Re: Berger issues??
I would trade accuracy for the ability to reload faster any day. I built my 7 SAUM on a single shot Surgeon action and I don't regret it at all. Last year my wife and I killed 3 mule deer, over 400 yds, in about 30 seconds with the same rifle. IMO if you miss with the 1st shot, you will miss with the second, unless you make a sight adjustment and that takes some time anyway. I would seat the bullets where the gun likes them, not the magazine.
