Rumor has it that the 7mm Allen Mag is based on the .338 Lapua Magnum case, which would mean a relatively easy conversion from the Firebird. That ought to give me the benefits of the Firebird, but with infinitely better brass...

Hmm, this might be the path...

Time for an email to Kirby...

I might be mistaken but I thought Kirby based them on the 338 RUM, drop him a line to be sure. Recoil with the brake was a nonissue. It is quite a pleasant rifle to shoot.

The 257 and 6.5mm AMs are based on the 338 RUM case. The 270 AM is on the 7mm RUM but with the 7mm Allen Mag I did depart from the RUM case in an effort to get stronger, better quality brass. It is based on the Lapua.

This is a virgin 7mm-338 Lapua flanked by two formed 7mm Allen Magnum rounds.
