Howdy folks. So I'm getting my new house in the next month and tooling up with a new lathe, mill, reamers etc etc. Soooo... I can't help myself... Sure, I could go out and buy a 7 RUM or 6.5-300 WBY, but if we didn't re-invent the wheel we'd still be rolling around on stone blocks. I noticed that PTG now has 6.5 and 7mm-300PRC and 6.5-300PRC AI reamer available. Question is, would anyone actually want to use this, and, what kind of velocities do we think this could achieve. Any better than the above, don't know, any better performance than the big 6.5... probably unlikely. I'm thinking a twist of 1:9 because I do favour lighter, faster bullets. The 7mm looks setup for 180's though, I'd want to punch 120's to 140's maximum. There are a number of considerations here, including brass availability etc. Basically I like hot-rods, and setting my barrel back doesn't bother me. For the amount of deer I shoot a barrel lasts me a long time, I have other work-horses around that do a great job ruining my savings account chewing powder. I guess there will be a lot of opinions an SAUM's, WSM's, and 7mm rounds, but I'm kinda looking for ridiculous performance out of a 6.5 or 7mm. I guess the question is, is it worth it to be unique, or stick with current offerings in magnum or WSM actions... I'm also thinking of future value of the reamer/chambers. What would most people probably go for.... sorry if this is vague. Just putting the feelers out there to the universe really. I like the 6.5Sherman, but there just isn't enough support here for it in Australia.
