    In all honesty a 7mm08 tikka reamed to 284 launching 162s would be a pretty damn perfect all-rounder.

    Very true, don't forget you can get Magnum performance if required by reaming the same rifle to 7mmsaum giving you 3000+ fps with the 162g Amaxs/ELD-x

    What length barrel would you need to achieve that?

    Magnum is only a label, and most people relate it to cases with belts on them and buckets of powder in them. In truth, the 7mm & 300 saum are really a 284 on steroids. Good, healthy steroids.

    Maybe so but it says magnum on the case, don't see the words steroids or 284 on them

    I was only being a smart arse anyway, you can be the winner
