7MM-08 Encore Question, what can I do with this barrel?
I have a 16" 7mm-08 Encore barrel. I haven't shot it too much and I've been able to get around 1moa out of it. The issue is that the throat is too long to get the bullet near the lands. The longest I've tried is the 162gr A-max.
My question, could I ream it to 7mm-08 AI and is that round a any longer? If so, it might shorten the throat enough to let me get nearer the lands.
I don't have the Cartridge length info for the AI, so I didn't know if improving it made it longer or not.
If not, anyone have any ideas?
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
