    For anyone interested in this, its a neat rifle, ive shot it on steel at the first Toby shoot, Tom and I swapped 7Saums for a few shots.

    Very cool rifle

    What loads are you running through it and how well does it shoot? Not familiar with the 595. Are you able to load out close to the lands or limited by mag length? Barrel threaded?

    Barrel not threaded. Was running 162 amax at 2800fps with 54gn 2209. Half MOA. Mag is 3” holds 4. Has much better velocity potential but can’t be arsed doing load development. Moving to a WSM for simplicity. If rifle sells I’ll be getting rid of all loaded rounds, brass, projectiles and Redding comp stype seater.

    A 3 inch mag is ideal for the Saum case with 162s seated out long for max powder capacity.

    Here's the length I run my 7saum/162 Amax at. I have to single feed them in my model 7 as the mag is only 2.8 inch.

    Was the TrueFlite on it when you purchased or did you get if fitted? Many rounds through it? Quite tempting just the bloody shippings going to be a hassle at the moment. Not to mention the local range being closed so load development will be put on hold for a few months.

    Trueflite was already fitted when I bought it. Previous owner fired 3 shots then sold it to me. I’ve put maybe 250 at the very most through it. I’ve had a boredscope down it and it’s pristine.

    Mate, sit on it till the dust clears, otherwise you can only sell to someone in area and it is worth a lot more than you are asking, sitting on my hands not to hit it myself and I have no need for it!
