    I recieved my new 338 edge from Shawn last october quickly verified zero with the load data he provided and went hunting taking 2 whitetails one at 550yards with the 300gr matchking.
    But this spring was able to load some 300gr bergers and do some shooting and they shoot great. Me and my son went up to northern alberta this past week and he was able to shoot a wolf at 300 yards and a nice bear at 525yard's. Both animals were dead right there on the bear there was a 338 caliber entrance hole and about a 2 inch exit. We both do lot's of long range shooting and for 13years old he made a couple great shot's on some pretty cool critters, thank's Shawn for building a awesome gun.

    Hi prariehunter,

    Congtatulations on a couple fine animals. Sounds like excellent shooting. Shawn builds excellent rifles and the 338/300 edge is a chambering that is easy to work with. Great job and I hope you and your son hunt many good hunts together.

    God Bless
