Just to make sure I’m thinking right (been a long day and I don’t have experience with wildcats) the 338 edge is made from 338 lapua?

What is the twist rate?
What kind of trigger does it have? (And pull weight)

edit: I now see it says timney trigger, I must be blind today

Rum brass I believe— but not my sell. Rum Man will definitely drop some good knowledge here!
Oh yeah you’re right. I thought something seemed different but now I realize my mistake.
Rum man, how does the edge compare to the lapua for velocity? I’ve been thinking about getting a 338 for ELR steel shooting.
Also, what’s the process for making the edge? I’ve never had a wildcat before but I’m interested in buying this gun if it’s easy enough for your average reloader Joe Shmo (me) to make.

No sir , it's just a 300 Rum necked up to 338 cal. Simple step to the brass .
Twist is 1/10 . Timney set right now at 2 lbs. My fingers are wore out , if I go any lower I cant feel it . I'm an Old Guy !
It's really a very popular round . Some guys run the 250 bergers or the 285 eldms. I built this Rifle for ELR and my goal was 2 Miles . I did shoot my personal best at 3027 yards so far .
I would have to double check all my dope and adj. But the way it's set up a guy to shoot past 2 miles .."IF " the Wind Gods were on your side that day !

This is a picture the day I shot my first hit at 3027 yards !! Happy Day for my buddy and I . Whoop ..Whoop !
I must admit I don’t think I’ve ever seen 4 rings on a scope before! Is that for the recoil? Or another purpose? That’s really quite the setup! 3027 yards would be what, like 150-250 moa drop? Man... So far my farthest target shooting has been 1100-1300 but I don’t have anything capable of further yet, and I wanted to try some ELR (1-2 mile)

I need to look at my finances since I just took a fair amount of time off of work for hunting, go figure lol.

Yeah it’s a heck of a setup, the 4 rings make it look really cool.
As for the rifle/scope/base, I’m only interested in the rifle and it’s included base currently, not the scope. Well, rifle and the reloading stuff.
I’ll be in touch.
