Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

This is my Mod 70 Win Black Shadow in 7mm Rem Mag with factory 26" bbl. Scope is 4-16x50 mildot with new 9-13" bipod. I have it zeroed for 300 now and hope soon to get out and get the zero out to 500 or 600 with my Hornady Hvy Mag 139 SST ammo that I like so well. Weight as equipped is 11.5#. I'm sure after I hike the plains a day with it that it will feel like 35#:

I tried to figger out how to post foto in my message instead of a link but couldn't find the info. You know how it is when you want something you can never locate it and any other time you're tripping over it.

Thanks.

It shoots very well but have only shot it to 300 so far. I'm shaky so my groups need work, but I dont miss. I need to get out and do some long range shooting( 500+). I can say this, it's VERY effective on mule deer.

Thanks much for posting the foto in the forum. I appreciate the help. Usually my posts die for lack of interest.

Re: Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

Ammo's getting to be a prob for this. My sources for Hornady Heavy Mag 7mm 139SST have dried up. I may have to reload some and try to get close. And I need to get out and long range it which I hope do next month as I was accepted in to a local shooting club with a 600 yard range.

Re: Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

Hi there, if you are going to get in to reloading consider the 160 accubond and 162 a-max. They have a much better BC than the 139 sst.
I use both in my 7mm mag and have had very good results. All kills have been one shot, DRT, ranges for 160 accubond 50 - 300 yds, 162 a-max 358 - 638 yds.

Stu.

Nice looking rig! Wish I had a local range that went out to 600 yards
