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.

Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

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...

Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

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
