7mm SAUM

I have a lead on a 7MM SAUM Remington 700. It has a stainless barrel. It has a Leupold 6-18 scope on it. Nice gun, fired 40 times or so. I am curious on whether I should pursue it? My understanding it is a short action gun, so is it at all possible to rebarrel it to something more common if ammo gets too hard to find? Like a 308 Win? It is coming with 100 rounds of fired brass, and probably 40 rounds of factory Remington ammo.
What should I pay for it? Its in excellent condition.
Thanks!

Re: 7mm SAUM

The 7mm SAUM is a great cartridge and once you have some brass, you can load all the ammo you need. The 700 is also the action to have if you do decide to rebarrel. You will be limited to short action cartridges with a magnum bolt face (SAUM's or WSM's) unless you replace the bolt.

The 7mm SAUM has a magnum bolt face, so if you re barrel,ed it it could be any short magnum without any bolt work.

The 7 SAUM is a good round and if you reload there should be no problems (Any more than with
any other components)getting bullets and primers.

If it is a factory rifle with a stainless barrel and action, It should be worth anywhere from $500.00
to $700.00 depending on the condition without the scope. the scope, if in good condition should be
$400.00 +.

If it is an after market barrel add $150.00 to $300.00 to the price depending on the make of
the barrel.

You do the math and see if it is in or below those prices. I would not pay more than that for it
in any configuration.

Thanks. He said he'd give me the dies for it. The gun is really clean. Like Perfect. I think i'll be able to get gun and scope under $1000. He want's it to get used. I would like to get into reloading if i buy it.
Thanks!

Re: 7mm SAUM

Should be buying a Remington 700 within the next week. May be a little longer. The plan is to shoot it this Sunday. If I like it I'll buy it.
It's a 7mm SAUM. Stainless barrel and Leupold vx-2 6-18 scope. Shot 100 times or less. Really clean shape. Not sure what length barrel.. didn't measure. Just looking for a long range target gun. Aside from ammo being absurd for it, what is it's max effective range, given a good shooter?
It's $700 with 100 empty cases, 30-40 rounds of Remington ammo, and the dies for it.
