Well after having several gunsmiths work on my rifle, I am finally done. Now I just have to find a load that will work.

Here are the details:
Rem 700 Accurized LA 7mm Rem Mag
Rock Creek 26" M24 contour fluted barrel (1-8 twist) with brake
Jewell Trigger
Badger Tactical Knob
McMillan A5 with adjustable cheekpiece and 3-way butt pad
Badger detachable bottom metal
Seekins Precision Base and Rings
Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x50 NP-R1 reticle with sunshade

Nice stick. 7 mm Rem Mag. Shouldn't have any trouble reaching 1000 and beyond. What bullet? 180 Berger?

Nice rig, but a question. Why get a 1 in 8 twist barrel if you are only going to shoot 162 and 168's? A 1 in 9 could have done that.

Im wondering the same. Seems to be that 180's are the way to go.
But all that aside, nice stick! Good pick

Actually the twist is 8.5 and I chose that in case i wanted to move up in weight later.
