    Bill,

    What velocities have you been able to get out of your 7mm SAUM? I considered a 7mm and 300 SAUM but have not been convinced as of yet.

    I'll seconded Michael suggestion of 308 Winchester. Can't go wrong with it. I just discovered this round lately and I having a ball with it. I just bought an Obermeyer 308 barrel from another member and it is going to be chambered for another, you guess it 308.

    Thanks Coyboy. Like I said, I must have been in that cave.

    I have always wanted to tinker with a 260 or 260 improved. Seems like the barrels last a whole lot longer than the famed 6.5x284 with not that much less performance. Also seems like it fills the gap between the 243 and the 308 very nicely. So many fun and interesting cartridges (408 CT, 280AI, 260AI, 7AM, etc...) and yet so little cash and even less time!

    Yep, the 284 with some 120g TSXs would be the goods.
