    Here's a few photos of a my new Edge. These test rounds were 250gr SMK's with necked up Rem brass. Need some good dies and 300 SMK's next.

    Nice rifle and great shooting!!! From the testing we have done so far, I don't think you will find a bad load with the 300's. It will be a matter of trying to pick the best load. It really doesn't seem to matter what load we throw at these things, they still shoot great. Who did the smith work? Looks like there might be a few Edges terrorizing the wildlife this fall in Montana. Although, I think we are going to try them out on prairie dogs first this spring. I have a place at the North end of the Little Belts. Have fun with your new rifle.

    Thats some fine shooting there brother !!

    I'm just starting to shoot at these ranges with my edge too. Have you primarily used the bench at these ranges or have you tried the bipod, prone, rear bag combo ? just interested to see if you find your groups are better one way or the other ? One thing I can see is that the 300 smks from my gun make a hell of a lot bigger marks on my gong than those 250's. You just gotta give them a go mate !

    DUH

    Great looking rifle and fotos. Somehow if a rifle looks 'like' an Rem 700V or M40A1 it's sooo much nicer (than some of the wild creations I see here that more resemble a butcher block). Good job!!!

    I would edit that. Don't associate me or my shop with comments like that. Smiles or not some people take that seriously. Besides, If the plates said TRGRMAN people would know who realy was doing the shooting in those pics.
