Interarms Mark X 7mm Rem Mag

This my new Long Range rifle. It is an Interarms Mark X in 7mm Remington Magnum. The barrel is 24 inches and about .720 at the muzzle. The scope is a super sniper 16x with Burris tactical rings and Warne steel bases. The stock is very beautiful with nice character. I am hoping it will shoot the Berger 168 VLDs or maybe even the 168 Classic Hunters. But I am going try the Nosler Long Range Accubonds when I can get my hands on them.

Update on my rifle. I am loading Berger 168 Hunting VLD"s with 65 grains of IMR 7828. Federal Gold Medal Match Standard Rifle Primers and Federal Brass Cases. I used the recommendations from Berger on setting the bullets for seating depth. Here is the group sizes as the seating depths got deeper.

Load Number 1 set at .010 off rifling. Bullet #1-3 in same hole with #4 hitting a little low.




Load Number 2 set at .040 off rifling. Bullet #1,2,4 almost touching with #3 low and left.


Load Number 3 set at .080 off rifling. All 4 bullets landed in the one inch square in a clockwise pattern.



Load Number 4 set at .120 off rifling and will actually fit in the magazine. 4 bullets 1/2 inch group. I believe I am going to go with this one.

If load 4 will fit in the magazine, I'd go with that one.

I had that exact rifle a few years back. I bought it for $450 CAD, it was unbelievable. Unfortunately I let it go on a trade and am still kicking myself!
Nice looking rig and group 4 looks real nice!

Love those Mark X's! They can still be had for about the same price as a most domestic makers' budget rifle. I would take a Mark X over any budget rifle and most brands' flagship rifles any day.

That is a sharp looking rifle! I am not surprised at how it shoots. Every example I've seen shot very well. I consider these rifles to be very underrated!
