    Dave Ward in Dovedale does. He’s doing one for me as we speak - 7-08 to .284 Win. The last one he did shoots 162s ELD-X into .5 MOA 5 shot groups. He knows what he’s doing.

    The 7 Blaser mag makes more sense than the 28 Nosler Similar performance with around 10 grains less powder. The Nosler dies are cheap but the brass is expensive & hard to get here The Blaser...

    How far have you pushed your current set up? Its possibly a lot more capable than you think it is. A 168 Berger or ABLR in front of Retumbo or RL26 is no slouch on long range steel or animals.

    If you are happy to single feed, a real easy solution could be to just increase the throat length on your rifle while keeping it as a 7mm mag. Seat the projectiles way out, which will free up case...

    if you're keen on a non belted 7mm mag, do some home work on the 7mm BlaserMag. 128186 It will fit your mag better & will give you ~ 100fps over a 7mmRM burning less powder :thumbsup:. Not...
