Re: Factory Savage 7mm rem mag 1000 yard video

What length barrel? I can only get 2850fps or so with 162's. Mine if a savage 116fhsak, with the factory brake. I've never been able to break 3000 fps, even with 140's, had some factory 150's shoot about 2950, but that's about it. I call it the 7mm not so magnum. Dang 22" barrel. My 7RUM can get me 3200-3300 with the 162 amax. Just wondering what the cartridge "should" be able to do.

Haha, Heck no! Do you think they would last one day out there? Don't be giving away the spot. Else there will be 100 guys out shooting, leaving there crap everywhere.

The load for the gun is this. It is a hot load so be careful!! Berger 168 vld's over 72g Retumbo, CCI-BR2 primers, bullet seated to just kissing the lands. It has a 24" barrel.

I really would not pay to much attention to the crono numbers. I use the crono mostly for ES,SD stuff. After I am done shooting at 100 yards to get my zero. I take it out to 1000 yards and see how it shoots there. I have the Bulletflight, and the Ballistic FTE both on my Itouch. The crono gets me in the ballpark on MV. I get all the atmospheric conditions from my Kesley 3500, and input them into the program. Bryan Litz's G7 .316 is right on. Now I adjust my MV in the program until I am on target. That is the MV that I go off of. That is why the first shot was over the target. Had the speed to low.

no doubt! just on the other side of the mountain and north alittle a neighbor was killed by a ricochet. all those idiots pull up and jump outta their cars and start shooting against all those loose bolders! they usually dont even look whos setup behind them. i try to avoid that spot like the plague!
