    This is a long over due range report from a gun Kevin Cram (Montour County Rifles) put together for me. He posted this in the gun photo's section shortly after he finished it this spring. A few folks requested a range report so here it is.

    I started wanting to shoot the 180 VLD but after some testing I found my barrel just didn't like them for what ever reason so I switched to the 162 A-max and immediately noted they were a better fit. My sweet spot ended up being 69.5 gr of H1000 and CCI250 primers. I ended up with 3020 as an average MV that is is shooting sub .5 MOA. Below are groups shot at 100, 400, and 605 yards. Please disregard the crap I wrote all over the targets and note the group size. I have some 192 Matrix bullets here I'll try in the spring and post about if they agree with my barrel.

    Kevin built me a fine shooter that didn't see much action last year but this year will be a different story!!

    Looks real nice John. I had Kevin build a 300 WM for me last year and it's crazy accurate as well. He does nice work for sure.

    Fellers thanks for the kind words.

    JUDD- It's gonna be a slow process. Everything about them (chey-tac)are expensive. Looks like I have the wife talked into lettin me get a Barnard action for it. The reamer was ordered as well. Nuthin fancy just a couple changes to help go a little faster. Barrel life isn't a concern on this one. I want a hot rod.

    It took some time but I knew your tinkeritis would kick in and you would find the load for that 7!

    Can't wait to see the cheytac when it is done. Gimme a call sometime and let me in on the specs.
