Re: 7 mm lrm
So what would the ideal case capacity range be for a high-performance 7mm be? Grains of H2O.
My #'s are likely not super accurate, just flipping through some various manuals and looking online for #'s. Just trying to put the cases in order and see if anybody can chime in to what the ideal case is.
280 Rem AI ~65 grains H2O
7wsm ~73 grains H2O
7 rem mag ~78 grains H2O
7-300 win mag ~81 grains H2O
7 LRM ~88 grains H2O
7mm Dakota ~89 Grains H2O
7 stw ~92 grains H2O
284/26 Nosler ~97 grains H2O
7mm RUM ~105 grains H2O
What others would you add? It would look to me that the range people use the most for LR rifles would fall somewhere between the WSM and the STW. Looks like the LRM falls right into the sweet spot on the higher end of things. Again, I'm sure my #'s could be adjusted, please feel free to correct them.
Then the factors such as belt/beltless, shoulder angle, overall length, etc come in to play to design the rifle. So many things to consider, it can get overwhelming to try and make a decision.
