Hey everyone ! I need some ideas on what to do next for upgrades on my 7wsm mod 70 action -tunned factory trigger- laminate stock-etc I shot alot at 500 m but would like to extend that to 7oo+ last week I upgraded my dies to rcbs gold metal dies for my 7wsm- already sort my brass. hand load 154 interbonds -175 grand slams- but thinking of on round for hunting and long range shooting =168 berger Soo far i have some ideas such as getting my bolt face squared-upgrade my trigger - I have a sheppard scope for the 154 velocitys, but thinking about a cds leopold
whats your budget?i with scott on this one.if your going to square the bolt face you might as well true the action and go with a new barrel unless your confident in the factory barrel you already have.sometimes it dosn't matter how much oney you put into everything else.i.e. trigger,action trueing,brake,ect.if you don't have a barrel that will group all of that work and money is for little gain.
A bedding job and a nice trigger really makes a rifle system. I'm not a fan of the scope you mentioned but I'm sure you will find plenty of guys that like them. Because you reload squaring the bolt face is a great idea & if you don't believe me spin your once fired brass on a turn table and the runout you induced into the casing will be noticeable.
Hello fellow B.C'er (actually Im in Alberta right now for work but cant wait to come home!). I would bed the action, get a new trigger and work up some handloads with 180 Bergers or because your probably in some thick grizz country 160 Accubonds.
Some may jump down my throat, but I would uprade optics farther than a VX-3 with CDS. I think that the whole CDS thing is marginal. If your gonna sink that much money into a scope start at the Vortex PST line and go up from there. I always budget more for the scope than the rifle. Im happy with my Mark 4 leupold, and my Viper PST but would still like to go up a level or two.
