    It's a terrible name for starters I'd say a standard Blaser mag would do 3k without having to form cases?

    I suggest staying away from a wizard mate.
    7mm blaser is a neat calibre

    It does sound like a cool cal I have seen a few improved versions but wonder if the extra hassle would be worth the potential gain

    What powder and grains please?

    7mm blaser magnum holds 80.0gn H20

    7mm Remington magnum holds 85gn H20

    How many 24" 7mm R.E.M. Mags can do 3000 with 180eldm's?

    What pressures are you getting to achieve that?

    There is an easy way to find out, do what I did.

    Buy a reamer, dies, brass, barrel & donor rifle, get it all put together, then try a whole lot of different powders & projectiles in it.

    I would have thought an easy way would be ask the guys that are running one unless it's some kind secret?

    Eg cam how do you find your Saum and how does it go with what length barrel? Me good mate 22 inch tube 168 bergers and 66 Gn 2217 and 2930 fps in my barrel throated to suit


    Not asking for any trade secrets just an actual interest in this 7 Blaser and wanted to know a bit more about them
