    My wildcat 7x64IX is very similiar to the .280Ackley.

    The gain in case capacity over the original 7x64 is about 7%
    Original 7x64: 69gr water
    Wildcat 7x64IX: 73,6 to 74gr water

    Max chamber pressure is 4400 bar (Original 7x64 --> 4150bar)

    Reamers and Dies: Triebel / Germany - Home: Triebel Waffenwerkzeuge - Lagerreibahlen, Prüflehren, Wiederladematritzen, Sonderfräsern für Waffenhersteller Beschussämter Büchsenmacher

    Muzzle-velocity of the 150gr BalTip load is about 955 to 970m/s (about 3150fps)

    It seem that the 7x64 is very European. We don't see much of that on this side of the pond.

    Your 7x64IX is similar to my 7 saum from Remington at 74 grains.

    Like your reamer website. Sehr goot! :D
