    i think that the 1st and 3rd shot were where the gun was hitting and you pulled the 2nd. i would have shot 2 more rounds to see where they were hitting. or maybe u dropped 1 and 3 eather way a guy should shoot 5 shots at thode ranges, if you cant see those groups through the scope.

    Thanks for the picture. I've been looking for a picture of the 338 Edge Improved and the 338 Lapua Improved.

    The difference between the Edge and Edge AI are nominal, the only real advantage I have found is that brass life is better, I believe this to be on account of the 40 degree shoulder keeping brass growth to a minimum.
    The difference between the improved AI Lapua and the standard case is substantial both in brass life but more importantly cartridge performance.
