It\'s finally done...7/300WSM

I plan on getting me a 1000 yard deer and a Priaire Dog this year with my new baby.
I'm dying to shoot it but I'm still waiting on dies. They should be here any day now.

Nice rifle, which action and barrel and brake. Is it single shot only?

Re: It\'s finally done...7/300WSM

Sorry I'm not receiving email notfication that there was a response to this post.

Well it's a Viper action with mag bolt face,
I also bought a spare bolt in .308 bolt face for it. It's a 7/300WSM 1/9 twist Shilen SM 27" Neck is .310
Jewell varmint trigger set at 8oz right now.
A Tooley MBR clone stock. Some guy in Montana
makes them and I can't remember his name right now.
Nightforce NXS 12x42 with NP-2R reticle in double screw SPF rings.

She came in at 15lbs 10oz. There are two tubes in the butt section for a weight kit which I haven't messed with yet. The idea was to make a gun I can shoot IBS & NBRSA 1000 yard matches plus whack some varmints.
The tubes are the full length of the butt section. I should be able to get the thing up to 18lbs or better for varmint shooting.
I plan on shooting the 162 grain AMAX and some custom 156 grain VLD bullets. The 156's
are supposed to have a BC near .680

Nice rifle. I like the way it looks. Should be a nice long range machine.
Have fun with it.
