Hey gang, I'm looking to build a 7mm of some flavor to shoot the 180 class bullets. I was originally thinking 7mm-300win mag, but I think that's going to cost more than what I can really afford at this point of my life. I'm looking to see what you guys are getting with your 7mm rem mags and the 180 class projectiles. This rifle will have a 28in tube without the brake. I'm hoping for 3000 fps. Is that unrealistic? I'd plan on running along the lines of rl-26, h1000, retumbo, etc. I feel 3000 is reasonable since I run 162s out of my 26in at 3125 fps. I have the dies and enough brass at my disposal to last the barrels life.
