Re: Any luck with the 7MM WSM

To fill a nich in my hunting rifle inventory I built a 7mm WSM and I am very pleased.

I use it for white tail deer and for a backup to my 338 for elk.

In the short action with a # 6 contoured barrel it makes a potent carry rifle.

I use the 140 gr Accubond for deer and the 160 Accubond for Elk , The 140 load goes just over
3350 ft/sec velocity in a 23" barrel and 3100 ft/sec for the 160.

I don't use a break but in an 8lb rifle if you go with heaver bullets some would want a muzzle
break.

They are capable of great accuracy and energy for a "Short" round. The best 5 shot group
to date with this rifle is .177'' at 100 yards.

Some one will always have something better but if this is what you want you will never
be disappointed in it for the range and power level it is intended.
