    My new custom 7mm Saum

    Here's something I've been thinking about for a long time.
    This is my perfect rifle.....

    Pierce Skele-Ti short action
    Peak 44 stock
    Proof 20inch 8 twist
    Hardy compact
    Triggertec Dimond
    Nxs 2.5-10x42

    Shoots like a laser and is a dream to carry

    Big shout at to Cam from Alpine Precision. Great to deal with once again. All my indecision paid off!

    Thanks to Greg at Custom Guns for putting it together and opening up on a Sunday for me to pick up.

    Looks like an awesome all-rounder. What a piece of kit!

    Jezz...
    Reminds me of a joke.
    Two older gentlemen were out hunting.

    First old guy: My eyes are not as good as they used to be, did you see if my shot hit the deer?
    Second old codger: I did, but now I can't remember...

    A good job and a good wife has been the ruin of many a good hunter.

    It's just long enough. A shorter throat by 30 to 40 thou would of been better.
