Re: Can you go SA caliber in LA action? .270 currently

Hi what about getting some of the new Hornady 375Hornady brass and neck it to 7mm or 270 it has the same rim as the 270 so that will be fine but it has a base diameter at around .529 i believe and is the same case length as the 30-06. You could have one of the first wildcats on the new case. You could also look at necking it to 30 or 338 it would give you the equivelent or all the above diameter projectiles based on a 300 Win Mag case.

What a chance to be right at the start of wildcating that new case. Just choose the projectile diameter if you go for 270 get a twist to stabalise the 195gr Wildcat and if you go with the 7mm get a 8 twist 7mm so the 200gr Wildcats stabalise and you wil also be able to use any other 7mm projectile in it aswell.

Cheers Bill
