Does the Berger 180 work well @3100fps?
Yes, it does, based on my 7 Dakota experience at 3145 fps.

Re: Gunwerks 7 LRM???

Performance wise the two look pretty similiar, how much more if any recoil, than say a 7mm Mag?
As for the berger bullets, I was going to specifically throat the barrel for the 168dr or the 180gr Begers.
Habe you shot the 165s? if so is there any advantage to using them on deer sizes game?

Re: Gunwerks 7 LRM???

The recoinl answer is in this excel spreadsheet.

Without doing the calc I'd guess 1/3 more in the same weight rifle.

Re: Gunwerks 7 LRM???

Recoil is only a small increase over the 7mm Mag with 168 (23.6 versus 27.4 with the LRM). We see the 180's at 3085 to 3100 fps at 75 rounds. The neck is longer, and with a 180 seated to fit a std mag box, the boat tail just barely enters the case. Advantage over the Dakota is std Mag bolt face. We do not push this very hard because of the workload involved in brass mfg, but it makes a nice package. I personally am not a big fan of wildcats, but we are working for properly mfg'd brass with headstamp.

Re: Gunwerks 7 LRM???

Ok took the plunge. Bought a7MmLrm from GSeven

We will see but it looks promising
Basically pushing the 168 or the 180 Berger faster with less pressure than the 7 mag
Stay tuned I'm going to find out.
The whole thesis with gunwerks is to put the whole picture together
Very forward thinking.

Re: Gunwerks 7 LRM???

I Just recieved my LR 1000 from Gunwerks. From what I can tell this is a mild load but 72 GR of H1000 and a 180 Berger VLD at 3035. It shoots outstanding. Granted I have only shot it at 100 yards and 6 rounds but all 6 were one little ragged hole. The LR 1000 is a outstanding rifle. Seems easy to shoot, balances like no other. I cant wait to stretch her legs out. The G7 scope is outstandng also. I have Owned leupolds zeiss swaro and huskamaw, and now I want to replace all my scopes. Gunwerks is producing some very nice systems and will have me as a customer for a very long time. The customer service is second to none. I spent alot of time on the phone with both Aaron and Mike and they are both top notch, they answered all my questions and concernes very proffesionally.
