Gonna be once my wife's rifle is finished, 7.5 twist, 20"ish tube. I'll try the 150's or 160's, and maybe the 170 Cayuga as well.
That will be a great little rifle. With a 7.5 wont that be a little fast for such light bullets? If I had more rl26 I would be running the 177 hammers and 180+ from cutting edge.

With the long monos the tighter twist is good, the 160 SBDII actually states they need a 7 twist, but I'm hoping my 6500+ ft elevation will help me out

Anyone run the 7 max with Magpul AICS mags? I have an AI 338 mag that works great but I want to try the Magpul to get less rattle.

Straight jacket armory does great work. I prefer preferredbarrelblanks. I am running a arc neuclus action so I just had preferred turn me a shouldered 7 max barrel and I spun it on.
Short action nucleus? I have one and am considering a 7 max, just wondering what mag box I need and if any mods to the action would be needed.

Depending on the bullets you use, it needs a medium or long action, seated out near the lands I think the are in the 3.1"-3.3" length depending on the bullet. If you have a standard remington, they can be opened up for Wyatts new box, it allows right around 3.310", but generally won't work on clones. Also, if your using shorter bullets you should be fine as well.
