Just recieved my 7WSM from Kevin.
Timed and trued long action
Sharpshooter supply trigger
Woodchuck stock, bedded
Aluminum tensioned barrel w/ stockade muzzle brake
All work done by Kevin.
Did some workups at 100yds to get a feel for how it shoots and do some seating depth tests.
The 168 Bergers and 175SMK's grouped well so I loaded three different loads with each bullet ,H1000 67.5gr ,68.5gr,69.5gr and shot a round robin ladder at 565yds.
The 168 Bergers shot the 67.5gr load into a nice 2.5" 3 shot group and the 175 SMK's shot the 69.5gr load into beautiful 1.22" group- both at 565yds.
I haven't even tweaked the loads yet, but to say I am happy with the results would be an understatement!
I think if I shoot the Bergers at about 70.2gr it will hit the same node as the 175gr Sierra load.
I'm also going to try the 162 AMAX
