Re: Seating out heavy monolithic bullets in 7mm-08

Rest assured TTSX's will do the deed.

In fact, the 150's may well be fine in the OP's rifle notwithstanding limiting velocity due to the case capacity issue.

My point is simply that making the throat longer to fit this bullet may end up being a home run or strike out. But, the OP indicated he's willing to rechamber if it doesn't pan out.

Re: Seating out heavy monolithic bullets in 7mm-08

My interest is,.. has short action magazine and 2.80" limit hamstringed the heavier long bullets in the 7mm-08 by reduction in powder charges? But then barrel length may have more to do with it, in my Sierra Manual a, 26" 7mm-08 shows 2700 fps with 150 gr. with 44.2 grains of 4350 and the .280 Rem with 22" barrel, same bullet, needs 51.3 grs. 4350 to get 2700.... Or put all the variables of two different rifles in a bag and shake them up......? Soon as I get some clean .308 brass sized just enough to loosely hold 7mm bullet, I'll have to see about how much powder will go behind a seated out bullet, without compressing it...Right Now new Rifle has to go back to factory.. deep reaming cuts in both lands and grooves are more then anyone should accept from Savage..

Re: Seating out heavy monolithic bullets in 7mm-08

Of interest is the slight difference in lengths of some bullets below the 139 gr. SST, 154 gr.SST and 150 gr. TSX:

And the fact the 150 gr. TSX seated to just have boat tail in case body, will still work in short Axis magazine, and that bullet seated out, well, looks really nasty......However just found out about 11.5:1 twist,,why, why me!!!
