The problem with this cartridge and any other based off of a SAUM is the lack of brass. I've been looking for 7mm SAUM brass for 6 months to justify a 6.5 SAUM build and have had zero luck finding it. I have occasionally found 300 SAUM Norma brass but the jerks selling it are asking $3/piece! I did find 5 boxes of 300 SAUM ammo at almost $60 box. Again, $3/piece.
Unless SAUM brass becomes easier to find, I'll stick to a cartridge based off of available brass. No sense having a purdy rifle that you can't shoot.
