    7-375R / 7mm Fatso or the 7-300 Win mag??

    I am thinking of having another 7mm done since the beginning of the year owning a semi custom 280 ackley running 162 A-maxs.
    The calibers i am thinking of are the 7-375R / 7mm Fatso and the 7-300 Win mag..
    I have read with great interest about the 7-375R but would like to hear about the other peoples experiences with any of these calibers please??

    Hi, have you got a pic of the rifle? I have a M595 and was thinking of giving it similar treatment...would be keen to get a ''preview'' of what it may look like.

    Very nice and thanks lads for your comments! !
    Really liking what I see!
    Just wondering how easy it is to get the kit sent over to the UK? ?
    Either a built rifle - or reamer, dies and brass for a build
    Any others experiences mostly appreciated too!
    All the best from over the pond!
