    A friend of mine ordered a Hart 30" 10 twist and had it in like 5-6 weeks. I was astounded when it showed up early. His is for an Edge project though he doesn't have it done yet.

    Mine has a Krieger 1:10 twist, 28" barrel.

    My velocity avg is just above 2800 fps with the 300g SMK, H-1000 (92g).

    I would give BRUX barrel a try. I have 2 of their barrels. Last one I ordered was a 338 cal, and got it in 2 weeks.

    Is approximately 1200 rounds still the expected life of the 338 edge barrel?

    Not really sure but I'll let you know later this summer.:D

    What I'd like to know is if anyone has had any luck setting the barrel back before actually replacing one. I have quite a bit of room.

    Nonya, my Edge barrel is a Lilja and it shoots very well.

    I went with a 28" HART stainless/fluted, 1-10", 1 size under the sendero contour.

    Using 92g of H1000/CCI250 w/300g SMK gives me 2840fps and 1/2-1 MOA to 1000 yards.

    Last 3 shot group at 800 yards was 5" laying prone w/bipod.

    I expect to see at least 1200 rounds of barrel life.

    My 300 RUM went about 1200 and I think the 338 bore should allow a bit more life, especially since my velocity is only 2840fps, while my 300 RUM I was pushing 3100-3200fps with 200' and 210's.

    I've got about 120 rounds down the 338 EDGE so far.
