7WSM 180 Berger takes down two Grizzlies!

Well I helped a few friends built two 7wsm's. There first custom guns. The guns got finished up two days before there hunt. So did not have a lot of time to developed a load and DOPE for them. We did manage to go out the day before they left for Alaska and hit the steel at 1000 yards. I loaded up there IPhones with Bulletflight and showed them how to use it. Also got them a Kestrel 3500 weather station. Feeling confident with how they where shooting, I was crossing my fingers that they would like there new toys and know how to use the program.

Well here are the pictures for there hunt. They are sold the 7wsm and Nightforce scopes.

9 foot Grizzle. 350 yards. One shoot. Dead!

498 yard one shoot!

250 yard one shoot 7 foot Grizzle

    I've seen quite a few bears in NM and CO over the years and they look like cubs compared to those monsters. Great sheep as well.

    Congrats.

    Thanks guys!

    So for them writing up something. I will ask, but I really don't see that happening. They are not the type.
