Whats not to like about a 168gr Berger going approx. 3200fps out of a 26" barrel. Put a DE brake on it, and it's a pussycat for recoil.

A little flatter and more powerful than the the 7 mag. Very accurate. Less fincky to load for, and more efficient than the 7RUM. Can't think of any downside to it. IMO it's the best all around of the overbore 7mms.

Of course, the ultimate 7mm is the 7AM (which is based on the ultrastrong 338 Lapua case).

Would I have to be a reloader for the 7AM?

Email Kirby and ask if he sells loaded 7AM ammo.

I dont want to have to just depend on 1 person though. I want a cartridge that commercial ammo is available.
