I have been shooting a .338 Edge now for some time and love the performance that it offers for long range shooting. This rifle is however quite heavy and although I have back packed it into some remote hunting areas it is realy not suited to being an all round rifle. Where it fails is when I bump into a big sambar stag and have to try and shoot it off hand. Simply impractical to shoot a 15lb rifle with 30" barrel off hand with a 22 power scope. What I need is a standard weight rifle with 90% the performance of the Edge. So I have collected a few bits and peices and will be getting Geoff Grenfell from Bendigo to put it all together. The rifle will be chambered in .338 RUM and sport a 26.5" #4 Pac-Nor stainless match barrel. Out front is a D.E. 3 port brake. Donor action is a Chromolly Remington 700 action from a fairly new 7mm Rem Mag that had a defective factory chamber. Stock is simply a Boyds laminate. Scope is a light weight Bushnell 2.5-16X sitting on a EGW rail and Burris tactical rings. This should to be one of the cheapest builds going, but should also be the right tool for the job. That being, a standard weight rifle capable of applying plenty of thump way out yonder while at the same time, be handy enough to drop a running stag at 50 yards in thick scrub. I will post a few photo's in a few weeks when it is done.
