I also thought about the 300 Norma, but I think it's too much for the 270 to get decent barrel life. If I was to build a 7mm, with the same type of chriteria as stated before, I think the 284/300 Norma Improved would be perfect for a 190-195 gr bullet.

Those are out of my 270 Win w/ a 24" tube. Not really sure where that velocity is coming from.

If they don't work for you, look me up, I'll buy what you've got left.

I don't know, it's less capacity of the 270 Allen Mag and there are 800+ round rifles out there that have lived life at full throttle +. Take the Norma mag with the shorter powder column and idle it back the barrel life may do well.

Not much less if it's improved. I think my .30-338 Norma Imp was about 6 grains less capacity than a .300RUM. If you pushed the shoulder back to make the neck longer then you'd be down probably 10-12grains.
