Re: Don't underestimate The 7 RUM .
My buddy's factory 700 CDL 7RUM was lucky to shoot a 2.5" group @ 100 yards. Cold bore it was dead-on, but shots 2 and 3 were always a crap-shoot. It has since been rebarreled to a custom 7mm STW.
And you best believe that when I get behind the wheel and try to group one, and it won't group...It's the gun, not me.
He bought the gun used from the original owner (who is a friend of both he and I), and the gun had had less than 20 rounds through it. He put 20 more down it, and called it quits.
Not saying they're all that way. But his was junk. His was a "Minute Of Pie Plate" gun, which is sadly what most hunters in Alabama are ok with, because most shots take place less than 150 yards down here (not for me, of course, I strategically set myself up for longer shots). And if MY guns won't put 3 touching, then I won't take it in the woods till I get it tweaked where it will.
