thanks! learning the 7mm is good but barrel life is in question. But if i let it cool and clean as needed/reccomended things are good. will be shooting this gun at 700yrds plus. leave the 30.06 winchester for the closer stuff, good gun! Reaching out to longer ranges I think the 7mm RUM will do just fine. some people kinda touchy on this caliber. these guns are like hot rods, faster you get more maintenance required. i understand this mentality.

ok, here is what I do
do not shoot the barrel hot
use ball powder if possible
clean every 20-25 rounds
I have no problems after approx. 500 rounds downrange from my 7mm AM

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1


Culture Of Excellence At Nightforce Optics

A high level of quality both in production and in service. Read More


Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
