Remington 700 LA 7WSM Custom build

Built this rifle and have now gone on a different route for my hunting rifle.

Specs as follows:
Remington 700 long action, blueprinted
Remington 700 bolt, trued to action
Remington 700 old style trigger
Shilen Select Match 9 twist finished at 24", fluted, light palma taper
HS Precision stock, added texture for better grip with gloves in cold/wet/snowy weather
BDL bottom metal
**Stock is hydrodipped in Kuiu Verde
Barreled action, bolt, and bottom metal cerakoted titanium
**bolt shroud is uncoated stainless







***FLAWS***
The stock texturing has chipped (see photo). The stock was hydrodipped before I noticed the missing chunk. I personally never cared, but in the case of full disclosure, there you have it.


The rear tang of the action is discolored. I have no idea how this happened, if it was cross contamination during the coating process of the day. Again, I never cared as it is a hunting rifle and I planned on hunting and using, not as a show piece. Again, full disclosure.


I have fired a total of 13 rounds through the rifle at this time. I am still not sure I want to sell it, so I will continue load development using brand new Winchester brass, H-1000 powder, and 160 grain Nosler Accubond.

ASKING $2400 for the rifle delivered to your FFL. I am into the rifle for more than this (wife will surely kill me, but that is the nature of selling rifles. Ammirite?)

Wish there was a drool icon! Nice rig. Want this exact gun! Who did the work? You may have mentioned it, I was too focused on the gun...

Re: Remington 700 LA 7WSM Custom build

I went out today to test loads. This is 7 rounds fired at 100 yards. This is the following powder charges of H-1000: 3=67, 4=67.5, 5=68, 6=68.5, 7=69, 8=69.5, 9=70. This is with Hornady 162 grain BTSP.

That is just under 1" group over a span of 3 grains of powder. I think the honey load is going to be 68 grains of H-1000. I will be heading back out to the range to verify loads from 68-69 grains at 300 yards. Going in .2 grain increments. Will post more later. As you can tell though, this is a shooter!
