    I would like to sell my 338 Edge. It is built around a Pierce Titanium Action. The list of parts includes:

    Pierce Titanium Action w/ Slab Cut on LH side
    Ti recoil lug
    Lightened bolt option
    Benchmark #5 contour, fluted, 1:9.5 twist, 28" and threaded 5/8"-24 and has a muzzle brake
    Black CeraKote
    Manners T-A stock w/ the forearm lightened and fluted, aluminum pillar/devcon steel putty bedding
    PTG BDL bottom metal
    Timney trigger

    The round count on this rifle is 70 rounds. I did some initial break-in/load development and shot a few groups. I build this rifle while working at Pierce Engineering. I worked there for a little over year and did all of the CNC work. I made this action, bolt, bolt handle, bolt knob, bolt release, recoil lug, and firing pin. I did the chamber work and also threaded it for the muzzle brake, which I also made. I bedded the manners stock and also did the lightening to it and the flutes. I know this rifle inside and out.

    Included with the sale will be NEW redding dies and 100 pcs. of Nosler custom brass. This alone, is worth almost $400.00

    Parts and labor in this gun total about $3,700.00

    I am asking $3,800.00

    The pictures of the groups were taken just last week. The wind was whipping. This rifle shoots much better than I do. The flyer is due to me not being able to call wind on the open prairie with no indicators. I really hate to send it down the road, but I need the money and have other projects I need to finish long before I will be able to put this black beauty to use. (That's what I call her)

    This was five shots @100 yards. I also shot at 500 yards and had 1.5" of vertical dispersion, but one shot went 8" to the right because of the wind dying.

    Scope, rings, and bi-pod are not included. This rifle is for sale in other places, including locally. I will accept a personal or cashiers check. Please understand a two day wait period for the check to clear. It will ship the day it clears and is deposited in my account. There will be a 3 day inspection period. Buyer pays for shipping and insurance. If the rifle is refused, me, the seller, will pay the return shipping and insurance.

    I hate to see it go, but like I said, I have many more pressing needs for the money. My GI Bill is going to run out soon and I have quite a bit of school left. I'm hoping to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering and I used a lot of my benefits on gunsmithing school and the Brownell's Trinidad Third Year Gunsmithing program.

    I will re-chamber this to 338 Rum if it is the difference of a sale.

    I weighed it without the scope and it was about 8.5 lbs. I had It in a hunters edge McMillan and it was about 7.25 lbs., but that was just too light. Even with the brake the recoil was substantial. I opted for a little more weight to offset the boom. The weight with a scope would depend on which scope you choose. I made that brake at work. It closely resembles the APA fat bastard brake.

    This is the group at 500. The wind died and I totally missed the call.

    After shooting that 3 shot group, I shot at this prairie dog target I made and centered it. This gun can shoot, as long as the shooter can as well.

    I just received my barreled ti action from pierce in a 6.5 creedmoor. You guys have a great action. Mine was cerakoted purple. Still waiting on my T5 from manners. Gonna wait a few months and order another ti action. It cycles better than my Gap. Good luck.

    I really enjoyed working there. We had a lot of fun and I got to have the satisfaction of guys like you telling me how much they loved they're guns, knowing that I made almost every piece of it. My wife had a much better career opportunity in Colorado though, and I missed Colorado and wanted to go back to school, so I reluctantly had to leave.

    Low ball offers will be publicly posted from now on. Do not act like you are doing me a favor by offering to take it off my hands for over $1000 less than my asking price. I am at rock bottom on this rifle and don't have to sell it.
