Re: Obermeyer barrel w/ Berger bullet?
That was my initial thought too. At the same time though, this is Boots Obermeyer right? The guy that brought the design to the US market, from what I understand anyway. Kreiger advertises their 5R as being "Obermeyer approved" but they, as well as Bartlein I believe, dont have the tighter bore. Sounds like Obermeyer runs a nominal groove diameter of .284 or larger for the 7mm but he doesn't really specify. My thought would be that it would deform the rifling a little more but then again you don't have the sharp edge of the conventional rifling. Anybody have an Obermeyer that can chime in?
