I built a 18 inch 7mm SAUM with a titanium suppressor, best gun I ever had running 162 grain bullets and RL26 using a magnum primer for the short barrel and a titanium suppressor. Keep in mind that you will NOT like shooting it without a suppressor.....they are loud!!lol
What velocities are you getting?

With RL26 was pushing around 2900 with the 162. Norma brass. My 22 inch barrel it was another 100fps faster.

I have got to ask this. IF you are shooting a supersonic round why are you using a suppressor? Hearing protection I sort of understand but as for the rest I don't get it.

I hunt subsonic and use a suppressor so understand I'm not opposed to suppression while hunting.

Looking for some learning here.
Hearing protection for you and your spotter is the main reason.

Got my 16.5” 6.5 saum in the mail today! Here’s a comparison next to my 26” (+ brake) 300 Norma. Can’t wait to shoot this bad lil b1tch unfortunately gotta wait to start load development until next weekend (waiting on scope and dies) already lovin how short and handy it feels. Fingers crossed it throws up good numbers and shoots straight
