    7x64 is ballistic twin of 280. In my 280AI 61gn is good with 162gn ELDM, so start at 57-58gn?

    I wonder if the internal capacity is a fair bit less than 280 as I struggle to get much more than 59.0 in and seat the projectile, definitely canít seat the projectile in to where Iíd like too, in Norma brass.

    If the case is full it will drive the pressure up so you may do yjust as well as a case with slightly more room.

    QL: 280 Rem=67.9gn, 7x64=69gn and 280AI 74gn H2O.

    Nothing in it between the first two and different brass manufacturers will vary that much. What brand brass you using, RWS?
