Re: So Guys, What Seven?

Check out the 7-300 Win Mag. I have one, and it will shoot the 180 bergers right around 3175fps. This was using H-1000.

Here is a cool article by KiwiNate, a fella on these forums. His is a 7mm-300 Win Mag, with a little different shoulder angle. Read about it, its a good article. He talks about his 7RUM and compares it to the 7mm-300 Win Mag.
The 7mm Practical. A Practical Magnum.

Its also easy to wildcat. You dont need any special dies or anything.

To be realistic, and in my opinion, if your goal is to fire 180 grain loads why be insistent an the 7mm. It sounds like you already have a better than average 7mm and your goals seem to be custom based. Depending on the game your hunting a 700 yard shot is a dream. From experience a .308 round is much more enjoyable to dial in simply due to its versatility. (110 grains to 225)
My 300 with 150's, 180's, or 200's is like greased sh-----!

I kinda agree. Since you already have a 7mag, why not go bigger? 300RUM, 338Edge?? Then you can shoot 210/225 and 300 grain bullets respectively.

300RUM pushing the 208Amax at 3150...deer killer to 1400 yards.

338Edge running the 300SMK at 2850...deer killer to 1800.

Awesome.

AZShooter, I think that you have me confused with Freebird63. I would agree with your statement and always thought the RUM to be atop the STW in velocity.

Re: So Guys, What Seven?

Or better yet go with the 7.21 Lazz Firebird, its still pushing a 140gr bullet at 500 yards to the tune of 2718 fps. Or the 7MM Dakota is another good one.
Or go buy a trashed 300RUM and send it to Kirby and have him rechamber it to a 338 edge.

Re: So Guys, What Seven?

i have a 7 rem mag, and also a 7x300 weatherby.
the 7x300 is simply a 300 weatherby necked down.
its about identicle to the 7 stw as to performance.
it has a several hundred yard advantage over a 7 rem.
sort of like owning a 16 oz hammer and a 20 oz hammer.
my suggestion would also be to get a hammer.
think 30 caliber.
