Re: Where can I get a 7 lrm reamer

The Dakota will fit in a stnd mag bolt face. How much are the dies and brass for an LRM?

Dakota Rim diameter is larger than standard magnum cartridges like the 375 Ruger .545" vs .532".

7mmDakota


375 Ruger

I have here in front of me 300 Daokat brass. It fits in these bolt faces, 7 RM M77, 300 WSM Sako M85, 300 RUM R700. There is enough play in the bolt face to accomadate the Dakota, also the actual measured rim diameter (vs spec) is about .542

The Howa/Vangurd bolt faces in 7 RM and 300 WBY are to tight. It would be very easy to open them up.

$1.32 a piece for brass and $100 for dies.

300 Dakota also fits in my Wby Mark V. Brass from Dakota cost $1.80 and RCBS dies I believe were about $130 or maybe $150.

When you spend thousands for a new rifle, the "expensive" Dakota brass is only a few cents more per round...Now I don't know the relative quality of the two yet.

Yes the price was not that big of a deal, but Possibly having to open the bolt face plus the extra cost when I could do the same thing easier and cheaper was what made the decision for me.
