Finally got my 1000 yard gun done!

Just thought I'd stick a pic of my .284 Winchester 1000 yard F-Open gun setup IMG_20190217_100747153.jpg on here now that it is finished. McMillan KESTROS R stock painted by a buddy who does nice graphics and LOVES to paint, PT & G bolt, custom knob with .284 cartridge head in it, Krieger Light Varmint SS barrel--chambered and headspaced by LRI in Sturgis,, VORTEX Golden Eagle scope, LRI accurized Rem 700 Long Action, Timney Calvin Elite trigger, Single shot aluminum follower inside the no bottom metal stock. Rest is a SEB NEO that I built a couple of sets of feet for (one with spikes that I can hammer on for softer ground and one set with rubber centers that contact a bench or other hard surface). I built the ammo block was built out of bits of scrap stuff found here and there in my shop. I think it looks OK, but now, truth be told, the gun looks way better than I can shoot!! Even though I am not like a shooting star or whatever, I guess can I try to look good doing it!! Trouble seems to be that I am a wind doping DUMMY!!

Thanks...but now the barrel is shot (or very close to it at about 1500 rounds) out and I am contemplating a new 284 barrel...just haven't settled on a twist rate----9.0 or 8.5---not to mention that it seems everyone is out of stock on the weight/contour barrels in those twists! Its either do that or tear the whole thing apart and sell everything except the barre!!

there is a barrel maker in Germany I use to custom make my barrels to my taste or whim he is not cheap but will make it any way you want length, twist laser cut or 4 button pass and any material your call wait time from time of ordering and paying for is at times 6 months

Damn I need to brush up. I was thinking 7s had better SD but not as good BC as 6.5. Appreciate the info
the 190g 7mm hybrid has a G1 BC of .751 the 184g hybrid has a G1 of .695 and like i say along with the higher BC's the heavier bullet will retain more energy.
