Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Funny that. I wonder what that might be.
In all seriousness though if it wasn't for your help and finding this site I would have never got right into this long range caper and probably would have ended up buying one of those MLR rifles.

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

I know I'm not an Aussie but Kiwis are close enough

I have had my Edge going for a couple of months now & have fired 200+ rounds

I'm very happy with it, I have made it light under 9.5 lbs.

30" Truflight 1-9 sendero profile 8 flute.
Rem 700 action.
McMillan Hunters Edge carbon stock.
Allen 3 port brake.
6.5-20x50 VX3.
Aluminium rail.
Warne rings.

Yeah Greg, Close enough, actually most Kiwi's now live in Queensland don't they? How about you post a photo of your rifle.
How do you find the Truflight barrel, are they any good?
What bullet are you using?
Have you shot any game with it yet?
Should turn a Sika deer inside out.

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

I use 300 SMK HBN coated, 94.5 H1000, cci 250 primers, 2850 fps depending on conditions crony etc, have yet to validate it on Exbal.
Will have an extended mag box soon.
I have only shot targets & rocks so far, no animals yet, scared some rabbits @ 500 odd yards recently

Might have to figure out how to post pictures soonish

Its nicer to shoot with the Edge stock as it actually has a recoil pad not a bit of old truck tyre like the Sendero stock

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

I look forward to seeing a few pics Greg. Its pretty easy with the pics. Just upload them to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket copy the direct link then press the insert image icon when posting and insert link.
I am actually going over to NZ on the 5th of Feb however its for some hunting underwater rather than on land. Doing a spearfishing trip out to White island for a week chasing big kingies then am off to the Chatham islands chasing hapuka followed by few days at Opito bay getting scallops, paua, crays and john dory. Well thats the plan anyway.

My gun is shooting pretty good already. We went to Silverdale and it was 40 degrees plus. There was heaps of mirage too which made the targets slightly blury. Was doing the run in which sucks and only got one 3 round group in at 200. Still went .5 MOA including the fowling round which consistently shoots to the right. It can only get better from there and besides 1/2 MOA is still good enough.
Matt

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Looks pretty good Matt, cheers for the link

I'm waiting for the scope, rings, magbox & light weight firing pin to show up from the states, when I have got them & the rifle is finally in its final form I will post some pics.

I have been using another VX III & the now redundant MK 4 off my .416 on it up till now.
I have a spare centre feed mag box I got from Shawn but the bullets don't need to be that long & the bolt needs to come way out of the reciever to accomodate it, also with the Edge stock not having bottom metal it was looking like it might be a bit silly to use it.

I might build another one & use the Sendero stock & the centre feed box

There is no such thing as to many guns or toys for that matter
