Had a great day shooting yesterday. Some of the best 100 yard group that I have shot with this gun.

Great groups! Can't wait to get mine chambered up.

By then the deal was already done and I simply kept my word just like you guys would do.

Plus, I had my new full custom 300 win in the works. I don't need a 7mm-300 and a 300 win. If the 300 win does not shoot as good as this rifle I could always rebarrel it to 7mm-300... See, I do have a back up plan...

LOL, this reminds me of the movie....? either "Wyatt Earp" or "Tomb Stone" ?? Where the guy asked Doc Holiday

" why are you doing this you will be killed"

Doc, " Cuz Wyatt is my friend"

guy " Hell, I have lots of friends"

Doc " Well I don't "

Ha ha!!!

The 7mm Practical is very similar to this cartridge, take a look on terminal ballistics research. Im interested

Nice groups Skyking!

Chuckhammer: I have a 7mm/375 Ruger not the LRM. It is a 375 Ruger case necked down short neck and all.

Using RL-33 with 180 Berger target hybrid. Barrel is a SS 29 1/4" 6 groove lilja.
Most accurate load is 83 grains for velocity of 3175 fps. I did work up to over 85 grains with velocities over 3200 fps but groups opened up.


I am certain RL-33 would work with the heavier 7mm bullet offerings in a 7mm/300 win mag.
