Re: pet loads for 7mm rem mag

It started out with a pretty long throat from the factory. Near the end of the barrels life I was running it out to 3.4495" according to my records. I'm thinking that was before I had my Stoney Point OAL guage. In comparison, the 700P's OAL for the same bullet/cartridge is 2.6735"...JohnnyK.

yep, that's pretty close to what I've been coming up with as well. I measured mine at 3.383". so I must be close. My oal with scirocco is 3.372" that's the max I can stretch it and still be able to eject an unfired cartrige. Do you think i'm close enough to the lands at that length? I'm really thinking that the copper fouling is the problem now due to the scirocco's jacket. I'll find out Monday when i'm able to shoot again.

johnny-correction to the last post...the 3.372" was the length that stuck in the chamber. 3.363" was the max for ejection.

Re: pet loads for 7mm rem mag

Not sure what your rifle would/will like as far as OAL goes. Each rifle's chamber is a bit different. When getting this measurement I usually take about 4-5 readings and see if any repeats. Its kinda hard sometimes to get an exact measurement, you just gotta play with it and give yourself a good feeling about it. I have to monitor my pressure at which I push the bullet to the lands.

Re: pet loads for 7mm rem mag

I just loaded for my cousin's original version Sendero. Straight out the Nosler manual. 68grs IMR 7828, Fed GM215m primers, Win brass, .010 off the lands, MV 3125 by drop chart! 1 3/4 inch @500 yds. Only load 8 rounds. The first 4 shot 1/4" @100 and the next 4 at 500yds. I wish I could have gotten that lucky with my own rifle!! Good luck.
