Re: 7mm rem mag velocity
This is just my 2cts! I've shot a 7 mm mag for a little over 30 yrs, I know an understand that every barrel an rifle, etc are differant. That being said, back 20 plus yrs ago the load I used in my 7 mag(24in barrel) was 64gr IMR 4350 cci 250 primer, WW brass. Was gettin about 3020 fps! Another load I'm using today is 71gr of H-1000, both loads are with a 160 grn Gamekings. Been shooting the 168 Bergers with the same load. I've never took the Gamekings over 600 yards but they do work well to that distance I know! If it was me( an everybody is differant ) from what I've been reading I think you have your heart set on a new barrel! If so make sure that you have confidence in your smith an feel comfortable with the decision you make! The 7 stw is a good round, the 7/300 win mag is also a good one too! Hope this helps, just my 2cts!
