Just a little teaser

For all you 270 lovers.

UPS brought me this yesterday.

The case on the left is a WSM and the one on the right is a Rum. The one in the middle will be a 270 Montana

    Correct, the RUM is the case on the right. The case in the middle will be the Montana parent case.

    I like it! But I'd like it better were it a .284 bore... You can call it the ".284 Bama", after your old buddy here... LOL

    That should be your next one Mark.

    The 300 Dakota has a little more capacity than the 7 Dakota. Some have done the 7/300 Dakota. It would be equal to or maybe slightly larger than the 7 STW.

    My idea for the 7 is a Lapua case. Same as a 7 RUM but better brass and a shorter case. This is only if nitriding proves good for extending barrel life. I'll be finding that out soon.... in the next few months.
