I went out and did some shooting today and decided to Chrony my 7mm Rem Mag Sendero. I needed to find out the Velocity to match it up to the New Leupold Varmit Hunter's Plex in my new scope.
I was Very supprised to find out that while shooting "book" Max 150g Sierra GameKing with 62g H4831SC. I was only getting 2750fps (5 shot average). I had a Ruger No1 and fired the same load in it and got 2960fps (5 shot average) that's over 200fps.
Has anyone here ever seen something like this. I know there are variations from one rifle to another, but I've never seen that much diffrence between two rifles and the same load.
Accuracy was ok, but not the best. I've gotta wonder if something is up with the bbl. I've never quite been happy with this rifle, it's never felt right when shooting it, meaning balistics and stuff, For crying out loud, my .30-06 AI will shoot a 165g bullet at 3125fps.
I love Remington 700's, I'm just thinking of rebarreling the thing and using a better bbl, and maybe a diffrent cartridge.
