Re: 7mmRUM 200gr Wildcat?
My 7mm Am and Kirby’s newest 7mm Am both use the Lilja 3 groove, 30”, 1-7 barrels. A 1-8 barrel would probably work fine for the 200 grain Wildcats but the 1-7 gives you a buffer, so to speak, for now, with the 200’s. The 1-10 just couldn’t reliably stabilize the big slugs and things were just too inconsistent to be reliable.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking the 200 grain 7mm Wildcat ULD RBBT is the heaviest there will be. If I was gonna get a new barrel, and I had the horsepower to handle the biggest 7mm slugs, I’d make it a 1-7. In the coming months you won’t be disappointed.
Kirby, Richard and Dan recommend the 1-7 and if it was me, I’d look at the developments in the last few months, read between the lines and then understand their reasoning. I’d bet that those of us shooting the big 7mm slugs, and have the right barrel twist and horsepower to handle it, are gonna be even happier in the upcoming months.
