Re: Remington 7 actions

Why would the 6.5-284 have to be single loaded in a M#7? I have a M#673 chambered for the 6.5 Rem Mag and it feeds fine from the magazine. Is it because of the rebated rim?

They are not wildcats, but a .260 Rem or a 7mm Rem SAUM would be good candidates. The 7 SAUM would require a bolt with a .535" face and might be difficult to modify to feed. A 6.5 x .284 is a fine long range cartridge, but in the M7 would have to be single loaded, and an unfired round would almost certainly have to be ejected by pulling the bolt and round out the back of the receiver. On the plus side, the .260 Rem and the 6.5 x .284 would work with your .308 bolt, and the .260 would also feed without any modifications. Feeding wouldn't be an issue with the 6.5 x .284 because it could only be single loaded anyway.

I don't know the F-class rules, but if a round doesn't have to feed out of the magazine, the 6.5 x .284 would be my choice for a long range rifle in a short action.

Just my opinion, Tom

the cartridge overall length ( COAL ) would be too long to feed out of the magazine , and to long to eject a unfired round from the chamber . that's why you would need to pull the bolt and let the cartridge come straight out through . Jim
