    Paulmoney,

    What would you like to know about the Allen Magnums? There are getting to be a pretty good herd of them so if there are any in particular you are interested let me know and I can give you the skinny on them. Here is a list of the current Allen Magnums and Allen Xpress rounds. There are several soon to be released as well so I will mark those that are currently proven and available for chambering and which are in testing still:

    224 Allen Magnum.......In testing
    257 Allen Xpress
    6.5mm Allen Xpress
    270 Allen Xpress
    257 Allen Magnum
    6.5mm Allen Magnum
    270 Allen Magnum
    277 Allen Magnum
    7mm Allen Magnum
    300 Allen Xpress.......In testing
    300 Allen Magnum.......In testing
    338 Allen Magnum
    375 Allen Magnum
    458 Allen Magnum.......In testing
    50 Allen Tactical......In testing
    510 Allen Magnum

    Let me know which you would be interested in. Also, as correctly mentioned already, if you search under Allen Magnum, APS or similiar titles you should get alot of reading on here. I am pretty windy when I type and there are getting to be alot of guys using the Allen Magnums so they have posted good data and stories as well.

    Thanks for the interest.

    The 270 Allen Xpress is based on the 300 Dakota with its 2.550" case length.

    The 270 Allen Magnum is based on either the 7mm RUM or 300 RUM and has a case length of 2.850". Other then that they are basically the same, the AM just has a longer body section for larger case capacity.

    The 270 Allen Xpress will slightly exceed what the 270 or 7mm STW will produce with same bullet weights and same barrel lengths.

    The 270 Allen Magnum will get you another 150 to 200 fps over that depending on bullet length and barrel length.
