There was a gentleman on here that built one! Started out named the 284 Jazz then renamed it to 284 Thor! Pretty impressive!!! Lots of giddy up go!!! Still havnt ruled one out!! Beltless I think! Also. If they ever come out with the 26 nosler, there are some already making plans for a 284 nosler! Just something to consider.

Re: 7 mm lrm

I went back and forth between 300 win, 7mm rem mag and 7 LRM. For me I decided to toss the 300. Why? 70% because of kick, 30% because of bullet selection BC. Then I compared the 2 7mms and just decided a semi wildcat was something I was ready to try. As a brand new baby long range shooter (BNBLRS), my decisions probably don't fit most of you.

I pick up my L-1000 next week at Gunwerks. It will at least be a good starter gun and maybe much more as far as long range shooting goes.

Re: 7 mm lrm

From what I have seen it is easier to get accuracy and velocity of 3100 fps out of the 7-300 than the lrm. And with a with a 28" barrel and rl 33 can hit 3200 fps with the 7-300. My vote is the 7-300.

Re: 7 mm lrm

I've just finished working up a load with my 7-300wm. 27 inch tube 9 twist benchmark is shooting the 180 Bergers at 3120 using h-1000. After I found my load I made some more rounds using never fired brass that I necked down and it shoots the same as once fired brass.
I'd have to say 7-300 for sure and if / when Berger comes out with the 195 grain 7mm that case is gonna be just about perfect for that bullet.

Re: 7 mm lrm

I'm in for the 7mm Dakota, it's a hell of a round! I've shot it to 1400 yds with repeatable accuracy out of a heavy hunting rifle (12.4LBS) Its always reliable and feed flawlessly. I feed mine the 190 Matrix Ballistics, but with jackets uavailable I'm headed to the berger 180.

Re: 7 mm lrm

Little OT, but just want to give a shout out to Chris @ Benchmark Barrels.
I have one of their 8T, 6.5 barrels in a 6.5 Leopard center-grip XP-100 specialty pistol and it is an awesome barrel!

Re: 7 mm lrm

I'd have to agree that all my benchmark barrels have been great shooters as well. That's all I'm using from now.

Had the 7-300 out to 1312 yards yesterday. 29.75 Moa. The kestrel Horus called for 31.3 Moa. Very impressed with the kestrel as well.
