Iv'e done a search for this, but couldn't find what I wanted to know - sorry if it's been covered before! (GG) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Iv'e been following Kirby's progress with the 7mm AM with interest and really fancy a 7mm Magnum to add to my collection - maybe not quite at the edge as Kirby's cartridge but somewhere near. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
My question is this; if I commissioned a 7mm RUM or SAUM, would there be any benefit in speccing a tight necked chamber reamer or would I be wasting my time?
The basic rifle spec is something like this at present: Hansen action, Border 5R barrel, Macmillan A5 stock - (yes Pete, your'e doing it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]) I intend to use 160 - 200 grain, match bullets or accubonds.
Most of my rifles have tight necks and I percieve there to be accuracy gains to be made here over the standard sloppy neck sizes - I've no past experience of Magnum cartriges and wonder if the same principle applies?
Most of the time the rifle would be used for range work, informal competition to 1000 yds and open hill stalking so I really want to extract "best" accuracy from my chosen cartridge.
As an aside, are there any muzzle brakes
available, that offer similar performance to Holland but are cleaner looking? (slimmer design)
Thanks in advance,
