Shawn and Bob over at Defensive Edge just spun this one up for me. Here are the specs.

McMillan Game Hunter Edge Fill Stock. Pillars and full bedding.
Stiller TAC 338 single feed Action with 1.125" Barrel tenon and their 20 moa rail.
Hart 26.5" fluted sendero contour stainless barrel, 1 in 9 twist 5 groove
Chanmbered in DE .338 Terminator +P
TI PRO 3 Brake
TriggerTech Diamond trigger at 1 1/4 lb.
Nightforce F2 ATACR 5~25x56 bedded into 1.00 34mm NF ultralite rings
Weighs 11 lbs 5 oz scoped.

Dialed in with 100 yard zero sending 265 gr. Cutting Edge LazeMax lather turned bullets at 3211 fps. average.

She was spot on this morning at 577 yards and 907 yards using the REVIC BR4 ballistic range finder. So she should be ready to fill a few elk tags.

Just in time for elk season. That rifle should take a few and it looks nice to boot.

That’s a slick lookin rifle right there! That color combo has really grown on me. I just put a Game Hunter with the same color on a little 243 I put together.

Looks like a great rig, and appearance wise about the same as the 300 terminator build I’m collecting parts for. Thoughts on McMillan vs Manners? I was thinking EH1 or EH1A for my build

Virginia,
"Wicked Elk Lord" There's nothing walking away from that hammer. Nice rifle and we know the guy behind it knows how to use it.

I believe you also shoot a 338 Edge. How do the ballistics compare between the two...

You going to take that Ti pro 3 off for a few rounds to compare braked vs unbraked? 😆. Very nice looking rifle.

Couple months ago, I was shooting my Canyon Rifle 338 Edge +P next to 2 guys with LRKM 338 Terminators. I was 2900fps they were getting 3100. All of us had Hart 30" barrels, Berger 300gr. My load uses H1000 they both run N570
Sorry to derail

This rifle is a hit all over the inter web and racking up the death certificates.

Nice looking rig broz. That thing is gonna be some serious elk medicine. What's your opinion on the plus p? Considering sending my edge to Shawn to try to get some more fps. Im 2850 at sea level
