Re: importing the .338 EDGE

At the moment I am living near Penrith, but i dont mind traveling. If you dont mind me asking JAWZ how much is Shane Clancey charging to do the job. And is he supplying the action, stock etc? I have heard he is pretty good.

Re: importing the .338 EDGE

Mate for the barrel ,chambering , action trued break fitted and the gun Durra coated it's about $1200.

I gave him a 300Wb Mkv for the action so i have a HS stock but will change to the A5 when i am sure the gun shoots well enough to justify more money.

I cant wait to go o St Mary's and deafen evryone to the left and right of me with that 30 inch barrel sticking out past the partitions wilst i fireform. i shoul get a couple of rounds off befor i am the last 1 in the range.

Re: importing the .338 EDGE

haha... I dont think I would like to be In that complex when you pull the triger. Will they let you do that ....I thought they had a restriction on the size that you could shoot in there. You might have to go to Silverdale.

As for the stock... is your HS the vertical grip stock or the sporter type? I have both types and have owned an A5.... As far as I am aware the A5 is a fair bit more $ and much harder to come by. The vertical grip is just as good in my book and I payed just under $1000 for it, and seems to be a lot easier to get... had mine in two weeks from ordering.

Re: importing the .338 EDGE

Yep that's what I heard so he is doing my gun .

On another note I went through the copious amounts of projectiles I have and found some 225 partitions to use for fire forming brass . Might use them up at St marys
