    How much does it weigh? Whats the recoil like? I like the overall look of the rifle. I have never seen a bipod like that.

    this rig weighs in at just under 18 lbs with bipod. yes the pod is a sinclair tactical.works fantastic and worth every penny.the schuller three port does a great job reducing recoil.my 162 loads are fairly hot and the gun feels like a .22-250 with the brake on.been shooting mostly rl22 but i'm gonna load up some rounds with retumbo here soon and see how that does.so far the rig has met all my expectations.

    Wow...a 7mm RM with that kind of recoil? Also, 18lbs behind it helps a lot. What kind of distances are you testing at? How far do you want to stretch it?

    she's zeroed at 300 yds and so far shooting very well at a grand.havent stretched out out past a thousand yet but it's comming soon. i was able to center punch a 3"x4" plate 4 out of 4 times at 700 laying prone,something that i was never able to do with my other guns.the 7mm rem mag has alot of potential as a distance cartridge.
