Very nice.

Mine will be a 21 inch 7 saum with a TBAC Ultra 7 and similar sized scope. Should weigh very close to the same.

Hoping to see it late this week.

I'm going to go ahead and order glass on the chance I can hunt this rifle opening weekend, but my hopes are fading.

Looks good. Wonder how many are left? Seems most that are still waiting (like me) are waiting on 7mm08s

I'm waiting on a 7 SAUM and expecting a call today.

I believe they had an issue getting the 7mm barrels. Mine came in an inch longer than requested but not going to sweat it. Hope to have a minute to do some minimum load work and take it as a backup on my elk hunt in two weeks.

FFL received it yesterday morning and i picked it up after work. Got scope mounted last night and shot it at lunch today.

Bore sighted at 25. 1 shot at 25, 1 shot at 100, adjusted scope and shot 3 times. 5 shots no cool down with hornady whitetail 139 gr. Pretty good for non match grade factory ammo and shots 3,4,&5. Man this thing is light.

APR knocked it out of the park once again. Hoping to smack at least a couple doe with it in a couple of weeks.

20" 7mm08
Vortex LHT 3-15x42
