Thanks,

I'm using Berger 180VLD Hunting. I'll get the measurements and possibly some pics... if I remember how to post them. I'm pretty sure the bullet does seat past the neck/shoulder junction and easily fits in a std Rem magazine box.

    Shoulder width after firing is .516 and comes out of the sizer die .513 for my rifle.

    The OAL is 3.455 with the 180VLD hunting and the Hornady Comparator length is 2.738. The base of the bullet seats to the base of the shoulder.

    Might want to call Gunwerks, as I said in a post on page 9, we bought a reamer for a 7LRM for $235 from Gunwerks. I did not do the transaction, my smith did. Might be a different story smith to smith rather than an individual trying to buy a reamer.

    I own a 7mm x 375 Ruger and it is not the same as the 7 LRM. I got my reamer from PT&G. 7 LRM's shoulder is moved back for a longer neck. Not so with the 7mm X 375 Ruger.

    Necking down and turning the necks of the 375 Ruger takes many steps. Think long and hard before you make your move to get a 7mm X 375 Ruger reamer.

    If the 28 Nosler was in production I would have gone to it instead of the 7mm x 375 Ruger.
