    7mm and 300 Blaser Magnum case dimensions...........help

    Howdy,

    It appears that my google-fu is weak and I need assistance.

    Can anyone find what the case dimensions are for the 7mm and 300 Blaser Magnum??

    Ive been doing a bit of looking but cant find them anywhere.

    Cheers

    Mods- Feel free to move my post if its in the wrong area.

    Currently there are four, in bullet diameters 7mm, .308, .338 and .375. All are based on the large-diameter .404 Jeffery case, shortened to .30-06 length (nominally 21⁄2 inches), with a common and fairly gentle 30-degree shoulder angle.

    The .404 Jeffery is also the parent case for the Remington Ultra Magnum line, but unlike the Remington offering, the Blaser magnums use a full-diameter 0.545-inch rim.

    Rifle cranks will quickly note that the Blaser magnums are similar to Dakota’s line of proprietary magnums in the same bullet diameters
    The velocity specs I can find are that of the WSM - maybe slower??

    Best i can find...

    From here: New Blaser Rifle and Cartridge Line
    Currently there are four, in bullet diameters 7mm, .308, .338 and .375. All are based on the large-diameter .404 Jeffery case, shortened to .30-06 length (nominally 21⁄2 inches), with a common and fairly gentle 30-degree shoulder angle.

    The .404 Jeffery is also the parent case for the Remington Ultra Magnum line, but unlike the Remington offering, the Blaser magnums use a full-diameter 0.545-inch rim.

    Rifle cranks will quickly note that the Blaser magnums are similar to Dakota’s line of proprietary magnums in the same bullet diameters, but the Blaser ammo will not be proprietary: Norma will distribute it as part of its ammo line.
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    The google-fu is strong in these two!!

    Although how sure are we on the length of the 7mm version being 2.5 inches given the relatively slow velocity of 3150fps with 140grainers and the .300 version is pushing the 165grainers too 3120fps???

    Thanks
