Thanks for all the info Fifty. I figured the 7MM AM would be to big for those bullets, however, I thought I would see what you thought. Can you build a 270 AM on my BAT 8.5" action? it's currently on my 6.5x284. I am really not worried about barrel life with this project, I want something that will shoot the bigger 100+grn varmint bullets to around 3700 fps to 3900 fps. I am currently waiting on parts for my 6-284 project, this rifle is going to be built around shooting 75 to 90 grn pills. I will get between 3700 fps and 3800fps with the 87grn V-Max and 3850 to 3950 with the 75grn V-max. I also have a 220 Swift and a 223, so when I go varmint hunting, I have plenty of different rifles to shoot, so I never really put to many rounds through the same rifle. I want a large magnum caliber varmint rig built and that's why I am interested in one of your Allen Mags. If you have other suggestions, please let me know. I am open to other suggestions. Does anyone else, reading this post, shoot the 270 AM. Please, let know what you guys think about my next project. Fifty, I mentioned I was probably going to build this rifle on a McMillan MBR stock, however, this is what I am thinking about in terms of specs;
1. One of your Allen Mags, possibly the 270 Allen Mag
2. BAT 8.5" action
3. Krieger 30" 1.250 straight tapper, 1-10 Twist
4. Muzzle Brake
5. McMillan A-5 stock with lead added to rear for weight and balance.
6. Jewell 2oz Trigger
7. Davidson Base with 20MOA added
8. Topped with Nightforce 5.5x22x56mm NXS
9. Estimated weight of rifle, 20 to 25 pounds (My Guess)
Let me know what you think. Thanks Kirby for your response.
