R.Bros. Rifle Review

Had Travis at R.Bros. build me a 7mmWSM this year. The gun is beautiful and shoots great. Felt I should do a quick review. I had some problems with getting the accuracy with my reloads that I wanted, and Travis helped a lot. I must say that I am a Hunter, not a long range target shooter. Many can outshoot me at longer ranges, but I am working on that.
719 yard group prone w/bipod

Winning combination

First victim did not do this rifle justice. Short 130 yard shot with pin point accuracy.

Second victim Cow elk at 531 yards

The 168 gr Bergers really did a great job too. Both were one shot kills.
Well, can not seem to get the pictures to post in the right spot, but at least they are in order.

Re: R.Bros. Rifle Review

I agree as well. I have a RBROS 7 Rem Mag. The rifle shoots amazing and Travis was super to work with. The guy will answer any question you have and really tries to do anything to make sure you are happy with the build he delivers to you. Everything he promised on my build he delivered. Im running norma brass , has to be neck turned, and using 71.5 grains of retumbo with 180 bergers getting 3050 fps in a 26" rock creek barrel

That is a very nice looking stick, I'm digging the pic of the rifle sitting on your pack. Great scenery! Looks like a serious hammer as well. Well done & good shooting.
