    I am planning on having a 338 edge built in the spring and am trying to get ahead on everything else, question is on the brass, which brass do you load to get the 338 edge? 300rum or 338rum? I have about 200 rds of never fired 300rum brass but do I need to start building up my 338rum brass?

    300RUM brass are used for the edge. 338 RUM brass have less case capacity due to being shorter.
    300gr. Sierra Matchkings are the bullet of choice for most who have the Edge.
    H1000 is the powder I use.

    338 RUM cases in a 338 EDGE would be catostophic. They are about 1/10" shorter than the EDGE case.

    Use either 300 RUM or 375 RUM.
