7mm Rem mag

Recommended Posts

I was looking to build a .284 Win but the action I have got appears to be slightly to long for reliable mag feeding, I thinking of going 7mm Rem and using 175 grain Scenars has anyone used this calibre and have any true details on Barrel life.

Cheers Paul

Not got one myself but guys I know that hunt with one have between 1000 and 2000 rounds.

If your target shooting Don't expect more than 1000.

that's what I thought I know it's not a popular choice for a 7mm but I think it will feed more reliably than a .284 or wsm.

What action have you got that's too long for a 284?

7x64 is worth a look at, or 280Rem, a lot more barrel life than a 7 Rem mag and only 150 or so fps less velocity depending on barrel length.

Don't know who's told you that Paul, but the XL is a fine action for a .284. It will feed perfectly from a slightly tweaked .300 win mag magazine.

 

The XL will obviously have to have the .308 bolt face for a .284.

 

The 7mm rem mag uses the magnum bolt face.

Thanks for your input chaps I have tweaked my mag and changed the angle of the top and it's loading perfectly so a .284 is still an option.
