I am a firm believer in the "one shot, one kill" method, so single-shots don't really bother me. But I use a 7mmRM for deer hunting because usually there's multiple deer in the field, and if I need meat, I can jack another one in there real quick and dispatch a doe as well, if I need to.

Before you ask I have killed deer out to 542 yards but not with this gun. My problem is if I seat the Berger in the rifling the loaded round will not eject without removing the bolt, I see three options, set the barrel back and have the chamber recut for the bullet, modify the ejector or switch bullets. I don't want to set the barrel back and there is not enough meat on the ejector to back it up .030. that leaves another bullet. am I missing an option, what bullet would you recommend, my twist is 1 in 8 and 140 amax require a 1 in 7.5. Thanks for any ideas you have.
Move to the Accubond or Hornady Interbond or perhaps Swift Sirocco, whichever shoots best for you. those three bullets will not fail you if you can put it in the right spot.

I don't mind single shots I shoot at the range more than I get to hunt I don't remember the last time I loaded my mag...
