Re: 7mm Allen Mag test rifle finished.....
I guess it just depends on what you want to do and how far away you want to be able to do it reliably and with the precision necessary at the very extended ranges.
If you run the numbers in something like Exbal on the 270 AM and the 169.5 Wildcat ULD, it will amaze you.
Then, run the numbers on the 7mm AM with the 200 grain Wildcat ULD, and you will find that it does it easier, farther, faster, with more power, and possibly most important under field conditions, does it with far less wind drift.
You can load the 7mm AM with 140 grain laser pills and quite possibly do it at about 3900f.p.s. for the ďred mistĒ effect. You can then switch to the 200 grain Wildcats and really reach out and touch something, especially if itís the size of a deer, elk etc.
I chose the 7mm because itís going to be my main hunting rifle. As an added bonus I can also load the little lasers when the 200ís arenít needed, but Iíve got a feeling the 200ís will be itís main diet.
Itíll also be nice because we will also have the 270 A.M in addition to the 7mm A.M. to play with.
