The 7 AM would be a fantastic choice. Good idea!

    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.

    I would imagine barrel life isnt 300 rounds probably 600 to 800 if you treat it nice

    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.
