7mm Hart

I can't say that I've had any experience with a Hart built rifle, but I've got to ask what case is the 7mm Hart based on?

Pics please?

I used to go to the Hart Rifle shop in Nescopeck about once a week when I worked in Berwick for three yrs. Couldn't afford a LRH rifle then, but they were always real cordial to me.

I'd like to see yours.

Its based on the 7mm rem mag. SHots as fast as the 7STW in a smaller case it is blown out to form the 7 Hart.

Accuracy load is 73 gr of RL22 with a 140 gr BT and a 215 at about 3300fps
Hunting load is 75 gr of RL22 with the primer and bullet.
It's an improved 7 Rem Mag with a 40* shoulder.

Good Buy.

Bob is a good guy and a terrific rifle builder. I currently have a .30Hart being built by Bob. Now I know why it's not finished, he's been working on yours.

Actually Wally Hart (Bob's father) reccomended I get the 7 Hart for hunting rather than the 30. However I used a 30Hart in NY state last summer to take my 1st whitetail at long range. Bob invited me up on a nuissiance hunt and I was able to take a doe at ~680 yards with the 30 Hart.

I was introduced to Bob last summer by a mutual friend and Bob and his family have treated me so well. Bob opened his house and his shop to me and let me into the world of Long Range. He has taught me so much, I'm almost 38 and if I lived 4 lifetimes I could not repay the debt I owe Bob and Dwayne. They have given me somethings money can't buy.

Not only did Bob put me on the doe last summer, Bob was kind enough to invite me to shoot at the IBS 1,000 yards Nationals in Quantico, Va. last August/September. I had never shot at anything/not even the ground at 1,000 yards and Bob let me shoot 1 of his guns. What a thrill for me. With Bob and our other friend Dwayne Wessinger from Buck and Boar coaching me, I shot fairly well for an ammature. My first group ever at 1,000 yards was 16.5" then improved to 7.7" and 4.9". What a thrill and I will forever be in debt to Bob Hart and Dwayne Wessinger for opening up to a lowwly SICK man and allowing me the chance fullfill my dream of shooting at a 1,000 yard competition.


Enjoy your new Rifle.

Mike Alford
