Re: 7 SAUM with too long of a throat???
I have a 7 saum that consists of a Douglas barrel screwed on a Savage action. I can't get a 162 gr Amax(2.970) to reach the lands and still fit in the mag, but the 160 gr Accubond(2.880) will, just barely. Both are .005 off the lands.
I have a drop chart for the A max out to 700 yds, I use them single shot for long range hunting shots or target practice. Up until I decide to take a shot over 400 yds I have the ABs loaded in the chamber and mag in case something steps out close.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
