338 EDGE For Sale built by Benchmark Barrels - turnkey operation with everything needed - $4100 including shipping to your FFL in CONUS only. Shipping method/case to be discussed with potential buyer. US Postal money orders or Friends/Family PayPal only please.

Do not plan on seperating scope/rifle/Atlas bipod. Package is shooting very well and hate to seperate it. Turnkey operation for someone looking for a ready to go long range hammer.

Atlas bipod, NXS scope, Whidden dies and 37 pieces of ADG 338 EDGE brass (17 awaiting fireforming. 20 have been fired with 9 of those fired one time and 11 fired twice.) all comes with it.

*92g N570 at -.020 with Berger 300 EHs is doing 2802 fps using Magnetospeed V2 and shooting very well, even though I haven't shot precision rifle for nearly 5 months...

Hadn't shot precision rifle in 5 months or so, so keep that in mind.

Zeroing targets are 3-shot groups shot same day at different times (only groups fired that day) from .25-.36 MOA. Next day after felt confident in zero (first time working with this load at distance, so validationm, etc. needed) so went up for longer range shots on targets at 450 yd and 901 yd gongs in shifting canyon winds. 450 yd shots (just took two shots at 450 'cause target is so close) were about 2 1/4" group, and 901 yd 3 shot group was right under 5" and I was shooting those 3 especially fast (Something I never otherwise and don't recall ever doing before on this rifle as I to try to keep the throat in good shape, but I was trying to put some long range groups on target for pix to put on here and wanted them all in the same wind condition. Otherwise always wait for barrel to cool to ambient before next shot taken.). The last shot of the 3 was taken when gong was still swinging and probably enlarged the group because of that.

This is first load I've tried with the new bolt (original Rem bolt extractor went bad so had to order a new custom bolt from PTG). I just tried 92g N570 at -.020 and it shot well. Pretty easy. I think this may be a little hot in the ADG brass as there's the faintest ejector pin marks, but it shoots well.

Group 2.JPG

.25 MOA group of 3. First shot to left of pic was I think the second precision rifle shot I'd take in 5 months. First was over V2 which always changes POI.

Group 1.JPG

Next and only other group shot later on that day was .36 MOA.
