Re: Just ordered my 338 EDGE

Mate,i think he has made the right choice,the Tac 338 was designed for the 338 lapua sized cartridges,it is 1.450" in diameter and uses a .750" bolt which is not needed for the edge,the Tac300 is a rem Long action clone but it is designed to work with the wyatt's or extended mag system as the mag ports are cut longer.

Re: Just ordered my 338 EDGE

The Dummy rounds I sent up cycle through beautifully, all i'm waiting on is another brake once thats here, off to get Cerakoted and then into the hills.

Once your Edge is built you might like to read this article on loading for the .338 Edge. I am sure that you will find it helpful.

Handloading the .338 Edge, a reloaders guide.

Sounds good Aussie LRH

What brake are you fiiting? How many more sleeps before you get it?

Ant,

It's nearly two months since Sig542 wrote you.
What's the latest lowdown on the Giles build?

Re: Just ordered my 338 EDGE

MMMM

If my memory serves me right the TAC 300 uses Remington mag boxes . The Predator takes the Wyatts boxes. There is a spacer you can fill the rear of the box in on the Predators if you want to use a remmy box mag.

Yes the Tac 338 is a lot bigger.. I have one on order and my TAC 300 arives this week. Another mates TAC 338 is coming with my TAc action.. They are sweet dont worry.

I shot the APS 338 Edge build recently. very nice on a Stiller TASC 300. For the Edge I would say get the Predator as the new wyatts box will fit.

I can feel a 338 Lap improved coming on..! Barrel is ordered and in the system

Ant,

What's happening with your build. Have you got your muzzle brake, should have had it by now. What's the story from Giles's side of the fence.
