Thanks a lot! I will give you a ring about load data. If I remember correctly your gun has a 26" barrel and a csr brake right? I just have had to push my 280ai too hard for my liking. I have many reasons for building the 7lrm so I hope my wants are met. Mike at gunwerks has been easy to deal with also. Thanks again.

    Barrel is 28" + brake and I have velocities up to nearly 3200fps with the 180vld, but I wanted the Hornady brass to last for more than a couple of firings.

    Not sure on the oal but I don't think a 10 twist is enough.
