    7mmWSM

    Basically brand new custom rem700, I had it custom built by Greg Duley ages ago as an all rounder/open tops rifle, fired 2 rnds at 890 for 2 hits on a 10" gong to verify range card and since then fired another 5 rnds on two occasions to confirm zero before trips that never eventuated:-( I have 43 rnds of 162 amax and 140 accubonds, a full box of 140 amax pills and most of a bottle of RL22. I also have a Redding competition die set.
    Rifle is light but I don't have a decent set of scales to weigh it.
    I can't see this ever getting used with the amount of time I spend away working.
    I sold my sako 75 and then built this, then realized I don't like Remington actions!
    Scope is a March 2.5-25 illuminated and is in the same condition at the rifle, never even seen the bush.
    Rifle alone owes me $6,800 I would consider trades on high end AR parts. Won't sell scope by itself and would rather keep it, but would sell both for the right money or may sell scope after gun is gone.
    I know I'm going to lose a heap on this, but has anyone got a realistic idea what the bare rifle is worth?
    Make an offer.

    I can't seem to attach pictures from my iPhone, any chance I can email them to a member to post?

    Cheers

    What's the twist rate? Interesting that you have stuck with the lighter 7mm projectiles with a reasonable amount of room for powder.
    Nice rifle non the less.

    Measuring using a cleaning rod the twist looks to be 1 in 9

    You'd want way more than I could afford - passing through Turangi tomorrow on the way home from Far North.
    Have rellies in Turangi, but they'll be at work. Peet & Robyn Bakkenes - you might know them. Robyn is a cousin.
    Anyhow - good luck with the sale of the rifle.
    Wal.
