My 7WSM

Just got it thrown together and painted quickly while my wife was out of the house. I still need to bed the action and install the SS trigger, waiting for Alumahyde to cure first. I believe this will be a very good set up for 1000yd target shooting. It's not too heavy at 11.5 lbs with scope and bi-pod etc. It should work well for Elk hunting, too. I plan to use the 180gr Bergers (.684 BC).


Benchmark 1:9 twist, 3 groove, stainless, fluted, barrel
Stockade recoil lug
McCullek muzzle brake
Savage 110fp action
Stockade 3/4" Bolt knob/handle
Sharp Shooter trigger
Stockade "Elk Stalker) stock
Bushnell Elite 6-24x50 tactical (30mm tube)

Here's a few pics, I'll probably shoot it sometime after ISSC.

    Nice looking rig. One other bullet to consider is Bob Cauterucio's 176 grain VLD which has a .750 BC. I have used it for 5 years so far.

    Nice job. I see you used the same colors as your .243 - that will make a nice pair.

    My rifle will be back from the gunsmith soon and I will be using your pics as a model for the camo job I'll be doing on it. Although I will be using different colors.

    Thanks guys. Those bullets sound awesome Len (amazing BC), I will definately give them a shot so to speak (thanks for the contact info).

    I was planning on buying new paint from brownells by now, but never got arround to it, so it's a very simular paint job. The rifle's do look nice side by side.


    I just live the fluted barrel, never had one fluted before.

    Apologies for calling you Lance....my mind edited your screen name from "landc" to "lance"

    One curious question....why the brake? 7WSM does not have prohibitive recoil.
