I just wanted to thank Chris publicly and send out a little plug for him.
Chris is currently building me a 7mmRM. It's been 14 weeks now, but the delay lies solely with McMillan's inability to keep up with A5 orders. Anyway, this wouldn't have been a problem, however I'm heading down to attend ASC#4 on 20 May. I was counting on that rifle being done for this competition. So what does Chris do? He sends me his personal brand new rifle to take! He didn't have to do that, but I think it really shows what kind of guy he is. Thanks Chris. You really helped me out of a bind.
And I think this shows what kind of gunsmith he is. He sent me a 300 Win Mag. Below is a picture of it and a group I shot with it on the first time out. I used 190 SMKs and IMR 4350. Granted, this isn't the best powder for this gun, but I have a ton of it. Velocities averaged 3004 fps. Amazing how little load development I needed to do to get this! Chris mentioned that he's willing to sell it, so if anyone is looking for super accurate 300 WM, now's your chance. What can you lose, it's already proven to be a hell of a shooter!
