Norma brass is softer than the rem brass. I'm using Nosler custom which I think is made by Norma.

Good stuff Tuckerbox,

I have a 7mm RSAUM in a rem Mod 7, standard 22" barrel, im getting 2990 fps with 67.5gr of 2217, seated long which i have to single feed in the mod 7 short action mag. Shoots very accurately at that velocity.

As a side note, i can get over 2900 fps with the amax in my M595 284win with 7828ssc powder, from a 22.5" barrel.


Interesting velocities, in my Model 7 7SAUM I'm only getting 2855 with 67gr 2217 and the 162 amax.


Bizarre eh, you wouldn't think there'd be that much difference in the chambers or barrels would you.

My velocity has been validated  out too 600 yards.

GWH the Tikka looks awesome in that stock, great work!

Throat length has a huge part to play in velocity. If you chamber with a longer throat that has a nice smooth transition into the rifling (aka Weatherby magnum style) you can get a lot of "free velocity". My 7stw was chambered this way as well by Abe and once you let go of feeling the need to touch the lands the resulting loads can be surprisingly fast  and accurate.

Thanks Kim, i'm extremely happy with the way its come up, Andrew did an awesome job of bedding and fitting it.

Interesting what you say about length of throat, but makes sense. Hey btw did you have the M595 rechambered or did you buy it already done? Who did the job? It certainly has a verrry long throat, but it bloody shoots doesnt it  Cool

Arthur Cleland did the work. At first I was worried about the COL needed to touch the lands...but needn't have worried. All the old gun magazines from the 80's are full of articles on long throats, it will become the "in thing" again as there's only so much you can do with a rifle and the trends tend to come around just like any fashion.

Thanks KJ, well it certainly doesnt effect the way it shoots being seated a long way off the lands.

my long range rig, Model 70 in .264 win, and March scope.
Shoots factory 130gr accubonds well, and have 140gr Hornardy HPBT giving 2" four shot, groups at 300m, just not sure if I should hunt with them,
Have started working up loads for 140gr accubonds, looking good for now, with IMR4350, trying to get a lb of reloader 25 or sum retumbo to try. Althought that might not matter as, looking good for permints to ship all firearms back to NZ at end off Month.

Picked up this thing today, 7mm Rem Mag. Pretty bloody stoked especially considering what I payed for it!
Bedded in a Bell and Carlson stock, 27" heavy fluted (trueflight?) barrel, nice trigger.
Will be sending it into gunworks to have it threaded for a brake, looking for a rail and 30mm rings and im thinking a Vortex Viper PST to go on top.
Anyone want to have a guess at what action its built on? (I know, sort-of...)

Its a BSA. Monarch by the look of it.

Correct, I have never seen a rifle " built" on one of these actions, its a very nice looking and feeling action though. Interested to see how it shoots, bloody barrel on it is like a cannon compared to any other rifle i have had!

if your sending it to gunworks, get them to install a rail while its there, as they can get it straight.
  

Just do it

I once bought a Monarch magnum action brand new off Hugh Bradley, he had obtained a few bits like that years ago.
Nice looking rig  Cool
