    What barrel

    My comment was based on my gunsmiths recommendation when I wanted to install a long barrel on my 700. I have a 28” Remington varmint barrel contour on mine and works fine. But a heavy varmint contour at 30”, you can do but you should bed the first couple of inches by the recoil lug. It will work...

    Comfortable shooting magnum caliber

    I own two 6.5 Rem Mags, same case as the 350 Rem Mag. Ones a model 7 that is set up for my wife to hunt with. I down load it at 51gr IMR4350 and the 125 partition, deadly on deer. It’s a #2 Shilen barrel at 23”. My other is on a Tikka with a 26” #4 Brux, I’ve shot it out to 1050 yards but I’d...

    Are you interested in a Winchester 94 AE 356 Win? I have nearly 100 pieces of unfired brass, dies bullets to add also and some cash

    What barrel

    that is too much of a barrel to hang on a Remington 700, unless you bed part of it or use a barrel block.

    Help: Is this a carbon ring?

    I took a snap shot of your pics, this is definitely a carbon ring and a pretty bad one

    Is this brass safe to reload???

    Using subpar brass will give you subpar results, trash it and buy some decent brass, and I don’t mean Hornady

    Where to start 35 SAUM

    And it will work in your model 7, as I have one from the factory

    Where to start 35 SAUM

    It just might be easier to go with the 350 mag, should feed fine if you replace the feed ramp

    7MM Rem Mag vs 6.5PRC in a 22" barrel

    Oh yeah, I also have the 6.5 Rem Mag on a Tikka running 140 VLD’s at 3030 26” barrel. My barrel is a #4 Brux and did well out to 700 yards but the thin barrel made it a bit touchy at longer ranges. Though I did connect at 1050 yards, just not as consistent. Funny you mentioned the 284/350...

    7MM Rem Mag vs 6.5PRC in a 22" barrel

    I have a similar cartridge to the 6.5 PRC, it’s a 6.5 Rem Mag. I had it built on a model 7 with a 23” barrel. If you’re going short, reload with faster powders. I use IMR4350, nice mild load but deadly on WT with the 125 partition at over 3000fps.

    Where to start 35 SAUM

    I rebarreled my 350 RM with a Shilen barrel and had a brake cut into it, I was able to install on a LA just for grins and giggles shooting the 225 Nosler bonded bullet and was able to hit 2800fps. Nasty load

    Where to start 35 SAUM

    I have a model 7 that was originally a 350 Rem Mag, start with those powder loads and work up. He 225 partition will be a thumper. Hope you’re doing a brake. For longer ranges the 225 Sierra shoots well, top velocity is with 748. I’ve used 322 and Varget. Here’s a target at 100 yards with two...
