I am looking at getting back into hunting after about a 15 year absence (life happens). I have previously hunted in Alaska, Yukon, US, and Africa. All of the game I have taken has been shot at less that 200 yeards, with the exception of a wildebeest at 400 yeards. However, I have always been interested in accurate rifles, as I believe they just give you more confidence in getting the job done.I am looking at the Gunwerks LR 1000 system in 7mmRM, shooting 168 grain VLD's. What appeals to me about their system is that it is a system. The turret is set for the load and it is a self contained package. I used to reload, but I have no desire to get into that again, and the fact that Gunwerks provides custom loaded ammo is appealing. I plan on doing a lot of practice shooting, I just do not want to get back into handloading (I'm too old and too busy for that). Several questions I have for forum members:
1. Can anyone relate their hands on experience with Gunwerks LR 1000.
2. I have always been a fan of large caliber rounds. Most of my game has been taken with a 340 Weatherby. Do you think the LR1000 in 7mm RM can take caribou, moose, and interior grizzly predictably and effectively with 168 grain VLD's.
3. For those who have their Huskemaw scope
, what do you think?
I have also left a message for Shawn Carlock to call me to discuss the possibilities with him, and I plan on emailing Kirby Allen as well. I just do not know how they feel about doing load development and providing handloaded ammo for their clients. I guess I could give the specs to Superior Ammo and have them duplicate the rounds.
Your experiences and comments are appreciated.
