Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

Could someone tell me if Terry Cross installs his hardware for the LoggerHead cheek piece in a customer's stock?

I have a CZ H.E.T. stock that could really use his setup, but I have no milling machine, or I would do it myself.

THANKS!

Good Read.

I don't have any experience with the Lapua but do with the edge. How does accuracy and barrel life compare to the Edge?

I don't have any data on the 338 Edge... However, Shawn Carlock does. He has been shooting it for some time, with great success.

What I was wondering is how the Edge stacks up to the Norma in regards to accuracy and barrel life.
