    Congrats Jason, very nice!

    Do you know, or maybe someone else can answer, when you say "sedero barrel", is that considered to be a #5 barrel, or does sendero refer to the contour? Or is it just the same dimensions as a regular sendero barrel, just that it happens to be 30" long chambered in 338 Edge??

    Thanks fellas!

    yama, are you positive that's yours......it sure looks like mine.:D

    Nice stick

    The Sendero he is referring to is the taper.

    Congratulations on the new rifle. I'm having one built too. :D
    I believe the Sendero taper is considered a 5 1/2 taper.
    Happy Shooting gun)

    Nice rifle, I too am having one built shortly, just waiting on the Broughton 5C barrel then I can get started. Mine will look pretty much like your rifle.

    I believe contours are not identical between manufacturers so you need to check dimensions. Mine Broughton barell is know as 5.75 Heavy varmint and is pretty close to sendero taper.

    Rgds, Steve

    i beleive its the sendero taper, left that part up to shawn. i just knew some of the parts i wanted, and he filled in the rest with the parts he recommends.
