First custom rifle.... RBros 7mm Rogue

RBros Rogue action
28" Broughton LWLR contour
Manners T2-A
Seekins Bottom Metal
Seekins 20MOA base
Jewell trigger

Travis' test group that he sent with the rifle measured .227" for 4 shots. The velocity I've settled in on using the Applied Ballistics app is 3160fps with a 180gr VLD. I've been blown away @ how this rifle shoots & bucks the wind. I was really fond of my 7mm RM Sendero, but this rifle blows it out of the water.

Nice "ear shot" on the porker.

That 7mm 180 gr bullet is one wicked pill!!
