    7bc-shot-group.jpg 7bc-warrior-600x600.jpg 180 Berger at 3160 feet persecond
    after months of testing and 7 rifles built now we have gotten the 7BC running like a champ
    its a 300wm necked to a 7mm with no fire forming and new factory ammo coming out, best part is 28 Nosler performance and a fraction of the cost
    Peterson is making our brass and Blackwater precision is making our Ammo
    Here at Barbourcreek we changed freebore and throat angel for optimum performance

    here was a group I shot at 1000 yards

    great question, have not tried them we really like the performance of the 180, had a few pass through s in S-Africa with 195s for the 28 Nos, so really had no interest in running them in the 7 BC

    So, it's basically it's just a standardized version of the 7mm-300WM wildcat that has been around for decades...Just with a fancy new name and SAAMI approval? :confused:

    300 win die, 7mm insert takes 2 seconds to make the brass and I designed the ream and will release it to the anyone who wants it

    What’s the COAL of a loaded round? Work with an unmodified Remington? Need a Wyatt’s extended mag box?

    I always support companies that support Vets and 2A groups. Hell, if I had the money, I'd snatch the brand new 26" 5R .300WM barrel (and save it for a different project) off my new/unfired 700 5R Milspec and build one, as I'm not a fan of .300WM, as I have .30 calibers all around it, and above it. But money-constraints as of late, have been more critical and dire than before.
