Re: 7mm AM

yea good point. i talked breifly with him by email because i was originally interested in the 6.5 AM or the 257 AM and he thought that the 7MM AM would prob be the best choice. so while i have been waiting for a response i figured i would put out some questions on here and see what everyone elses thoughts were. what i want is something i can take and blow up milk jugs at 1000-1500 yds and something also that is devistating on big game. i shoot have a 7MM abolt so i do have a lot of 7MM bullets that i can play with on reloading but i dont shoot anything out of that gun over 165.

Re: 7mm AM

The 7mm AM will do this with a 160 accubond loaded rather mildly

wanna shoot a long ways, load up the 200 gr wildcats, you won't regret buying a 7mm AM

I would think you could get quite a bit more MV out of your 30-378 Wby than 2905fps. My accuracy load is 2915 fps in my 300 Win Mag with a 25 1/2" Lilja barrel. I can shoot them up to 2960 fps but accuracy seems better at 2915. No criticism intended. Just an observation. Perhaps you're accuracy is best at 2905...

Re: 7mm AM

my chronograph might be not accurate. the max load i can load up with that 210 berger is 102 grains of H1000 so I have room to move up but it just seems like the gun groups better at that load. now i have some 180 Accubonds loaded up with 118 grains of H50BMG and there going 3495 but they seem to destroy the meat pretty bad.
