Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?
well another learning phase working with this rifle. i have 21 rounds through the barrel which mean little to nothing, because i got a wrong reading of oal length using just a sized down 300 win mag gauge for the hornady set up. my first 9 shots where jammed about 100 thousands, came home with a zeroed gun at least, did some measuring and talked to bill about what is going on, brass was fine, but bullets were going in too far, so i put a bullet in a fired case and shoved it in being all marked up with sharpie i could see where it was pushing it to, so i measured that and got 100 thousands less so i went 103 thousands shorter, took those out and fired them off and still had some issues, came home talked to bill about the gauge and then got a hold of brad and asked him to machine out one of my fired cases to make a clean gauge for me, got that done found out over all i was about 150 thousands jammed with the first 9. now i have a baseline to work from, but even with a sized piece of brass once fired i get resistance closing the bolt, so now we are thinking head space/ shoulder bump which i have never bumped any cases so this is all new. i also sent an e mail to where the reamer came from to try to get a diagram for measurements of my chamber. hope to get this all figured out with in the next few weeks and out shooting again. this gun doesn't kick any more than a 243 liking it so far.
in my pressure test which i am sure numbers are not worth much i went from 73-77 grains with no real pressure problems with velocities ranging from 3050-3222fps, with all 9 shots within 3" at 200 yards.
