    Thanks,

    I did myself the painting job. Few camo painting cans and a branch tree and leave your imagination to fly.

    300,

    Did you look at using H1000 ? From all the homework I did on the round it seemed 90 % of guys here were. Apparently the retumbo will get them going faster, but more temp sensitive and less consistant velocity spreads ? Only what I am told, so I'm learning as I go too.

    By the way , how did you come up with the custom add on piece to your stock ? It kinda looks like a HS sf1 sendero stock as the base ??

    DUH

    Iwill never exclude H1000, but I have left anotger 4 lb of Retumbo powder, and I want to use it first.
    With retumbo in 300 ultra mag I got 1/3Moa, and i hope will work on 338edge combo also...
    About the hs precision stock...
    I used fiberglass to modified the stock, for beter grip/pistol grip like, and as you see is looking good.
    It is really simple to do, all you need is small'' kitty hair fiberglass''and sandpaper.

    Thank you gamedog
    No it is a HS Precision stock, but I
    added fiberglass to modified the grip and head rest area.
    The original design it was ok, but because I like to have better grip, like pistol grip I did the changes.

    From Wholesalesports, just ask for camopaint in spray cans.
    I used brown- as base color, then lite sand, and on top grass green.
    I used before for my old 300 rem ultra mag, and it works very well.
    On plastic caps from scope covers will go off in time, but you can repainted any time.

    Yes, I'm from Calgary.
    Rich is a great guy.
    You will love your 338AI. Just is not for me yet. To much work to reload, fireform, double amount of work.
    But you will gain extra velocity.
    After you will got yourAI done, how about to get shooting together. I know some nice places where we can strech out this rifles.
