Gunwerks HAMR: 2+ Mile 375 Cheytac System

Gunwerks HAMR

Long range shooting has always been a popular test of skill. In recent years, the sport of extreme long range shooting has grown, though it is largely hampered by a dearth of acceptable shooting locations and a cost of entry barrier. The new gun system from Gunwerks may test your ability to find both a long enough range and enough spare change in the couch.

Gunwerks HAMR

The Gunwerks HAMR system is a bolt action rifle in a performance chassis with a matching scope and bipod. It is chambered for the 375 Cheytac cartridge. Out of the box, the company claims 2000 yard shots are immediately possible, and states that the capable range of this system is in excess of two miles.

The video below shows a couple of shooters putting rounds down range with the gun:

The gun uses a heavy fluted 29″ barrel. At the end of the barrel is a ported three chamber brake to help tame the effects of recoil. On top, the company includes a Nightforce ATACR 7-35x 56 F1 scope. Gunwerks includes a custom laser engraved turret.

The gun is not for everyone, and the pricing is likely to keep it in the hands of just a few. The suggested retail price is $12,500 as configured. The company states these are limited to a single run with no plans to do a second.

    12.5K really ain’t that bad for what you’re getting.. But… I’ll just stick with my Barrett.. This is more accurate, but the cost of ammo alone..

    For the extreme stuff I’ll stick to the couple other bolt guns I’ve inherited through work not paid for..

    I want that jacket!

    • Any idea what it is?

    • Suppressed

      I have no practical interest in this rifle but I opened this article just so I could comment and ask if anyone knows where to get that hoodie/jacket.

    Up to this point in my life I have not had any interest in shooting farther than 500yd. Why do I want this so badly?

      You have recently realized you can’t run away as quickly as you used to?

  • Malthrak

    I cant conceive of any place I’d have to shoot something like this to actually make proper use of it XD

      Seriously? I can think of dozens of….uses.

    Pro tip. You can shoot long range at shorter ranges if you use a worse bullet for it. Like, 300 meters with 5.56 is easy peasy, right? 300 meters with .22 LR, not so much.

      Ah, the shooting version of driving a slow car fast instead of a driving a fast car slow.

      • iksnilol

        I guess.

        It’s also hella fun, and cheap so you can do it til the cows come home.

          I used to have a first gen 1.8L Mazda Miata. It wasn’t anywhere near as fast as my Mazdaspeed3 (even weighing close to 800lbs less isn’t enough for 115 wheel horsepower to overcome 295), but it was more fun, and man were tires, wheels, and brakes cheap.

    Kuiu is good stuff, and reasonably priced.
