Anyone shooting the 7 LRM

Was looking into the 7 LRM (375 necked to .284) and wondered if anyone is shooting this and what they think. Thanks

Re: Anyone shooting the 7 LRM

The 7mm LRM is a necked down 375 Ruger but it also has the shoulder pushed back to make a longer neck. There are several here that have one including Len.

I have read several positive reports.


If you do some digging you will find that this cartridge will perform similarly to the 7mm Dakota or 7 STW.

Re: Anyone shooting the 7 LRM

After quite a lot of research and anguish trying to decide which 7MM I was going to build I finally settled on a 7LRM. Just before Thanksgiving I started the build with Jon Beanland. The reamer will be coming from Gunwerks as will the brass. (Hornady now makes 7LRM stamped brass for Gunwerks and is only available through them) I guess that the reasons I chose the 7LRM would be more like splitting hairs but thats what I chose. Jon Beanland has an excelent reputation and has been a pleasure to deal with to this point. We'll see in about 6 months, I hope.

Hopefully mine will be ready in about 2 to 3 weeks if all goes well. I shot one and knew from the second I shot a 3 inch group at 700 yds I had to have one.

Here the website for my gunsmith if anybody is interested Ryan does outstanding work at a very good price.

Re: Anyone shooting the 7 LRM

I really think its a great cartiage and have talked with a lot of people. I only one person who has owned the 7 lrm did not like it but he really could not tell me why. . I will be starting my build after the first of the year. Keep the info coming.

Why or why not?

Do you rent the reamer or purchase it from Gunwerks? Can you tell me the cost?
Thanks
