Trying to run some Quickload numbers for reference. Does anybody have any real world numbers for 7wsm Winchester brass case capacity? Using 83gr H2O, Im showing to be able to push the Berger 195 around 2994fps using N570.

The Saum shoots great and has god brass options (ADG) Easy choice. Any time I consider a new cartridge, quality brass options are my first consideration.

I just got my Saum build back from rbros. First day at the range today. With 61.5g of rl26 I had velocities at 2969 with Berger 180s and no pressure signs. COAL is well under 3” in a standard short action. I think the 7 Saum is a pretty difficult round to beat.

Nice, what’s your barrel length?

Awesome. Thanks. If I can get 2950 in my savage I’ll be pumped. Should be able to load just shy of that length.

Tired of waiting for my barrel.
I got 3100 with RL 26 but my extreme spread was in the mid 20s. I lost about 80 FPS going to RL 23 but my ES is single digits now.

Here’s you fellas a 949 yard impact with a 180 ELDm started at 3020FPS

I'm shooting 180 Bergers from my Saum and it shoots lights out.

The SAUM case has under utilized since it's beginning....it is a great design and more accurate than given credit for...put some good old H-4350 in it and you'll be in the money in a hurry. Like everything else Big Green really let their own design down...great casing design...
