Hi everyone. I've been reading this forum for quite a while. Learning. Now that I have some free time I figured I'd try to get involved in some discussions and hopefully make some new friends who have similar interests. I'm a huge 7mm fan, high BC's and low recoil :-)
Thanks! Nice 7mm AM there. I've sent Kirby some starter money to get going on one of my own. I keep running the ballistics program again and again and again. I can't believe what its capable of. How is the recoil? That's my main concern. I hate ear killing muzzle breaks but I took his advice and will be putting one on. Hopefully I can remember to put ear plugs in while hunting.
Congratulations on getting a 7mm AM going for yourself. You'll love it. The recoil in mine is really nothing and yup, the ballistics are something. Things happen in a hurry when you pull the trigger. Here's a link to some video of shots with the 7mm AM and 200 grain Wildcats. Oh "bleep" moment plus success also
I wear hearing protection any time I shoot whether I'm practicing or hunting. Any properly designed brake will increase shooter sensed blast and I found that even though the PK brake is angled the sound level was no different than the original small brake I had on it.
Sure I'd like to go shooting with ya. 200gr bullet is big enough for me and anything in Wyo that I hunt. Maybe down the road step up to the 338 AM, but I'll work my way up to that. I know some folks around the Ft Bridger area that are long rang shooters. Who are you planning on shooting with?
