Brux bbls are fast bbls

Today I chronograph ed my standard loads out of my 7 WSM today I have a Brux 26" SS 9" twist bbl. 69grs of Re#19 behind a Hornady 139gr SST produced an average muzzel velocity of 3550 ! I couldn't believe it ? I then shot my 22 auto pistol through the chronograph and it read 1100 fps and that was what it should've been. Then my 45 auto 890 fps so was that ! So thumbs up for Brux bbls !!!!

    You are shooting a 139 gr bullet at 3550 fps from a 7mm WSM?

    That is faster than a 7mm RUM. Something isn't right.

    Well you order a 7 mm BBL Blank of like 28" or 30"length and you tell them what contour ( That information is on their web page order form ) Mine is a #4 I wish I got a #5 a little fatter. Its up to your gunsmith to cut it to the length you want.

    Like I said in my post I shot a 22 and a 45 through the chronograph and they recorded the correct velocity. The screens were 15 feet away and my bbl is braked.

    I don't know if Brux barrels are any faster than others. Myself and a friend just got our 22/284's finshed; with 28" Brux barrels. They seem on par with what other guys are getting as far as speed goes. We shoot the 80 Gr Berger at 3625 fps. Iron Worker does your Brux copper foul? Ours have not shown any copper fouling at all. Overall I am very impressed with these barrels.
