7mm AM

Hello everyone i am new here. I am looking into purchasing a custom built rifle and I love long range flat shooting rifles. Right now I am shooting a .30-378 wby accumark and I love this gun and I just want to add to what I have. I have been reading up on the 7mm AM and was interested if anyone out there shoots one and has any info for me on this gun and how you like it.

Re: 7mm AM

Don't own one but owners on this Forum report they shoot like lasers with heavy for caliber bullets. They excel at long ranges using high BC bullets of ~200 grains. Some of these guys will probably respond. You might use the search function and search historical threads & posts covering the 7mm Allen Magnum. If you get one, let us know how it goes!

Re: 7mm AM

Don't buy one they're no good. NO......wait, I've got one. In fact I've got the first one out the door and it's amazing. I wouldn't part with it for anything.

If all you want is amazing ballistics and long range killing power in an easy to handle gun then it's what you're looking for.

Like was mentioned, in addition to BB's links, use the search feature and get ready for a lot of reading.

Re: 7mm AM

3000-4000 for the rifle
2000-3000 rifle scope, bases and rings
500 for brass, bullets, primers, POWDER, custom dies
800-1500 for a good range finder

and you are good to go .

Anytime you go to high performance you can expect to use premium gas, Goodyear Eagle F1s and rebuild the motor more frequently.

I do not believe any one knows what the barrel life is. Original estimates were 800 or so rounds of 1000 yard hunting accuracy.
