    Just got my rifle back from Jerry Newman at Newman Precision. This thing looks great! Fit and finish is perfect.
    I picked it up just a couple of hours ago, so haven't had time to shoot it yet (daylight savings...sucks). Tomorrow I'm hoping I will have 30 minutes after work to get a few rounds through it. Anways...here's the specs...

    Surgeon RSR WSM - 7mm SAUM
    Bartlein .284 26" barrel
    RAD Brake
    McMillan A3 w/KMW hardware
    Surgeon DBM
    Jewell Trigger
    Nightforce 5.5-22x50

    That's a good looking rig. You will love the SAUM. I've have good results with the 162 Amax and H1000, I'm shooting the 180 Hybrid with 4831sc. Good luck and keep us posted.

    Great looking rig. If it shoots as good as it looks you have a real winner there.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Jarhead, what's your recommended charge with 180 Hybrids and 4831SC? I've got both and would like to make this work!

    Wildrose, Thanks! I hope it does too.

    My rifle loves 62 gr of 4831sc. That is over book max, but I looked for pressure signs. The 62 gr leaves a faint ejector mark with no hard bolt lift. I would start at 57 gr and work your way up.

    Really really badass rig, great chambering too. 162 A Maxes should cruise. Send it out to CO if you want me to break it in, free of charge:)
