For those that don't know.
The bore diameter of a 7mm/.284cal is .277 hence the 7mm designation.

Not to be argumentative but my conversion tables show
that 7.00mm = .2755in.

So a 270 is actualy slightly larger than 7mm.

If this is wrong I will stand corrected.

Will do. I am going to try AA Magpro and Ramshot Magnum powder.

I think .277 actually converts to 7.03mmm (or something else as close to dammit as that). Maybe the mechanical engineers out there can be more accurate for us and explain!
