    With all the latest medium length actions becoming popular and T3 Tikkas making great intermediate builds, what would you guys think of an EFFICIENT 3.1" round that would run a 180 near 3100' out of a 26" barrel and a 195 near 3000'.

    Like an A.I. In fact you could use factory ammo in your chamber. It would have wsm, or better, performance with a lot better brass.

    How would that compare to the 7mm Blaser case?

    So closer to 7wsm than the saum, but better case design and longer neck than 7wsm? So kinda a 7saum/wsm/ss hybrid?

    That pretty well sums it up!:D
    I'M debating whether or not to do it with the SS performing so we'll in the short action but with the medium action, I know there is more performance to be gained!

    ---- it!
    Why didn't you do this last year before I built my 7-300 WSM :(
    Tikka's make awesome build platforms, especially with companies like McGowen making "Tikkage" prefits
