Here is my .338 Edge with the photo taken in my back yard where I can shoot out past 400m. It is built on a Remington trued action. Has sleeve at rear of bolt for better alignment. Bolt lugs etc trued and lapped. 30" Lilja barrel, 1 : 10 R/H twist, Clancy brake, D.E. cheek piece. N/F 20 MOA steel rail glued and screwed. N/F steel rings and N/F 5.5-22x56 NXS scope with R1 reticle. Chamber is cut long throated to suit the 300gn SMK.
Have shot up to 98 grains of H1000 with no problems but have settled down at 93 grains for low pressure,long case life and better accuracy.
For extreme range target shooting, it also likes a load of 97gn of H1000 behind the 250gn Hornady BTHP match bullet. I use CCI 250 primers.
Game includes, Sambar deer, Fallow deer, Red deer, Pigs, Goats, Rabbits etc.

My Surgeon 338 Lapua. I got it at the end of the season last year so I haven't hunted with it yet. That is going to change next week. Headed to Tx for a week and then back home for spring bear. So far, it shoots great out to 1200yds. but I'll be pushing a little further this summer. Went out tonight to an area I hunt to practice a bit under hunting conditions. Shot this group at 600yds. (611 on the rf) Rt at or just under 2"

300 RUM on a Stevens 200 that I finished up last year. Overlooking some good elk country... too bad none of the elk thought so that day!
