Re: 7mm-08-vs-7mm-08AI

You can get a Wyatt extended magazine from Brownells for the Rem short action so the 284 will work. I have one up the gunsmith now being finished. My first wildcat was a 7x57AI years ago, I got almost 7mag velocity with bullets up to 160gr using 10gr of powder less. Another choice would be the rem short mag case in 7mm or the wsm case give you plenty of velocity with either and not have to fireform cases, sure want to use the Wyatt magazine box and have them throated out long to get alittle more case capacity with those cases. Only reason I'm talking about different cases is I got a 7mm Kreiger barrel coming and I'm looking for a caliber. I think the 7-08 is a good case left alone, I use to shoot a shorten 7-08 think that improved that case alittle got better velocity than the standard 7-08. I was shooting a short 308 back then so making cases for either wasn't a big deal.

Re: 7mm-08-vs-7mm-08AI


So just what sort of mods can you do to the Remm 700 to extend the OAL to 2.95.

I had a quick look at the feed ramp last night and cant see that you can move it foward much as the front face is really the metal that the bolt lug transfers its load to.

The most you could do would be to steepen up the ramp so it starts at 2.90 ish. But my 243 dosnt really feed that well as it is so if it was any steeper it must put a lot of lateral load on the bullet as it feeds. Kind of defeats the purpose of going to all that trouble with competition seater and making sure there is minimal runout, then have a steep feed ramp that potentially pushed the bullet out if alignment.

NZVarminter, See my reply under your other inquiry about the 284 in a SA Rem. Good luck.
