Looking for a new round...

Is there anything out there that has a .532 case head, can be loaded to 3.58'' or less, and can give 1,000 ft lbs @ 1,800 fps @ 1,500 yards? I'm not asking for much am I?...

    Yeah, I've been researching it for about a week now and haven't come up with anything. Just thought I'd check, to make sure I wasn't missing something. The closest I came was a long shot (no pun intended) 375 Ruger necked down to 7mm, with a 180gr Berger. That was all just speculation tho'. I think I could get a 7mm Wby out to about 1,200 yards. Maybe.

    You'll need a 7mm wby match chamber (short throat) I doubt you'd have much luck with .360" freebore and 180 bergers!

    What about ( and this would be a lot of money, work and short case life) a 7mm/375 ruger ackley improved with the 180 gr bergers or heaviest matrix ( I think its a 190 or something gr) bullet? In a hot load should send the 180's to 3300fps. Man that would cost a lot for a reamer, custom dies and all! Try it and let us know!
