    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
