A couple quick questions for ya. I see you guys have done 1 day intro to LR shooting & hunting classes in the past. What is the cost of doing this? Also I was wondering, I know you don't do any smithing work other than builds now, could you recommend your favorite brake and somebody on the west side to install it? Thank you

I think the 7mm SAUM that he built for me would work great out to 800 yards. I haven't started reloading yet so ammo is hard to find and expensive.

I would like a LW Hunter in 7mm

A 7 mag or 300wm would be tough to beat.   A 7 saum would be in the running as well but the 7 mag will get you a little more.   Something like our new Carbon Hunter would give you the light weight yet still be able to run a more effective brake.   Lots of choices on cartridges that will all do the job

My 7mm SAUM shoots lights out. 3 for 3 on hunts with it. Haven't used any of my other guns sense I got this one.

Travis.....do you find your builds shoot certain bullets better? Are there certain brands (hunting w/ high bc) that you gravitate to?

I primarily shoot Berger and Hornady bullets personally.  The rifles will shoot just about any bullet with a little work, but my test ammo either has Berger or Hornady bullets.  If there is factory ammo available, I will test it through them as well.  Have been really impressed with the Hornady Precision Hunter lineup.  Everything from 6 Creed to 300WM has been under 1/2 moa and very good consistency.  One of my latest LE contract builds the dept wanted to run 147 ELD match Hornady match ammo.  In testing, the ammo shot in the .1's consistently for 5 shot groups.

Next question.  Do you have serial numbers on your guns? I assume you have to in some manner... :dunno:?
