That's awesome, you are going to love how the HS guns shoot. They have great customer support... So which HS model are you getting and what cartridge did you choose?
Only thing I found out with this HS gun is I would treat their 1/2 MOA load info as a great starting point. I was able to tune my loads and get down to consistent 3/8 MOA with the occasional 1/4 MOA groups. Which I thinks makes sense considering we all have different reloading techniques. The other thing I found is just about any load I tried shot better than 1 MOA, and once you found a sweet spot it just shot awesome. Very different from my other factory rifles that took tons of work to find one recipe that would shoot sub MOA.
Only reason I"m selling this gun is to fund a new custom build project. I currently have this 7wsm as a deer/antelope gun plus a 338 win mag for elk. My 338 is not as accurate and I wanted just one great happy medium gun to hunt everything here in Colorado. I settled on a 300 win mag. I should just use this 7wsm to hunt everything but it's always fun to get something new...
