My new 7saum has arrived and I'm excited to share some pics.
This rifle will be my long range tactical rifle (for matches where a stage(s) may be 1000yards and farther). It will also spend some time in the field hunting deer and groundhogs.
Here are the specs:
Blueprinted Remington 700
28" fluted, heavy barrel, 1:8 twist to shoot 180 and 195grain bullets, four port Muscle Brake and Holland recoil lug
McMillan Gray cerakote.
McMillan A3 (50% brown, 25% black, 25% gray - trebark colors!) with adjustable cheekpiece. Pillar bedded.
Jewell trigger tuned to 18oz. - it breaks like glass!
Leupold MK4 8.5-25x50 with M5 turrets and TMR reticle mounted in Burris Signature Rings and 20moa rail.
This rifle started life as My 300RUM by MCR The conversion to 7saum was done by Shawn Burkholder with Hawk Hill Custom - Hawk Hill Custom. I highly recommend him to you.
Initial load development has shown great accuracy potential (.5moa or better) while sending 180grain Berger Hybrids at 2900+ with expectations of getting them going 3000fps. I'll post shooting results soon. In the mean time, here's a few pics of my new stick. Let me know what you think.
This rifle is a visual twin of My 260 by MCR
