Come on, that scope has killed rock chucks at 1555, 1712, 1930, 2100 and 2370 yards, how could you ask for more???

Just for your information, my 5.5-22 test scope was working on another customers rifle that day or it probably would have been mounted on this great handgun. That thing flat out shoots!!! 1/2 mile was boring!!!

My rear grip 7 WSM just had a 5 shot group at 1000 yards at the MOA handgun match under 4 inches today.

Ernie, I am disappointed in you since that kind of group is so unfair to the other handgun competitors. Just how do you think they feel now?

I would imagine your happy with that!! From what I saw with the OPs 7mm WSM shooting the 180 gr Bergers, I would suspect he could play with that group size from time to time at 1K once he gets the break in and fine tune the load. The 7mm WSM just flat out shoots. Not sure why but I have built alot of 25 WSM, 6.5 WSM, 270 WSM, 7mm WSM, 300 WSM and 338 WSM and while the 6.5mm WSM is a close second, the 7mm WSM just seems to be the most consistant of the family time and again.

Ya I know,

This was a combo effort for sure, great metal work, great stock work. To tell you the truth, I was nervous having that finished stock in the shop, one mistake and an amazing stock finish would have been spoiled!!
