I took posession of my new 7mm AM a couple of weeks ago, but just now got around to posting the info.
Nesika Model M action
30" Lilja 1-9 twist #8 hvy fluting
McMillan A-5 stock
NF 5.5-22x50 with MLR reticle
HS Detachable Mag
Defensive Edge Brake
I have just mainly been forming brass, but I have done some load work.....
99.0 3290 fps
100.0 3280 fps
101.0 3312 fps
102.0 3360 fps
103.0 3416 fps
The 102 and 103 gr loads gave a little stiff bolt lift, but not hard by any means. The 101gr load put 3 shots in a .487" outside to outside group at 100 yds. I kept shooting and thinking I was missing the target, and thinking....Man, Kirby builds a nice looking rifle and it is fast, but I can't hit the target with it. I was very happy to say the least when I got to the target. Kirby did some work with it and found very good results out to 1300+ yds in very poor conditions. This is my first rifle that I have owned that I did not build. I am very pleased and am planning the next Allen Mag build now. Hopefully this weekend I can get in some more shooting at some serious distances.
I would like to thank SS7MM for his helpful advice on this project also.
