I am building a 7x375ruger. with a #8 28" bartlien 9.5 twist 5r. I am thinking i will use a Lawton action. Does anyone have experience with this caliber? any suggestions on trigger, stock, rings and scope. looking for a 1000yd max gun. any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
The accuracy I have gotten with my Lawton action is excellent, and it feels nice. HOWEVER, one day I took it out shooting and it wouldn't eject a shell. Tried several times, and looked at the bolt face. No ejector there anymore. Lawton responded once, to several requests for service, nothing since then from them. There are plenty of good actions out there, this is just my warning.
The rest of the components should do you just fine, a longer barrel would no doubt increase velocity more if it's not to be a mobile rig.
its gonna be a mobile rifle. gonna try to limit the weight as much as possible. thinking of murphy's titamuim rings and mount, not that it will matter that much. what other action is as affordable as Lawton? anything close

I had one built using a Stiller TAC 300 action and a 28" Broughton 5.75, 9twist, 5c that I'm just getting broke in. I had Gunwerks do the chamber work, fit the barrel to the action and Cerakote everything. They call it a 7LRM, and they use Hornady 375 Ruger brass that finishes out with a fairly long neck at 2.5" total case length. I started loading at .010 off the lands and 72grs. of H1000 and a 215m gave me 3057fps, 72.5@3088, 73.0@3114, 73.5@3153, 74.0@3187 with no signs of pressure. After shoot and clean for 8 shots I am ready to start shooting some groups at 73grs and working up or down to find the sweet spot.
Oh yeah, I'm using a Jewell trigger, Ptg bottom metal, Greybull Precision stock, Seekins Precision rings, and my tried and trusted Bushnell 4200 6-24X50 for load development until I get the funds for a new scope for it or the 7mag I took it from.
