    I am in the process of planning out and building a 338 edge. I have a pretty good idea of what I want, but I'm still trying to figure out a couple things such as barrel contour. Please post some pictures of your ELR rifles such as your ultra mags, normas, and edges and give a description of components used. Thanks

    Here's my 338-408 Chey-Tac.

    Chey-Tac on Rocks.jpg


    Lawton 8500 Action
    Brux Barrel / 1-10 twist / 1.350" breech straight for 6" then straight tapered down to 1" at 34"
    CSR Muzzle Brake
    McMillan A5 Super Mag / I re-built the butt section to have taper
    Custom Rings and Bases / My own
    Sightron 8-32x56

    Runs a 300g SMK at 3203 fps. I've ran this out over 2000 yards with sub moa performance

    If I had to do it over I'd use a Stiller TAC 408 and the 4 Port Muscle Brake, everything else I'd keep the same.

    Weighs in at 19 1/2 lbs.

    Kevin,

    If you haven't gotten a name for it, I'm suggesting the "DroolerMaker".

    Now that's a rifle! When will you try to break the 3000 yd barrier?

    Not the best of pics, but here's a couple.

    Top:
    270 Allen Magnum
    Rem 721 Action - set up single shot.
    28" Lilja w/Holland QD brake.
    Barrel and brake fitted by Griz. Original 30" Lilja shot out at about 925 rounds.
    This barrel seems a bit "faster" than the original. Gets 3430 MV w/169.5 Wildcats (accuracy load) w/2 grains less US-869 than the original barrel. Apply a bc of 0.74 to that and see whatcha get. Sub 1/2 MOA. Original barrel tested to 1417 yds. This one will be as deadly!
    Stock - prototype designed by me. Hidden in there is a B&C sporter.
    Bipod - prototype designed and made by me. I like solid!!!
    Cheek rest - Another of my creations. Chap leather and velcro w/custom fit spacer/riser. Solid and no screws when removal for bolt removal/cleaning is necessary.
    Rifle Basix trigger - added by Griz
    Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20 X 50 MC
    wt @ 11+ pounds all up.

    Bottom:
    375 Allen Magnum
    Bat M Action (single shot)- purchased from Earl Foracre a forum member
    Pac Nor fluted barrel @ 30" purchased from Earl Foracre a formum member
    APS Painkiller brake. (very effective) and only weighs 12.1 oz.:)
    McMillan A5 stock - purchased from TMR a forum member.
    Jewel Trigger w/bottom safety (kind of nifty safety feature)
    NXS 5.5-22 X 56mm w/40 MOA base. Two sets of NF rings.
    Bipod - by me.
    Strap and carry system - again by me.
    Cheek rest - velcro'd cow hide with hair on it. (makes for messing with concentration with the cheek against that hair. Makes one's mind wander...:D)

    Have only 5 shots through the Pac Nor and have see no copper yet. I have only shot this girl @ 200 yds and set the turrets to what I think will get it on the paper @ 300. That will provide a decent start.

    She pushes the 350 SMK @ 3224 +/- 1 w/chrono @ 11 feet, so she must be pushing towards 3250 a bit. No pressure. Cases may last forever. Using 142.5 gr Retumbo

    Takin' her to MT June 9 and muster all the expertise that will be there. Figgerin' Broz and the boys will get'er out to 1k or better. Really looking forward to it.

    Here is my 338 Lapua Mag built by Kirby. It's one of his Ltwt designs that is very accurate.

    Here is Bertha,

    Remington 5r milspec 300 win mag
    barrel cryo treated and threaded for my suppresor
    changed out the original stock for a bell and carlson tactical
    dura coated the stainless in coyote brown
    vortex hd 5x20 mil/mil on a 20 moa base
    timney trigger adjust to 1.75 lbs
    shooting a berger hybrid 215 (.696 g1 bc) at 2875 fps SD of 10

    only taken her out to 1500 yards so far, Im still not quite satisfied with the accuracy current load will do 5 shots .8 moa at 100, but it will hit a 20x20 at 1500.. With this speed and bullet BC it will do 1 mile (if I can do my part!)
