Re: What magnum-boltface cartridge for long range

Do yourself a favor and go with the 7mm SAUM. It is a very efficient case. You can use 300 SAUM Norma and neck down if you want good brass. But I've read where guys are getting good results with Remington brass. You can still launch 180's at 2900-3050fps.

    I think Tank is on to something with the 7SAUM, looking for accuracy and barrel life over velocity I think it would be a solid choice. Though I've seen a couple 7mm-300wins that are wicked mean with a 180 Berger and should be stellar with the 195 Berger when it shows.

    What MV's do you get out of the 7-300 using 168 gr bergers with a 28" barrel?

    If you want to run a 180 gr at 3000 fps instead of going with max pressures in a 7 mag, 7wsm or 7saum why not go with a 7mm Dakota/STW/ RUM. Granted you already have a 7mm STW so why not go 300 RUM or 338 Edge/Lapua. You will be running a muzzle brake anyways so why not try something new?
