I have a friend contemplating a 338 build with the following criteria: -rifle to weigh no more than 10 1/2 pounds -28" barrel -able to take game at a mile. ( he has already taken game at 1350yards) I know the EDGE will do it, as I have seen where Shawn posted a kill at over a mile, but my friend is lookinfg to get alittle foregiveness on the wind read with something faster. The Cheytac case is out as it will push the build over his weight limit, as this will be a carry rifle. I would like to get some feedback based on this criteria. Will the Lapua AI or EDGE AI be the ticket, or would going to the 338-378 Weatherby ? All coments welcome.
