    Why limit yourself to a 1:9 twist? Go with a 8 twist and you can shoot the biggest of the 7mm bullets if you wanted. No sense in holding back the performance of the big 7. I'll also throw out the possibility of a remage build if you didnt want to spend the money one having a smith do the work. That's the route I'm doing.

    It looks cool and saves an ounce. I'm getting the feeling that this isn't a lightweight build though. Which in this case I'd say that its probably not worth the cost.
