What's the lifespan on that-- 300 shots??-- she'll likely be dead by the time you get a load for it. I think much more than the 7stw is a problem in 7mm; you just don't get enough bore life to get one working before it's dead unless the stars align really well. I'd do a monster like that if I could get enough bore life to shoot critters for a few years with it, but I just don't see it happening.

Re: big 7 or big 30

No clue.....You might be surprised. Ask Kirby Allen. He's on here. His handle is "Fiftydriver". I'm sure he could shed some more light about the Allen Magnums. He's a really nice guy...Don't be afraid to ask questions.

You should get about 800 to 900 about 150 rounds under the great stw. For me i will take performance over barrel life every day and when her times up get a new barrel. If you want to shoot as far as you can performance is a must.
