Quarter Minute Magnums, any one use him?

I am researching a new rifle for 1K marmots. I hunt on the continental divide, elevations between 11,000 and 12,500', so the rifle can't weigh a ton. I spoke with Steve at QMM today. He used to write for Precision Shooting and seems very knowledgeable. His web site shows some very accurate rifles. Does anyone have any experience with his rifles to share?

Haven't heard of them, but if I were in your neck of the woods I'd definitely give Rifle Accuracy Systems a Call. He does absolute first rate work and will stand behind whatever he does for you.

I can't recommend him highly enough.

We have a sponsor here at LRH, maybe two that are in neighboring states as well.

His name is Scott, and his rifles are shooters.

Thank you jpeaston. Do you shoot one of his rifles, if so, how does it shoot, how is the fit and finish?

Scott has built me a 280ai, and a 7 mag. Both awesome.

Have not stretched the 280ai yet, but it shot right under 1/4 moa at 200 yards with the first load I tried. Target on his website. It has also shot 4 different bullets better than 1/2 moa at 200 yards with the first load tried. I am still trying to get through a 100 peices of virgin brass before doing any additional load work. I laddered 59g though 62.5g in 1/2g increments at 300 yards and they all came in touching except the 60g load. I didn't measure it but with 8 different powder charges it grouped pretty well, lol.

My 7 mag, is boring for lack of better words. Consistantly 1/2 moa or better out to 800 yards and really close to half out to a 1000 yards, with a 3.5-4lb trigger.

Fit and finish is great, I had to beg and plead with him to mail me my 7mag when he was done with it, it was my first non-factory rifle. He wanted to strip it down and re-paint the stock because some bedding compound was visible. When I got it I couldn't even tell what he was looking at. To say he is meticulous would be an huge understatement.

jpeaston, are both your rifles tight necked? Is your .280 the one with the Rem. Ti action and 5.5 taper barrel? If so, what does it weigh?
