Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Good choice Kiwi Nate, handling wise, it doesn't really make a difference. Neither is ideal for brush hunting. I may even go for a 32" or 30" for if it were mine, so I could have it set back.

I really love this round, have been toying with the idea for a long time and just haven't gotten around to building one. Broz's experiences however have me pretty well decided to build one, instead of my planned .284win.

This sounds like a heck of a round. 180's around 3200 fps would be killer. It would make the rifle shoot flat!!! I am seriously considering having one built with a 28 inch barrel.

Now I gotta find someone that is interested in a custom 300 WSM that shoots like crazy.

This is my version--call it a Warp 7. Use a 150 SMK that runs at 3320fps with a 10fps deviation.

Not that I dont believe Broz, but I would be thrilled if someone would post some actual chrony results for the 180 Berger coming out of this thing....that would be awesome.

Well there is enough people interested, including my self, so I decided to go and see. I called my buddy and we went to bust s few rocks. I needed practise with the new Berger hybrids in my Lapua anyway. Just got back. Here is what the chrony said. The low and the high from the string.

You can read the chrony for your self, and like I said the drops are spot on using 3175 mv and .659 G1 BC in the Nightforce program with the 180 Berger.
