    Any interest in 338 edge

    Abe done the rebarrel - yes it is a bartlin barrel
    Robbie tiffen done the spiral fluteing on the bolt
    Greg duley done the stock/bedding and centre feed mag box
    7mmsaum did the load development for the accubonds
    I have never had to rezero this rifle, it simply doesn't move, has been most reliable and accurate rifle I have owned
    I once said I will never sell this rifle it's just to reliable and poleaxes everything
    Weight and pics to come

    There might be abit of "shit" so to speak because Abe done the rebarrel but I think the accuracy speaks for it's self and the fact that it was pro load development and not me just saying it's better than it is

    The reason 3 gunsmiths have had it are

    Abe didn't do spiral fluteing so I sent bolt to gun works
    When I changed stocks Greg duley supplied the new one so I got him to fit it aswell and while he had it got him to put the centre feed it

    Mate. Don't sell your edge! Like you said they are the easiest caliber to get shooting well and they are so reliable it's hard to believe.

    I looked at selling mine a few years back but the missus convinced me to keep it (one of the better stands she has taken lol).

    You'll be looking at the 300 mark, i don't shoot steel with it so doesn't get much use

    The amount of rifles you've sold you must be nearly all gone.
