Sweet rig, but the bolt’s on the wrong side.

I’m guessing with scope and all, right at 7lb. Looks like a nice mountain hunter.

Total weight- rifle, rings, scope (no bipod or ammo)

7lbs 5.8oz


Dropping to a VX5 or 6HD would get it right at 7 or below but I'm really excited to test out this Mark5HD--

Now to wait a few more weeks and see if I drew a Utah muley tag!

Dangit. I went back and forth between 7.6 and 7.8. Heck of a mountain rifle there!

Dang that's nice.

I'd like to hear the weight from you.

I'm building a similar rifle on the group build.
7 SAUM with .195 FB
20 inch barrel with Thunder Beast break / mount for an Ultra 7.
VX6HD 3-18 in seekins rings

I built on the SA and I’m assuming you went XM or long? I think your finished weight will be close to mine depending on the stock choice. That proof hunter is 19oz, which is crazy light and the forearm is still plenty rigid for loading up a bipod.

I loaded up some rounds at 2.95” coal and the longer 175/180 class do sit a ways back but they chamber fine so I’ll just have to see what the velocity is. Starting with 4831sc.

Sweet rig. Should be similar to the 2021 TBH build. I'm waiting on a 20" 7mm 08 in that one

Yeah it should be close. The AG / APR stock is just a few ounces more.

I did go long action but offset that will 2 inches less barrel.

I'd love to start with H1k but only have about 3 pounds which is held for my 30 nosler.

I'll likely run a ladder with H4350 and RL26. If the H will get any sort of decent speed I'll go that route as it should give single digit ES and great temp stability.

H4831 and H4831SC have been solid performers in both 6.5 and 7 SAUM.

Well let's keep this alive and share some data as it comes in-- I've got some H1k and RL26 as well to try out.

If I could find some 145LRX (or maybe go to Hammers) I'd love to work up a flat/fast mono load and a heavier/higher BC longer range load as well.

I've read that but don't have any. I do have 6 pounds of RL26 and 8 pounds of H4350.

BTW-I'd trade either of those for H1k if anyone is feeling generous....

Where are you located? I might be willing to let some h1k go for your rl26
