    Shooting a couple of 338s

    I took Ashlee up the range today to have a go with the new 338s.
    The weather was poos but not as bad as they reckoned it would be ...yet..
    I made a rain cover for my 35p & it works great.

    One is my 98B Barrett that I have rebarrelled & rechambered in 338 Norma mag, 26-27" barrel.



    The other is a 338 Edge with the same length barrel.



    Both have my Terminator Brakes on them & are shooting 300 Berger Gen IIs at 28-2850

    Here is my Daughter Ashlee shooting them, the Barrett she shot 4 into 3/4 & the Edge 3 into 3/4 including the first one that opened it out

    The quality is abit average as I used her camera & it's the first time I've done that

    Just click on the pic...but I'm sure you know that

    That 'scope looks to have good eye relief? Ashlee looked well back from it. Would she have been getting a full site picture?

    I guess that she had ear plugs in, what sort do you use with those big bangers (I sighted a rifle in today with Remington earplugs in, and have got a headache)?

    Cheers

    I doubt she had a full sight picture, but it doesn't seem to hinder her, apart from finding the target in the first place & moving the rifle between firing.

    They are set up for me & I guess she is used to it & getting better, she shoots very well, as long as she has a rest

    She has Grade 5 muffs on, you can just see the head band under her hair.

    I try to get her to use plugs as well but her ears are still quite small being 12

    Thats great velocity from your short barreled edge, waste of time having a 30'' barrel around when you have that.

    And those brakes of yours have to be the most efficient in NZ -for a 12yr old lass to use like that!. Good on her, my daughter scares when the Kenwood Chef fires up

    Nice Greg looks like the brakes are working well how long before those young eyes are out shooting the old man?

    When she puts her mind to it, it is a very close run thing....

    Ask some off the guys that have shot with her @ the fun LR shoots she has been to, the look of disbelief is

    The best place to spot from is directly behind the shooter & low

    Even then with an efficent brake the blast still can upset the spotting scope a little.

    I always try & keep away from guys the 416 is very anti social

    they'r working out pretty well.What loads are you using? Following on from last time we talked about the edge vs norma I think you should take a hacksaw to the barrels and compare velocitys down to 24"

    The Norma has the edge just.
    Not much in it really.
    It is all about what platform you have, the Edge is easier on the std magnum bolt face.
    I would rechamber a Lapua mag to Norma in a heart beat, I just did that...
    The Norma uses a little less powder & the ES is nuts, single digit easy.
    Both will cruise @ 28-2850

    Blahahaha now theres an understatement

    Bloody funny watching peoples faces when they see Ashlee shoot that enormous cannon for the first time

    & nice to see you finally got that Barrett sorted Greg
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Only got your PM when it was too late sorry Greg. Keen on the brake though, staying in NZ for another year.

    No need for 30 inches now!

    Why did you re-barrel the Barret?
