New R Bros 7RM

Just picked up my new 7mm Remington Magnum from Travis at R Bros last Saturday and could not be happier!

LWLR Hunter
7 Rem Mag

Rogue Action, 1pc fluted bolt
Broughton LWLR Contour, 27" Fluted, 1-9 Twist
Manners EH-1, 13" LOP, 2 front studs, 1 rear
BDL Floorplate
20 MOA Alum Rail
Jewell Trigger
3 Port DE Brake
Saddle Cheekpiece
Matte Black Metal
R Bros Woodland Camo
NightForce NXS 5.5-22X50 NPR-1

Below is a pic of the rifle and one of the first groups through the rifle on Sunday. Not really an "official" target, but I wasn't really expecting to shoot those kind of groups out of the gate! Of all the groups I shot that day finishing up the break-in, none were over a half inch and three other groups should have been in this range if it weren't for the loser driving that pushed a couple left. If you are looking to have a rifle built, I highly suggest you give Travis a call. He builds a great rifle and is a great guy to deal with!

Re: New R Bros 7RM

Mean looking rig! I like it

Have you figured a velocity for your 180's yet?? I'm running a 28" barrel on my 7RM, 68 gr Retumbo gets me 2900...

Just curious

Sweet shootin'

A buddy of mine shoots a 7saum and gets 2900 with the 180bergers out of a 26" barrel with 58grains of H4831SC.

Seems like if you guys with the 7rem mags would go with a faster powder like H1000 and get velocities in the 3000+ range.

Re: New R Bros 7RM

I'm told mine will land in the 3030 to 3050 range when it settles in. I haven't had a good day for chronographing yet, but should know more after the weekend.

That's why I was asking I agree...

Tried upping the load but seemed that accuracy suffered. Didn't seem to like H1000 either. Gun just might like to take it nice and slow I guess, oh well.

Last time to the range with it @ 600 yards, cold bore, on steel a gong, 2 shots and the dimples were touching so I guess it'll do for now...

He might want to check his Chono, my 7 SAUM w/ 25" barrel gets 2750 with 58 gr H4831 w/ 180's and is on par with Bergers numbers in their loading manual.
