My wildcat 7x64IX is very similiar to the .280Ackley.

The gain in case capacity over the original 7x64 is about 7%
Original 7x64: 69gr water
Wildcat 7x64IX: 73,6 to 74gr water

Max chamber pressure is 4400 bar (Original 7x64 --> 4150bar)

Reamers and Dies: Triebel / Germany - Home: Triebel Waffenwerkzeuge - Lagerreibahlen, Prüflehren, Wiederladematritzen, Sonderfräsern für Waffenhersteller Beschussämter Büchsenmacher

Muzzle-velocity of the 150gr BalTip load is about 955 to 970m/s (about 3150fps)

It seem that the 7x64 is very European. We don't see much of that on this side of the pond.

Your 7x64IX is similar to my 7 saum from Remington at 74 grains.

Like your reamer website. Sehr goot!
