Re: caliber for new build on long lenght action 06 bolt face
I don't think you'll reach the 7STW level but the 7mag level should be attainable, the 270 version will run with my 270 WSM with .650 BC 165gr bullets and I can run with a 7 mag or WSM easy. If you want the STW performance there are several great rounds that do that but all on a mag bolt face, the 284 Sherman is the most performance you'll get from that case but it's quite a little when you look at where you start with it. On a mag bolt face your looking at the 7STW, 7 Dakota or the 7 LRM then there are a couple versions of the 7-300 win mag all in the next notch up in performance.
