7mm Dakota ?

I have a 700 mag action with a pt&g .704 dia mag bolt, thinking about putting a 7mm togather. what about the 7mm Dakota? Anyone using one of these with big bullets? and how fast can you push them. Wanting to build somthing for 1200 yard big game hunting that will work on a mag bolt and has good brass avalable. ????

Re: 7mm Dakota ?

i've got a 7mm Dakota barrel, loaded brass and recoil lug for sale.
I'll take 175.00 shipped to your door. 26" SS Remington countour.
42 loaded bullets with 3 different loads . From what the told me I bought
the rifle from, it's a shooting stick. Said he shot an antelope over 300 yd and dropped in its tracks.
