On Friday I received my APS resurrected Remington LSS in 7mm RUM and all I can say is WOW. Everything everyone else has said about Kirbyís work is true.
Here are the specs
APS trued bolt receiver etc.
30Ē Lilja #7 fluted
Defensive Edge muzzle break
Rifle Basix trigger 1 ĺ lbs.
GreTan firing pin assembly
Factory LSS stock opened up for #7 barrel
Nightforce NSX 5.5-22X Ė 56
Badger 20 MOA base
Burris Extreme rings (medium)
Harris swivel bi-pod with leg notches and Pod Loc
Total weight is 13.5 lbs.
After 30 shot break in and load development with the 200 gn Wildcat RBBT ULDís Iíve settled on 85 grains of Retumbo. Iím getting 3050 fps with absolutely no pressure and very respectable accuracy. I may decide to push things a bit harder as I know I can surpass the 3100 fps mark and accuracy is just as good.
Last night there was zero wind and I really wanted to get to 1000 yards. So I set up a target, drove back to where I could shoot, carried everything 300 yards to the top of a hill, settled in (bipod on the front and bags in the back), and quickly took three shots. I could see the dust coming from behind the target so I knew I was at least on the paper. I was very happy with the results (may not be that good in some peoples eyes, but Iím excited). I will admit there is probably room for improvement (my shooting abilities [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).
I'll be out tonight for more 600 & 1000 testing.
