Here is a photo of my 7WSM that was built by Travis. Antelope and two groups shot at 100 yards. Travis builds an accurate rifle!

Re: R.Bros. Rifle Review

Thanks for the coments everyone. I know this rifle can out-shoot my ability. Looking forward to improving my skills. Right now all I have been shooting is the Berger 168 gr VLD with a healthy load of H4381sc. I want to try the 180's, but presently do not have the time to experiment. Here are the specs.

7mm WSM - R. Bros
R Bros Rogue Short Action, Hunter Port, Fluted Bolt
Broughton 1-9 twist, 5.75 Contour, Fluted, 26"
McMillan HTG Stock (per specs below)
13.5" LOP
Swirly - 60% olive drab, 30% tan, 10% Black
2 forward sling studs, one rear stud
Decelerator pad
Thumb wheel adjustable cheek piece
Textured fore end and pistol grip
BDL Floor plate
Jewell Trigger 1.5lbs
20 MOA Rail
Pillar Bedding
OD Green Gun Kote metal
Nightforce NXS 5.5 - 22 x 56mm
NP-R1 Reticle
Zero-stop

Weighs about 14.5 lbs field ready. In the Eberlestock X3 lo drag or gunslinger packs you really don't notice the weight. Until you strap on 45 lbs of meat to a pack that weighs about 35 to 40 lbs without the Rifle.

Thanks again Travis

Thanks
Bill
