    7long range magnum

    Anyone played with a 7 lrm? Thinking of getting a gunwerks 1000 but can't decide on calibre the options are.

    6XC
    6.5-284 Norma
    7mm Rem Mag
    7mm LRM
    300 Win Mag
    300 RUM

    Any input would be appreciated!

    Give us this day our daily lead,
    and hunting land we’ll call a spread.
    If I should die here on this day,
    I pray for guns in Heaven with which to play.

    Amen,

    Long rage shooting for gophers to moose, ammo price is not important seeing as I will be rolling my own.

    Might as well go for the 7lrm or another one if your looking for horse power is the 7/338 lapua ! It's a barn burner for sure

    Barrel life would be about 1200 give or take and you would have to follow the throat closely but it would be fun seeing 180 gr bullets up around 3400 fps!!

    Ya I have looked into a .26 nosler, but I already own a 6.5 creed and a 6.5x47 so I am looking for something that will carry some bang flop potential to 1400+
