Re: .270 Wildcat idea for 165/175 Matrix

I was wanting to stay away from any belted cases. I did think about the Dakota cases, but the price is a big turn off. The last time I checked they were about $2.50 each. Desides, the long neck LRM should help the barrel last longer.

    Last I checked, you could get the Dakota cases cheaper by the 100 lot direct from Dakota... about $2.00 each... and the Hornady made 300 Dakota brass that I got was very good quality IMO. But the 7 LRM is definitely a good case for a reasonable price.

    I didn't know that, thanks.

    There's nothing wrong with belted cases if they're necked sized after being fireformed in your chamber.

    I have been working up a load using the 165 matrix in my 270 weatherby accumark ended up at 3080 fps with a 26" barrel. I don't think the 10 twist barrel will stabalize the 175s

    The 175 might surprise you. In getting the to run 1/2 MOA at 2840 FPS at 7200'.

    This thread makes me Happy, Happy, Happy! I think the 7 LRM would be a good base for wildcatting this with lower chamber pressure, the 300 Win would be also no problem with the belt but being a guy that dislikes the belt I understand.

    Another case that has merit IMO is the 300 Norma mag case if you want to run lower chamber pressure OR you want to push it!
