Im curious to see how the velocity compares to your 7 Dakotas. The lrm might be a better option for me

Did Aaron cut the chamber, or do you have a reamer?

Which action did you use?

Re: Len's new 7 LRM - first day at the range

I bought a reamer from Aaron.

Stiller Predator action

They said to expect 3050 to 3075 fps. I won't really know until I get about 50 more rounds through it. Seems that barrels speed up until that round count is reached.

Re: Len's new 7 LRM - first day at the range

Great post, I am building one now. Waiting on the reamer from Aaron and the bolt from Dave Kiff. Building mine on a Trued Rem 700 LA, PTG 1 piece bolt and a 1-8 twist # 5 Shilen barrel. Len are you happy with the H1000 and/or are you going to try Retumbo as well? I would like to see some pics of the gun as well!

Maybe you should consider changing your ruler to read the same : "School's out"
Nice shooting, Len!
