    That you are limited to ONE source of brass.
    That your rifle may not like that brass.
    That the brass may become unavailable.
    That YOU may not like the brass.
    That a 7 SAUM, 7SS, 7RM, 280AI, 7WSM, 284 will pretty well match or pass it AMONG OTHERS.
    That a 7mm is a great caliber but why build it on a case with such limited availability.
    Any SUPPOSED superiority pales in comparison to these things IMHO.
    My 7 SAUM is running harder than many LRM guns and it's a LOT shorter, more efficient and while brass availability for the SAUM SUCKS it's still a better situation than the LRM.

    I agree with most of this.....not everything is all bad At least you can buy brass NOW and you can buy it in quantity. I had one built before the 28 Nos came out. Wish I had waited......

    And if you don't reload, you will be spending $5 a trigger pull buying ammo from Gunwerks. While I have no doubt this is a fun cartridge, I think there are many others (listed above in a post) that will accomplish the same end goal without the worries of, everything listed in the above post.

    The risk vs reward doesn't make sense to me on this caliber, at this time.

    As is already stated above you limit yourself to one source of brass and reloading components, load data, and all for performance that is no improvement over existing 7mm cartridges.

    I have one I love it it performs great at 3095 but if I had it to do over it would be a 28 nosler.

    If I can't get mine to shoot anything other than 180 hybrid it may become a 28 nosler. 2950 with the 180"s. Guys on site are getting that with 7RM.
