Re: 7saum Build

Re: 7saum Build

Well, just about, thats that. Down to some final fitting then a finish. Will give a plug to the widden v-block. Basically for ease of taking basically a no inlet stock, and make it a rem 700. I then actually did a full bed job, alum block made a great "grind stop" so final product is vey clean

Specs
predator action
Number 6 fluted benchmark, 26 inches, work done by the guys at benchmark, thanks again

As you see it, came in a little lighter than I figured, 8 pounds as you see it, so right around 10 -10.25 all set up

Post a pic when its finished up, as it is, its ready to shoot, minus scope, starting with the 160 accubonds

Re: 7saum Build

Re: 7saum Build

Weight of the stock is about 40 ounces. Ended up filling the forearm. With the bipod I had too much twisting. Stock is extremely rigid.

Total gun weight is 10 pounds even, that is including the bipod. Still need to work out cheek piece. I had molded in a cheek piece but didn't like idea of removing stock to clean. So know basically molding another one. Plan for it to be removable but may not be adjustable.

Barrel break in starts in morning

I have another project in mind. Have a varmint barreled 6br. Plan to build a aluminum type chassis system out of flat stock. I have access to a CNC cutter. That one should come together quick. Have it all drawn up

I'll post some better pics of this one soon

Re: 7saum Build

well, I was in need of some cheek adjustment, was going to go with a kydex type, decided to go more built in. For adjustment, I made a simple set screw type out of alum plate, hard to explain, but will have pics of final product. One of these days I'll actually get to post pretty pics or targets, and if anyone has some short action bottom metal, drop me a line, really need some to finish up, like to not have to buy new from midway

Re: 7saum Build

That looks like it will be a tack driver!! I may have missed it but, is it a single shot or repeater? Are you dead set on the 160 Accubond? I tried everything from 162 Amax to 180 Berger VLD and Hybrids. My rifle loves the 180 Hybrids with 62 gr H4831sc (it's over book max, but only slight pressure signs). Before the Hybrids came out my go to load was the 162 Amax and H1000. Good luck with your load development and keep us informed.

Re: 7saum Build

This one has been a bit of an uphill battle. I had some pressure issues, but that has been resolved. Then came feeding, tried a couple different blind mag setups with little sucess.

Now I'm going detachable mag,(repeater) this will work, but more work in terms of inletting for the box.

Load work is promising, lots more stuff to try, but getting sub-moa out of it. Sticking with the accubonds for this year, and 4831sc, mainly because I have them, still dry around here for powder

I'll work on some more pics. I had hydrodipped stock, but going to sort of un-do that work with the inletting needed for the mag box.

That said though, love the rifle, just trying to get in all worked out for my caribou hunt, and its summer in AK, so lots! of stuff pulling me in other directions
