    7SAUM School me...

    Win Model 70 barrel is about f*cked and the gunsmith said they make great SAUM / WSM with the long mag for a SA about 2.90" from memory.

    What barrel length for a 7 SAUM? want to run 162's.

    Cheers.

    Some time ago I ran though this on Quickload with Nor-west, I think he used a Remmy action - its an interesting cartridge with usable H2O capacity of just under 65gns (284 has about 55 and 7x64 60, 7mm Rem Mag 72.4). At 22" you should get a over 2900 fs with the 162's with N560 or AR2213SC and if you went to 24" you might just get 3000 fps (all at 2.9" COL)

    Cheers

    Have had about five of them my favourite cal.. Have had between 21-24 inch barrels and 2900 is easy enough with 21-22 and if you want that magical 3k safer to start at 24 inch

    Make sure your gunsmith has done a few first. I got a M70 converted and had some feed issues.

    Great thread guys. Does anyone have any idea of realistic velocities of a 26" barrel shooting the 162 &/or 180 grainers?
