avoid taking the brake on and off as it'll only give you grief coming loose. Next minute you turn around and its gone..

    Well after a long long long long wait my DE 338 edge is finally in Aus. Will be ringing customs tomorrow to hopefully get an idea of how long it will take before they release it. Fingers crossed there are no issues and everything goes smoothly. I was thinking about all the other crap that I have bought to go with this gun. I would hate to add it all up but I think I know where all my money has disappeared to.

    NXS 5.5-22x56
    ACI and anti cant top ring
    Diect mount
    S series bipod
    3500 kestral
    PDA
    Leica rangefinder
    Swaro 15x56 binos
    tripod
    tripod adaptor
    Eberlestock operator pack
    300gn 338 SMK projectiles
    300RUM brass
    CCI primers
    ADI 2217 powder
    Thankfully me and Jaws have been going halves with the extra reloading gear needed.
    Gees this longrange hunting is expensive.

    Hey Norm it sounds like you have finally got your gun to shoot after your mods. Nice work mate you must be so relieved. It must have been a mission.

    Matt
