I agree, it's just a matter of when it's a tack driver. Give it a hug! She's a beauty.

7WSM is a great choice. Very nice rifle! You should be fine with quality handloads.

Re: New GA Precision rifle

Nice gun. Have one looks just like it. I would use the Berger180 vlds. Shoot the higher BC bullet, don't cut yourself short. Of the three GAP 7wsm we have they all shoot 64-65.5g of H1000 CCI-BR2 primers, win brass.

Here is pictures and video of it.

Re: New GA Precision rifle

Thanks Skyking. That's a very nice rifle, I came across your video when I was trying to decide who to have build mine. I wil give the 180s a try. I managed to get some H1000 and RE22 but I can't find bench rest or match grade primers anywhere right now. All I can find in federal champion and winchester primers. Not the best time to just be getting into reloading.

My non-GAP 7WSM likes 66.0 gr of H-1000.

those two primers you can find will serve you well

Re: New GA Precision rifle

I finally got out and tried my first ladder test, even though I didn't shoot any groups I no longer have any concerns about the accuracy potential of this rifle. I loaded up 168gr Berger Hunting VLD with H1000, .010 of the lands. My starting load of 64.5gr shot a .449" 3 shot group at 200 yards and these were just meant to be my followers/sighters.

Unfortunately I don't have easy access to a range over 200 yards so I did my ladder test at 200 yards. Winds were light 2-3 mph right to left.

My first test is the one with the orange sticker I shot from 64.5 to 68gr. My second test I think I pulled a few shots. I shot that one from 68 to 64.5gr. I cleaned the rifle before each test and shot a fouling shot before I began. I am not sure if this test was helpful at this distance, i am having trouble seeing a clear node.

All of the loads should no pressure signs. I haven't received my chronograph yet so I don't have any velocities to post.
