Awesome. This bullet makes me want to start another build job - BAD. I just ran the ballistics in a 7mm STW . . . ridiculous.

Even better in the 7mm/338 Norma Mag.
If they stay together at velocities with a 8 twist barrel.

According to our die maker, the 7mm EOL tooling will not be available until Decemeber. I am working with them to push the date up but this is what I know to be true today.

Still the same timeline for the 7mm EOL? December for the tooling?

We are pushing to get the tooling sooner than December but this is the best information I have right now.

It's the same thing.

300 Norma is a necked down 338 Norma.
