Re: New 7mm Wildcat....7mm Rogue

It looks like they cut the capacity way back to lengthen the neck. It would be interesting to know the water capacity compared to a 7-300wm and the Rogue. I bet it's still higher but not near what a standard 7-375 Ruger would be.

Re: New 7mm Wildcat....7mm Rogue

My 30/375 S.I. holds 96.4 grains H20. It has a much longer neck than the ruger would have but still holds about the same capacity as a 30/375 std. would be. I blew the taper out of the case and changed the shoulder to 40 degrees to accomplish this. It still has a .320" neck. I checked with the guys at Gunwerks when I was building mine to see if they would sell brass and they said ONLY to customers who bought their rifles.
By the way, I think both the Rogue and the LRM should be great performers. I can push the 215 hybrids to near 3100'. Here is a pic of the 30/375 S.I. loaded with a 218 SXR next to the parent 375 Ruger.....Rich

Rich,

If you look at where your body to shoulder junction is compared to the parent case it looks to be quite a bit longer than the 7lrm next to the 375 Ruger. I would bet the capacity of the 7lrm is close to a 7-300wm. Probably slightly higher but only a couple grains.

I think the 7-300wm capacity is about optimal for a 7mm kind of like my 30-8mm and your 30-375 SI are for .30cal's.

Nathan

I would be happy to post any info on the case that you guys want to know so just ask and I will do my best.

On the water capacity can someone chime in with where the water level needs to be when you weight it? is it to the top of the neck or at the base of the neck?

I was a little disappointed when I saw the comparison myself but they say it does well and I guess we will just have to see. one thing you gotta admit is that that neck is super long. The case has all the makings of a good long range case...kinda like a 6.5x47L on steroids. almost like a middle brother to the 6.5x47L and a 338 Norma mag.

Re: New 7mm Wildcat....7mm Rogue

since I was wanting to compare richs 30/375 SI with the 7mm LRM I did some computer wizardry to see. here is the pic I got from cropping my photo with Richs and matching the relative size of the 375 ruger case in my photo to his. Not perfect but pretty close.

Left to Right:
375 ruger
30/375 SI
7mm LRM
