    28 Nosler / 7 STW Barrel Lengths For Long Range Hunting

    anyone have any first hand experience with these two calibers with a shorter than you probably want barrel? 28" would prolly be ideal for these two calibers. Playing with the idea of a shorter mountain/packing rifle that is lightweight but will still shoot and carry long range ballistics. But, I...

    7-378 Weatherby, Long Range 7mm

    Prolly so. Prolly just go with 7-300 Roy. Already have the brass for 300 Weatherby, and 6.5-300. But can’t go straight to 6.5 from 300. Shoulders crush. Takes 7-300 dies then 6.5-300 dies. I have the dies and the brass. I just wanted something that would be far and away faster than the 7STW or...

    7-378 Weatherby, Long Range 7mm

    G Gotcha. I can attest to the softness of their brass. 6.5-300 loaded hot doesn’t keep primer pockets very well. But it will run 143ELDX 3450-3500. Maybe get two firings out of it.

    7-378 Weatherby, Long Range 7mm

    Seems to be quite a bit of brass out there. I have mostly all the Roys, my favorites being 6.5-300 and 240. I want to stay with Weatherby, just would like to know if anyone has ever chambered it and how they shot if they did.

    7-378 Weatherby, Long Range 7mm

    Anyone have experience with this round? I noticed PT&G has a reamer, but I couldn’t seem to find any dies. I would think a simple neck down of 30-378 would make this a long range killer of whatever you need it to. I would guess push 180 Grain Berger to prolly 3400 FPS or better. If you could get...
