    Yeh mate he was wrapped with the time he spent down there. Now if he can just give up pearl diving he may get to do a bit more of it.

    And mine is taking even longer. Stupid paperwork. That international import certificate came as a bit of a shock after already having my b709 import permit approved. Once the IIC comes back I can finally apply for the export permit.

    Hi Jawz..

    Since I have an Accumark can you tell me who did the gunsmithing on it? What was it before hand a 300 Weatherby?

    Is it the same smith Top Shot is using (Shane Clancy) that could take a while as he is back logged..

    How does it feed.. or do you single load...? Love to see how she goes on paper etc..

    I was thinking of using a N/Z truflight barrell to speed things up a bit.. Just toying with it at the moment as 2010 project.

    Well i finaly got out to try the out the Edge.

    I fired the old 1 shot clean 1 shot clean regime @ 100m and did the barrel break in ( Had to for warrenty ). Must admit sighting in with a clean barrel each time was fun but i got there.
    After i had it on @ 100m i sighted it in for the 200m 0 and then fired 2 5 shot groups.

    [​IMG]

    The 91grn group was close to the 92 but i made the adjust and go it more where i want it. After fireing the 92 grn group i made a .25 corretion to the hieght and then fired the last 5 rnds at 450m
    [​IMG]

    To say i'm happy is an under statement [​IMG] the gun is shooting .5 or better out to 450m so far and i have only fired 35 rnds.

    Shane did all the smithing and i had the same wait that Norm is having at the moment .

    The gun was a 300 wby accumark and it dose feed although i single round feed it.

    If you are going to build 1 i suggest starting now for next saeson as it takes a while.
