Maybe I'm way off, but I was hoping I could get 2900fps with the 169g uld out of a 270 wsm and a 26" tube.

Maybe if you had Kirby make it a 270-7mm wsm. the 7mm wsm has a little more case capacity
[/ QUOTE ]I actually had Kirby make one of these for me last year it has slightly less powder capacity than a 7mm wsm because it is based off a Norma 270 wsm case necked up to 7mm. it might be just what you are looking for remingtonman (I read your other post "Kirby" in gen. dis) Kirby made mine on a long Sako action that I had so that there are no magazine length issues. his reamer has a long throat so you can utilize all the powder capacity, so far the only bullet I have used has been the 160gr Accubond that shoots at 3190fps (200fps faster than factory 7mmRem Mag barrel it replaced) I really wanted to use a higher B.C. bullet so I bought some Berger 168gr VLD's they wont even come close to touching the lands so I then got some Berger 180gr VLD's perfect fit and they have a B.C. of .684!!! (highest of any Berger VLD) plus they will work with a 1-9" twist. I think if you want to use the 200gr wildcat you need a faster twist but the reamer I believe was specificaly made for this bullet so that xphunter and others could use them in specialty pistols.
.684B.C. at about 3000fps something to consider,let us know what you decide.
