Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

JAWZ...got it "standard HS black with grey spider webbing" Thanks, again as mentioned earlier I'm not really a fan of synthetics stocks but yours I really like...I may just have to by one for some kinda future build.

Now if this wind will just leave i can shoot it.
What contour did you choose? Also, how much does it weight?

Mate the gun weighs around 12 lbs . The barrel contour is a number 5 basicly the same as the existing accumark.

MDP,
I know it was a long time that you had to wait. I am real happy for you.

You are sure you will get years of enjoyment out of it. Load her up and see what she can do.

Looks like we may have to have an "EDGE" get together some time this year for all us Aussie Edge shooters. ....................

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Thanks Norm I am very relieved to finally have it. A 338 edge get together is definitely on the cards. Be nice to tie in some Sambar hunting with it down in Vic or else there is Jaws fallow option on our side of the border.
By the way when do you start hunting Sambar again?

We loaded up 50 rounds for the edge yesterday with starting loads at 90 grains of 2217 going up to 92 behind the 300 SMK. We are going to silverdale on Tuesday to run it in and see how it goes. Will let you know the results.
Matt

Matty,
I am sure you will not have any trouble with that rifle, unlike the POS that mine was when I first got it.

If it shoots well with those loads, without undue pressure signs, then all should be good. Don't waste too much ammo at 100 yards. Stretch her out a bit and see what she can do.
