    i like to see all of your guys guns it gives me ideas for my next rig. for some reason there only a few showing there guns. then i realized that i could show one of mine to get this going...

    this is a 7mm wsm built by Nathan at SSG

    Remington 700 long action
    trued and blue printed
    tactical bolt handle made and installed by Nate
    bolt fluted by nate looks sweet
    leupold 4.5x14x50 tactical with mildot
    jewell trigger
    bedded in marine tex
    hs bottom metal
    broughton 28" fluted varmite conture
    farrel 20 moa base
    fa enterprise rings
    hs stock
    limb saver recoil pad
    gun coted in black

    this gun shoots very good my first 600 group was 2.5 inched. i am shooting 168 berger vlds at 3075. this gun shoots .5moa and when im up to it much better. i have shot a 5" 3 shot group at 1050 at ssg range.

    hope this will get some of you started lets see your long range rigs

    How's the WSM working in that long action?Are you having any issues with the cartridges moving artound in the magazine?I have a Rem 700 LA,and I've been thinking about putting a hunting rig together similar to yours.

    i was having an issue with the feeding. then we installed a center feed magazine.I used the hs bottom metal, but you can use a kwik klip or badger. That solved everything. The long action is great i dont have to worry how far i seat the bullet. As you can see from the picture i leave them way out. Make sure you post it when you get it done...

    Thanks.I figured the center feed mag would be a factor.I was thinking about the Kwik Klip system,and a Joel Russo A5L.I'll post pics as I progress.
