I have been wrestling with the idea of building a 5-700 yard big game rifle for some months now. I don’t even know where there is a range to shoot 500 yards in my neck of the woods. I understand the 338 Edge and Laupa are great for long range work. I also understand that these guns are going to cost a couple of grand plus to have built. My questions for now are; How does a 338 RUM or Win Mag. Compare down range to the Edge or Laupa? If one could build a sub-moa RUM or WM on a Savage action for half the cost of a custom Edge or similar rifle is it really worth the extra expense of rifle, brass and case prep for the custom gun? Is there a better option for a Savage barrel instillation? Keeping in mind I am not wanting to shoot 1,000 plus targets, rather targets in the 5-700 yard range. Your collective feedback is appreciated.
