7mm Allen mag build need help

I'm ordering parts now for a 7 AM build and I'm trying to decide what configuration to use for bottom metal. ADL, BDL or DBM? What have you guys done on your builds and what would you do if you could. I only want to build this once so I want to do it right the first time.

Thanks,

BB is right SINGLE SHOT!
If you have to have a repeater ask Kirby what HE recommends. Asking the rest of us is like asking a Nascar driver how to build the car, he don't know he just drives the damn thing.

Re: 7mm Allen mag build need help

Single shots are great and I do like them but if you want a repeater, the very best I have found for the 7mm AM is the HS Precision DM system. No need for a mag length longer then standard 3.670". The Bergers can not handle top end 7mm AM velocity levels and all other bullets work just great in conventional length mag boxes. I have been very happy with the 175 gr SMK and it easily fits in a standard length mag box.

Just comes down to personal preference. A solid bottom stock and single shot receiver is certainly the strongest and most rigid choice but the repeaters do shoot very well also so it really your choice, either way, I assure you she will shoot very well for you.

Mine has the HSP DBM and if you guy's single shots shoot any better......How do you stand it?
