What is the true 7mm cartridge? I shoot a .270 (actually 277 as we all know) and if you do the math conversion it comes to 7.03580mm and this in my mind is the true 7mm! The 270 is under rated by many but is one of the most popular calibers world wide and is often put down against a 7mm - it IS a 7mm! I cannot wait for berger to release a VLD in 277 - I watched their DVD again last night and cannot wait for the hunting season to start. I will take my "7mm" to the plains this winter and will not stand back for anything. What prompted this posting? A deep discussion at the bar! The debate rages on!
