Build finally finished first shots fired today

Just got my rifle today. 7mm stw 700 action, broughton 5c bbl 30 in palma countour. Worked up a load using 140 bt @3490 and 162 amax @3292 fps. Both shot in the .5 range which i was pretty happy with considering the wind is howling. The 5c is the fastest cleaning bbl i have ever seen. I will update as the weather gets better and i stretch the range a little more.

You are gonna have to reread the user rules before you get banned for life. You just absolutely cannot get on here bragging about a new gun..........without posting pics

Congrats on the new rifle, glad she is shooting for ya, now get some pics up here ASAP before you get banned.

Yeah cds. Dont know how i like it yet still working on loads so leupy can make a couple turrets for me. As soon as i get turrets in im gonna test them at 100 yd increments out to 1000 to see how the scope performs. Oh yeah the gun came in at just under 11 lbs scope and all
