I came across a 338 Edge built on a Model 70 action with a 30" Lilja stainless fluted barrel and Harrell break. The gun sits in a B&C sporter stock, which I would swap out for a McMillan or Manners. Has 50 rounds fired plus 30 loaded rounds and 50 brass. Also comes with dies. My buddy said he would sell it for $650. I have been planning on building either an Edge or Lapua to begin with. So is this something I should jump on

The current owner has built me half dozen wildcat ARs all sub half MOA and is currently building me a 264 WM. So I have full confidence in him. My concern is the action. I'm not very familiar with the M70 action. I have always built on M700 or savage.

For that price I would buy it. If I didn't like it I think I could get that money back.

$650?!? So, a stack of cash or is some other payment preferred?

Yeah, I'd jump all over it.

Thanks for the replies. I told him to go ahead and send it with my 264 mag when it's done. Now time to figure out what scope I want.

This is the 338 Edge. They are waiting in the reamer for my 264 then it will be ready. I have a Stockade stock waiting on it and a Vortex Viper HS-T 4x16 on order as well. I'm using a Blackhole Weaponry barrel for the it as well.

The M70 is a great action!
The best group I have shot was on a M70......1.108", 3 shots at 565yds..
It was a 6.5 wssm re barreled by pacnor!
Don't hesitate to use a M70..
