    please help, if you have a load for a 338 edge with a 28 inch barrel please advise...

    just made myself a new edge, rem 700 with a shilen select match but its only 28 inches long and has a sako trg 42 brake.

    if you have some pointers on the load development for this barrel please help.

    thnks, from old mexico.

    Eaglet is shooting a 28" Edge.

    He usually checks in on my posts so he may find this and post. Or, you could send him a PM.

    THNKS, AGAIN. this is my third build on the 338 edge but this one is in 28 inches of barrel and all the loads listed I could find is for 30 inch barrels..

    I'll keep searching.

    Same load data as the 30". I built numerous 338-300 RUM's in the late 90's with 28" and 30" barrels. Load data is the same and velocity is so close it just depends on your individual barrel as to which is faster. On average though you may gain 18 fps per inch.

    THANKS A LOT. I have plenty of h1000 and use only 250 and 300 sie-mk's.
