Re: Very Bad Choice Made By This Piggy

What exactly is a "Warp 7"...if you don't mind me asking?

I won't be surprised if I get a simple answer back...I'm sure It's a stupid question?

Re: Very Bad Choice Made By This Piggy

The Warp 7 is based on an improved 300 Win. First form the neck and then fire form--less body taper and a 35 degree shoulder. I did not name it Speedy did---the old Star Trek was one of his favorites!! It was designed to be a LR BR cartridge but the reamer had never been used so I tried it out. Shoots .3 and sometimes .2 out of that sporter configuration. The tube is a Krieger, action is Kodiak, Jewell Trigger, McMillan Stock, Speedy Rings, HS Precision Bottom Metal and Mag (I bead blasted it to match the rest of the rifle), Speedy Brake and a USO Scope.

Re: Very Bad Choice Made By This Piggy

So, basically all you do is take a .300 Win. Mag. & neck it down to a .284 bullet....correct?

Judging by the picture, it almost seemed that there were 2 "necks" in the casing? The standard neck...then another one (much shorter than the first), near where crest (where the projectile enters)?

Or is merely an optical illusion, from where the neck is crimped to the bullet?

Deer...I wanna see what it will do to a deer...I kind of like the way this "Warp 7" caliber sounds...

How much would you charge to rebarrel a Ruger M77 MK-II 7mm Rem. Mag. with one of those same "Warp 7" barrels EXACTLY like the one in the pictures?

And true-up & square-up everything?
