It has 700 plus and still driving tacks. We have not changed the seating depth either so I feel the throat is holding well.

We have seen 3200 but the program drops match well using 3175 for a MV with 180 Bergers and a G1 BC of .659.


Ordered the reamer this am.

Nate, did you usually use a no turn .316 neck? I ordered this reamer with .3155" neck.

    I chambered mine today!

    28" Mike Rock SS barrel.

    7mm-300WM .313" tight neck throated for 189grn Cauterucio VLd's.

    I'll get the scope on it monday and start breaking in the barrel...

    I'll say it before anybody else can chime in. Velocity is far SECONDARY to accuracy.

    But just for fun:


    I was creating my own reloading data for the custom cartridge because none exists.
    That load was 79 grains of retumbo behind a 180 SMK.

    7mm, 180 grain match king
    7-mm-300WM ("7mm Win Mag")
    30" Rock 8.9 twist
    Savage 110
