that was a good read. thanks a lot.
the 7mmSAUM looks pretty stinking good. get a little better performance then the 6.5's, and you get almost the same performance as the 7wsm with 7-10% less powder. don't think i want to shoot the 180's(.659 bc), but i think the 168vld (.617bc) or the 162amax(.625bc) would be pretty impressive.
one think that i was seeing was that the guys were pushing the 180's to 3k from the 7saum, but the loads for the 160 class bullets were closer to 2900fps??? don't know why they were shooting slower then the 180's unless the accuracy node was slower??? any experience with speeds from the 162-168gr bullets?
it would do well in the SA, and a 24" barrel would be ok as well.
i think i'm getting closer
