Got my new long range shooter!!

I just recently got my first true long range rifle built. Jim See at Center Shot Rifles worked closely with me to make it exactly how I imagined it. Jim had some great suggestions that in the end saved money. I can't say enough about his work and how great he is to work with. My only complaint is that there isn't two of him. The gun is a honey to shoot with no recoil to speak of and no concussion that usually comes with run of the mill muzzle brakes. I'm currently resizing 300 saum brass down and lightly turning necks to make this thing work. I have about 40 rounds down the tube and have started working on a load. If accuracy will hold I will be running a 140 grain Berger VLD at between 3200-3300 pfs using 215m primers and Hybrid V100 powder. Photo is off Jimís web page. Thanks again Jim!

Great looking rifle. Is that a VX-7?

That looks and sounds like a beauty, Center Shot is not too far from where I live. After all the good things I've heard about Jim and his shop, it's just a matter of time before I see him about a custom long range hunter. Good luck with the new rifle

Cam, yes it is the 7. Giant thing isn't it? 34mm tube 18 power and 20 minute per turn. Probably should have gone night force but I can change it later. So far I like the leupold. Got to good a deal to pass for now. I'm trying to be open minded. It is a real sweet shooter. I really wish I lived within a days drive of Jim, I'd visit regularly.

That thing just plain looks like a whole lot of fun to shoot. A 140 VLD at 3200+ has been quite the performer for us and I'm betting there are some great memories about to be added to your photo album.

That looks a very nice rifle, you will have to let us know how she shoots.
