Well according to matrix there .277" cal 165grn vld has a BC of .738, so the combo I posted of the 270x7mm wsm improved will have 3870ftlbs of energy at the muzzle with 1544 remaining at 1000yrds and will stay transonic to 2000yrds with 503ftlbs remaining.

I just read the whole thread over, as it was more than a year old. I guess what I was looking at when I first started the thread was a SA round that would operate as a repeter. I chose the WSM bolt face as thats what I had, however I would not be apposed to thinking outside the box. Like using a .585 bolt face and basing the round off of a 338 lapua or 470 nitro something like that, again just throwing out ideas.
How about the 7mm Fatso?......Rich

Then there are the Carteruccios and maybe some new Wildcat bullets.
Not sure how long you can nurse the barrel along, but it would be a flat shooting cartridge with lots of energy.
remembering what Ackley had to say about the 6.5 Rem mag, I got a big smile

Lets set a guideline. the rifle will operate as a repeter just for the reason of keeping the topic on SA length rounds.
well just a thought, and probably not a long range round as well, but with enough power to work on 98% of the stuff encountered in N. America; look no further than a .458 American. I think there's also a 2 inch .375 version of this round, and a .338 or .358 is quite doable
