    So, i was thinking, everyone seems to praise the 6mm BR. And the 30 BR, but for some reason, the 7mm BR died a quick death. I made up some predicted velocities (just added 100 fps to what the pistol guys got with theirs) and inputed data for a 168 grain SMK into JBM ballistics. It does very well. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I think it would make a great low recoil gun out to 1000 yards.

    Just thinking :)
