The next build will be a 7mm of some description for long range hunting. I'm a firm believer when deciding on what to build you start with the projectile / calibre then the cartridge chambered to suit said projectile. So its the 7mm 195 Berger EOL and 175 ELD-X. It will be based on a R700 long action as they have the largest mag box and lots of aftermarket parts. The hard bit is the cartridge. My initial thoughts are 7mm-300 Norma Magnum with a 30 deg shoulder AKA Long Range Hunter by [MENTION=4843]Swamplord[/MENTION]. Brass looks easy but dies i'm not sure about due to a lack of knowledge. View attachment 60198 This should net between 3200-3300 fps from a 26-28" bbl, which translates to a 1500m rifle (1600fps). My question is: Will a RUM or STW or 28 Nosler or 7 LRM / Dakota / 7-375 R, 7mm-338 Lap 7mm-300WSM be easier due to dies and brass availability? I already have a 338 Lap and 264 WM so this is a 'want' not a 'need'. Cheers, F.
