Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Its gonna cost you deffinetly, you may be able to have a guy ream it for you, but you will have to send the action to them. You may be better off getting the scetch of the reamer and having one made so you can have someone you know ream it if you know someone. Other wise rent a 7-300 win reamer and get shooting

Anyone know of anyone in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, or Montana that will just ream a barrel and not cost over 400-500.00 bucks?
Jfive,
Dave Young, Owner Of "Young's Gunsmithing" In Tracy, Montana (Just Outside Of Great Falls) Is An Absolute Miracle Worker On Anything Metal. The Downside To His Meticulous Attention To Detail Is A Lengthy Wait. But, Price Is Fair, And Quality Is Phenomenal. He Built My Practical, Has Done A Magazine Well Mod On A Model 70 I Have, A Few Triggers Here And There, As WelL As A Number Of Projects For My Dad To Include A Custom BlueprintEd Tikka T3 LeftHand 6.5X55 Swede. You Will Not Be Disappointed, Unless You Want It This Week. He Can Also Obtain Any Barrel You Want From Any Of The Major Players In Aftermarket Barrels. I Highly Recommend You Give Dave A Ring, Tell Him Greg And Jim W. Sent You.

Pac-Nor in Oregon chambers it, they even do Pre-fit/ short chamber barrels.

The chambering is listed under "Wilcats" . I have owned and shot several of their barrels that shot well. Especially a .336 neck. .308 Baer barrel I had that was increadable. The .300 Ultra mag before the .300 Ultra mag.

Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

I was able to pick up a box of the new accubond long range hunting 175gr bullets, so It would be nice to be able to try them out and be ready to hunt next year. Pac nor has a few other 7mm wildcats that not many talk about. Does anyone still use the 7mm super mash. I have read that you can form brass from 300 win mag casings. It would be nice to start by reaming out a factory 24" barrel, and buy a longer one later.

If You Get Things Rolling With Dave Now, You Will Have A Rig For Next Years Season. He May Be Slow, But Not That Slow. Dave Can Do Re-Chamber Work Or Raw Blank Barrels. My Practical Is A 30 Inch Lilja 3 Groove Sendaro Contour Fluted With A Break. The Joint Seam On The Break Is Blended So Well That It Looks A Single Piece With The Barrel. Dave Also Fluted And Step Threaded A Lilja AR Patrolman 24 Inch Bull To Fit A Wilson Combat Compensator for Me. The AR barrel Work Took Two Weeks. My 7 Practical, Due To Lead Times On The Action, Barrel, And Stock Took 9 Months. Cost On The Ar Barrel Was ArouNd $150, The Completely Custom 7 Practical Was 4100.

Dave's 7Mm X 300 Win Mag Reamer Is Specifically Cut And Sized For The Berger 180Gr.VLD. that Doesn't Mean The Noslers Won't Work, Of Course. But It Might Take A Little Longer To Find Your Load For Them.
