GunWerks Custom hand loads

Has anyone tried this ammo, and is it as good as they say on the TV show long range pursuit.

    Im sure its good, is it the best for your rifle? Well only buying a box and shooting it will tell you that. For the price it may be no better than Federal, HSM or Barns custom loadings.

    You much better off learning to reload

    Only 'your' rifle will tell you if it's better.

    I know there reloads are quality but only your rifle knows what it likes. If they develope a load for you rifle and reload ammo for it, it will be right on.

    They should be fairly consistent i would think but its still a "generic" load that they pulled out of a reloading manual and it wont be loaded very hot because it has to work in any rifle and the coal will be right at maximum listed by the book which is actually quite short. They may or may not shoot well in your rifle, if you dont want to hand load and you want to use berger bullets then I would try them but You are way better off handloading.

    Their web site says the 7 mm REM that they sale is loaded to a oal of 3.042. And the standard length for that cartridge is 3.029.
    I have started reloading again, but my equipment is old, and I'm slow at it. I'm heading to Montana this Nov, and I want to make sure I have the best ammo possible, I guess I will start some serious load development, and see what I come up with.
