If you're going to do a purpose length 24" 28 Nosler, just scrap that idea, and go 7RM throated for 195 Bergers? Even a 7-300 throated for Bergers?Thanks for sharing your development! it was great to follow the process.
If you wouldn't mind sharing a little on how you had your rifle chambered? did your gun smith us a SAMMI reamer or did you give him a dummy round to follow? I want to have the availability to the shoot 195s but don't know if I need a custom chamber for those?
I'm starting to gather the parts for a custom 28. What was your COAL and did you need a longer magazine? I like the 1:8 twist but how about your barrel length including the break? I would like it to be a 24" barrel then add a break but dont know of thats too short? Im thinking the break will help vs just a straight 24" barrel.
Yes you are correct that the 7RM will also lose velocity in a 24” barrel but likely not as much as the Nosler rounds thrive on ultra slow powders that typically take more barrel to get a complete burn.Won't I loose even more velocity by switching to the 7mm shooting the same 195s then I would by jusy having a 28 nosler In a 24" barrel?
