Re: Guys lets talk. POWER POWER POWER in the short action rifle
Well if your looking for any random idea, put this to thought, with Matrix making a .277" cal 165 vld with a claimed J4 jacket that would make its design practically identical to a Berger hunting vld and matrix claims a .650 G1 bc, with that put in a 7mm wsm necked down, 40* improved case and a stiff charge of H1000 or similar should get 3200+ fps from a 26-28" barrel and could be loaded to 2.995" oal. Its bc is right there with a 7mm 180 berger and has less drag. Run the numbers with that and you may be shocked, they are easily getting 3150fps in 26" barreled 270wbys and the 7mm wsm has about a 1.5grn powder capacity over the 270wby in its standard 35* configuration. Then again if you are like me and do not like the 27 cals then id consider the same configuration in 6.5mm, but it would not be barrel friendly.
