Why not? It might be fun, and you’ll learn something along way. Instead of so many others soap boxing about their idea would be better.....I would like to build a 6.5 wildcat cartidge based on the 7mm WSM case. I plan on necking the 7mm WSM case to 6.5 and then fire forming the case shoulder out to 40 degrees. Has anyone tried this or heard of anyone who has tried it? I have heard of 300 WSM and
270 WSM necked down to 6.5 (basically the same result with either one) but am unable to find anything on wildcatting the 7mm WSM.
Planning on using a Savage 10, 11 or 16 or Rem 700 or Win 70 action. Any thoughts on this cartidge and rifle build?
Thanks for any input .... Nick Novak
I'm STILL waiting for barreled action to get done at smith, been a very long wait. Rich made a statement that ADG is going to be delayed on shipping his head stamped brass, material shortage or something. I have some 6.5 max brass coming as well. Rich says his brass will be different than 6.5 saum brass. When I compared my 7 max brass to adg 7 saum, they were exactly the same, so we'll see what happens.Highdrum,
I'm waiting on my 6.5 Max brass from Rich. Have you developed any loads yet in yours? Would you share load and velocity data? At least a starting point? Can't wait to get mine rolling. How does it feed and what are you using for a mag? Hoping my HS Precision mag works well!
