the 300 wsm and 7mm wsm do not have the same case dimensions. You will have to fire form the 7wsm if you neck the 300 wsm brass down. it will blow the shoulder forward and shorten the neck.

WildCat..
You might want to look towards the 1-9 twist for your project especially if your going to go with the high B.C VLD bullets such as the the A-Max 162,Berger 168,180 or the Cauterucio VLD.
I'm having a 7mm WSM built on a Rem700 long action right now, I went with the long action so I can shoot the heavier VLD's in a repeater.All the guy's I know who have built long range 7mm WSM's have gone with a 1-9 several are shooting Mike Rock barrels. I'm running a 30" Shilen heavy palma and my good friend is shooting a Obermyer heavy palma contour all in a 9 twist.

Mine is on a Model 700 long action.
Trued
Bolt fluted
Badger Ord bolt knob
8/40 base screws
Badger Ord pinned recoil lug

Shilen 1-9 SS select/match 30" heavy palma
Vais Arms brake threaded 5/8-24 to fit a suppressor
Chambered in 7mm WSM with the lead diameter 1 thou over groove for the 180gr Cauterucio VLD's they have a B.C, of .875!!!!!! when pushed just over 3100fps....Incredible.....

Re: Good-News!!!-(New-Rifle-Project)

Who's going to build this new rig??

Kirby has a 7mm-270WSM reamer that is made for using the Norma 270WSM brass necked up to 7mm. No other forming needed. I have this chambering in a XP-100 and it shoots GREAT. I'm running 162gr A-Max's at 2825fps (I know...slow...but it's a handgun with a 17" barrel). The tube is a 1-9" Lilja. When test shooting...Kirby got it to stabilize the HEAVY 200gr WC bullets.

If you are building a dedicated 7mm LR rifle, I am unsure as to why you would want to mess with wasting (meant nicely) barrel life on light 120/140gr offerings?

Really? is that what Bob told you, the 176's had a BC of .75 and the 180's are made in the same die. Or is this your shot BC to match your charts?

Re: Good-News!!!-(New-Rifle-Project)

screech:
No Bob does not have a site,he is old school. You can call and if he does not answer just leave a message and he gets back to you fairly quick....

Bob Cauterucio
482 Comerwood Court
S. San Francisco,CA 94080

650-583-1550

Be prepared to pay more for these bullets,everyone is hand made.He pulls the handle himself on every one...The heavier 168 & 180 7mm VLD"S will run you about $51.00 bucks per 100 bullets(box)....
