    Big 7m or 300 Mag

    I know there are a few 7mm and 300 mags up for sale on here, but any other 7mm or 300 with maximum 1:9 twist and ideally 1:8 twist barrel that is worth considering or anything that someone is thinking of moving on? Would prefer a setup more geared towards target shooting and ideally something like a 7mm Blaser, 7-300/270wsm, 7m SAUM, 300 Norma, 300 PRC or similar. Not a big fan of the belted mags.

    Sorry, should read Big 7mm or 300 Mag...

    I hope you are thinking of flinging very very heavy projectiles with that 1:8 twist. But really just wondering WHY???

    Oh and I hope you enjoy a fairly good positive push from said mechanics going in the other direction if firing it from a light platform.

    I have a very standard garden variety 300 Win Mag. That I've pushed up to 230 gn projectiles before (thanks @Rich007). Then my brain took over from my crotch and I dropped back to shooting 175 Berger VLD's and 208 VLD-m's (much more civil...) and massively accurate...

    So I'll go back to my first - WHY???
    I'm drawn to the mountains and streams, its where life is clear, where the world makes most sense!

    @Gkp if you don’t sell that package I have a buyer very keen on 180 ELD-M and Rel 26 so I can make more of the recipe for his RM.
