Are you guys using a 300 Win gauge to headspace the 7mm-300?

I just tossed a bunch of WW and RP brass we shot in a box and took it to storage. I could send one of those but it will be a few days before I get to town when the PO is open.

I am not sure about the headspace gauge I will ask the smith that threads and chambers for me..

Unless you order a head space gauge specifically to head space off of the shoulder all belted magnums with a .532" head size use the same head space gauges which head spaces off of the belt.

I think I have some PMC cases that aren't loaded from my old 7-300wm.

Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Hey guy's. This is my first post on this site so please bear with me. Been reading
About the 7mm/300 win mag an made up my mind to build one. Gonna be using
a 700 rem PSS(I've been told that it is a cilvian model of the M24 sniper rifle.
Just gonna get my smith to ream the barrel that's on it for now for a starting
point. Gonna be shooting 180 Bergers or A-Max, probably H-1000. Been reading
the tread and have gotten a lot of good info!Thanks to all! Any new info will be welcomed. Been shooting Rem model 700, 26" barrel, 168 Berger, 71grH-1000.
Sound pretty warm but very acurrute(dime size groups at 100 yards) sometimes
smaller depending on me! Thanks again.

Just finished another one off a Weatherby action with a 28" Hart.




The first shots from it while braking in the barrel and working up the charge weight. These were shot after cleaning the barrel each round. 71 through 75 gr all 5 tore one hole. I think that is a node... I backed off to 73 as 74 and 75 were showing slight pressure in RWS brass.
