    will this work for a 338 edge build or do you have to move up to the 8000 or 8500?

    Yes, it will work for the 338 Edge. Check with your gunsmith for absolute confirmation.

    There web site says you need the 8500 for a 338 Laupa magnum.

    I'm pretty sure 264win was asking about whether or not the 7000 would work for the 338 Edge, which is based off of a standard magnum case head diameter.

    But I agree that the 338 Lapua would best be mated to the larger Lawton action/bolt.

    264Win, the action will work perfect for the edge.

    Mike,
    The 338 Edge is the 300 RUM case necked to 338 w/.550 head diameter while the 338 Lapua is .590 head diameter like the 416 Rigby ao the 378 Wby. That requires a larger action. I have built a 338 Edge on the 7000 Lawton and it is well sized for that round.
