Just ordered a Gunwerks LR1000

After a lot of research, I ended up ordering a 6.5x284 from Gunwerks. Not cheap, but they do a lot of extra work after the build to give you a complete system. I live in the Bay Area and the nearest 1000 yd range is 3 hours away, so I spent a few extra bucks to have someone do it for me. Pretty excited...but now the waiting game starts:(

Congrats! How long is the wait?

Their components are top notch! Should be a real shooter. Let us know how things go when you get it.

Are you reloading for it or shooting their ammo?

It's close to six months. One thing I have to say is that Mike is a good guy. I almost went with a Cooper, but whenI found out that they gave $ to Obama, it was an easy choice. American dollars to an American company that shares my same views. There's nothing better than that.

Bravo! More folks need to invest the time figuring out what the companies they buy from stand for!

I have a LR 1000 in 7mm LRM you wont be disapointed and boy do they shoot. Congrats on a very fine rifle. Im actually thinking about another in 6.5x284.

Joe,

Funny...I was really struggling, even at the last moment, whether to go with the 7mm. I still have doubts whether I made the right decision. Maybe we could trade our rifles back and forth and save the $$
