7mm SAUM Reamers

What reamer is everyone using (especially in a long action)? What throat length? What is the OAL of a 180 Berger VLD seated to the lands?

I am thinking that a round loaded to 3.055" looks about right. There would be .285" of bearing surface in the neck. How much freebore would I need with a 1.5 degree lead?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Dan

Assemble a couple of 'dumby' rounds. Send them to your reamer maker. Then you'll know for sure!

Re: 7mm SAUM Reamers

If you're willing to take "what others are using" especially off the web, ??????? When I'm doin' a "special", and as of late I'm doin' alot of 'um, I darn sure won't be using 'hear-say' for my reamer specks.
