Re: 338 edge 17 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 338 edge

Just to clarify Jared, my .338 Edge in the Precision platforms vid is .725" at the shoulder with an M16 thread. The barrel is 26" long. OAL with the 285gr was 95.6mm for .2mm jump but the throat has since gone for a walk so it now has some jump but still accurate. Velocity and jump at middle age is not unlike a .308. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D50hQluX9hY [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D50hQluX9hY]

Re: Hornady 243 - 6mm 103gr ELD-X 17 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Hornady 243 - 6mm 103gr ELD-X

Hi mark, this is in essence a high BC variation of the 95gr SST, but with a touch extra weight. This is a very good bullet design. It is limitations are relative to the bore diameter rather than the actual bullet design. Hornady have done their best to provide us with a bullet that retains velocity which equates to more than just a flat trajectory. Couple high retained velocity with a wide meplat and the result is increased wounding potential. This bullet also suits the now common 8 twist bores ..

Re: 338 edge 17 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 338 edge

Thats a shame. When TF started out, there was a major learning curve, much of which you may have read about in my Accurizing book. There were no doubt some barrels in those early days that did not shoot as well as they could and some were truly flat out duds. This was not just about making mistakes, it was a path of discovery, sorting the theory of barrel making from fact. I chose to stick with TF through thick and thin and to help them get to the core of things (again as covered in the book). O..

338 edge 17 months ago by Jared Breingan 338 edge

Just got a few question you guys might be able to help with in regards to my 338 edge I'm having built. Action is a stiller predator Barrel is a kreiger no6 contour will be finished at 28" to start with. Which should be about .730 at the muzzle. Barrrel weight is similar to the Rem Varmint but with more meat at the chamber end and less at the muzzle. Stock will most likely end up being a precision platform. So first question I'm going to have a muzzle brake fitted so what would you recommend for..

Certainly Joshua. Good humor for sure! And yes, I've taken to wearing one at the range as well.

Definitely tongue-in-cheek on the baseball cap and glasses. The boonie is where it's at. I've become a believer on this point, among others.

Re: 338 RCM  Heavy bullet load? 17 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: 338 RCM Heavy bullet load?

HI James Have a read of this thread it might help http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/24/thread/14961.html My take on things is if we look at the smaller say quarter bores and smaller we have to be weary of to much energy transfer and not enough penetration, that's why you have to be careful with matching projectiles to game weights. Now when when we move towards the bigger bores 338,358 etc we have to be careful of to much penetration and not enough energy transf..

Re: The official Remington Custom Shop 17 months ago by Lane Salvato Re: The official Remington Custom Shop "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle" thread

Thomas, Nathan would also insist upon monolithic copper projectiles with an extra tough nose to ensure they stay together and make an exit wound for a nice blood trail over the mountains. One could argue for an extra long box magazine and make it the Tactical Practical. Also, extra light scope and rings to be sure to keep the weight to 6.5 lbs or less, a definite "mountain rifle"!

Re: The official Remington Custom Shop 17 months ago by Martin Taylor Re: The official Remington Custom Shop "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle" thread

With that sort of budget it has to be a SS control round feed Rem clone for me, you get all the excellent design benefits of the Rem and more reliable cycling. So like a Montana etc, etc. with a pinned 20moa rail. Ruger's work very well after setting up but they are over complicated in their designs, way to much going on for me. Pick your adjustable stock its a very personal taste part of the equation, you all know the design characteristics to look for from reading Nathan's literature and watch..

Very funny Luke. I am sure that in the instruction booklet, the words "Hold it like a man" would not go amiss. Both Dave Manson and I are still surprised how fast the Practical reamers have been selling. We also had dies made. Dave's share of the order was sold before I could even make announcements, am not sure if he has any left. I am currently withholding putting the dies up for sale on our site as we have upgraded the seater stem further. All dies whether sold or yet to be sold will be fitte..

I thought the Remington M700 SPS 7mm Remington Magnum was already the unofficial "Terminal Ballistics Edition Ultimate Long Range Rifle" ? :) Remington supplies the rifle part of the kit, Nathan supplies the Book, DVD, and bedding kit to fix the stock, you pick a scope and off to the races we go! I guess Remington could officially sponsor Nathan like those TV gator hunter guys. Could get the stock hydrodipped with Nathan scowling and shouting "Hold that forend ya pansy!!" I would buy one.

I admit to also having lusted over that rifle, and if it were not for the fact I have several older Remingtons that have had close to that price worth of work done to them (price including scope and stock and trigger and....will you know how it goes)

Yesterday I was using my time productively browsing the Remington Custom Shop. Yes dreaming of when I win lotto. I noticed the new Kuiu Ultimate Sheep Rifle for $5895, lots of Kuiu and Carbon bling. Now if Nathan and Remington joined forces to produce the "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle", what would it be? My suggestion would not be the obvious Sendero based rifle but a Practical rifle with lots of Practical bling: 7mm Practical - making it a factory calibre Trued long action Remi..

Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh? 18 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh?

Heck, completely missed this thread till now sorry. OK, what you need to understand is that below 2400fps, heavily core bonded bullets begin to retain energy, regardless of mushrooming. Below 2200fps, the wound channel is directly proportionate to the expanded caliber. Therefore, if you are shooting such a bullet and cannot keep your shots well forwards into the autonomic plexus (forwards shoulder also offers extra resistance to aid expansion), big deer may run a long way after the shot. Rifle a..

Re: Bullet Performance -.243 Winchester 18 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Re: Bullet Performance -.243 Winchester

This has been a very good and informative thread and a timely one for me as I recently got a Tikka t3 in 243 to play around with. I set it up as per Nathan's T3 book/video instructions and it's turning out sub MOA groups with several factory loads and the Federal Fusion 95 gr loads shoot so ridiculously well (1" @220 yards) it is tempting to not reload for this gun... but I know I will have to tinker with it at some point. I am interested in seeing how the 243 works this fall on some deer and co..

Re: Bullet Performance -.243 Winchester 18 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Bullet Performance -.243 Winchester

Hi Andy, the TMK is a good bullet, worth trying on game if or when you get a chance. I covered this in the Cartridges book, second edition. As you get into the bigger animals and depending on your typical shot placement, a tougher bullet can be useful such as your 80gr Barnes. But there are many caveats to this though because the further we shoot, the softer the bullet needs to be. It takes a good deal of investigation to see how one hunter will have success while another will see abysmal failur..

Re: Bedding Question 18 months ago by Martin Taylor Re: Bedding Question

Use it on every rifle l do. Its uniform as long as you heat it genitally wont stick to the compound bind to the threads etc. If you leave it just longer provides a slightly pointed tip aiding to guide into pillar (l fill the small hollow with Plasticine). If it stays behind after you have removed your blind donor & knocked out the action it will simply push out of the hole. As Nathan has said with release, l kiwi polish the thread & shaft before fitting.

Re: Bedding Question 18 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Bedding Question

Heat shrink is OK but you should also put release agents on the screw threads as well as the outer heat shrink so that the screw will come away, one way or another.
