Looks like the rifle is behaving well.

Re: 300 RUM or 7mm with 180 bergers at 3000 fps

Great thread! I learned a lot from all your guys contributions. This LD thing is kind of addictive! I'm about to pick up my first mag cal, which will either be 7mm RM or 7 WSM next week. After dialing it in, paper, deer, and pigs will be the quarry.

Not sure if this is the right place to pose the question but:

From what I have gathered here, it looks like RL25 or H1000 is the choice for the 175/180s, but I will start with lighter bullets. (I also read somewhere that H1000 is somewhat temp sensitive?)

But I will be starting off with lighter bullets like in the 140 - 162 range. Looking for best accuracy. 24' or 26" barrel stock gun, not custom.

So, anyone got some suggestions for powder/primers? (I've been using Fed 210 match primers in my 270 & 243 with good results.)

Thanks for all your previous informative posts! And the pics of targets and dead pigs

IMR7828ssc, R25, H1000, Retumbo, Magnum, etc. I've had best results with 7828.

Travis built this rifle you will not be disappointed. You have by now, with yor conversations with him, found that he his one of the best men you will have dealings with.
Welcome to this love that all of us on this web site for Long Range Hunting.
Keep practicing. Save your money for a new barrel when this one is burned up from all the shooting you will do.
Travis is building ALL my guns from now on.

How in the world are guys getting these kind of speeds with a 180 out of a 7 mag? I shoot a 162 amax with 69.5 gr of H1000 and getting only 2990 MV. My chrono says much faster, but my drop table at 600 yds says another story, which is the 2990. I'm shooting a 26 in Hart with a 9 twist.

Call Travis at RBros rifles. He will be happy to explain it.
