My new long range killer

I picked up my custom LRK (Long Range Killer) yesterday and I went out today to break-in the barrel.
All work was done by Jim See at Center Shot Rifles. I am 110% pleased with his work and customer service.
Components:
Surgeon Single Shot Short Action
Brux Barrel 1-8.6 twist fluting done by Brux
CSR 3 Port Brake
Manners T-2 Stock
Timney Trigger set at just over 2 lbs
Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20x50mm Scope
Burris Tactical Rings, Medium
Pelican 1750 Case
Match Chambered in 7mm SAUM









After I fired and cleaned 5 rounds, I shot a 2 round and a 3 round group at 112 yards. I have not done ANY load development yet, these are with book minimums for break-in only. Needless to say, I am very very happy.

Sweet rifle!!

Curious as to what caliber?? Unless I missed it??

Know its a 7mm since the 168g vld was used, and it looks like a short action. Maybe 7mm WSM, 284 win?

Nice rifle. After seeing those groups, it looks to me that you have a great shooter.
Was wondering also what caliber is it?
Thanks for posting.

Re: My new long range killer

I knew I forgot to put in something. It's a 7mm SAUM. I ordered an adjustable cheek piece today from Jim See, the cheek weld isn't where it needs to be. I can't say enough about Jim See at Center Shot Rifles. This is my first custom build, so I had lots of questions. Jim always took the time to work with me and offered his opinions when I asked. He never tried to push me towards using certain products, because he sells them, or any shady business practices. I will be using him again.
