By the way, I still have the 7x300 reamer. It has cut exactly one chamber. A gunsmith in Fairbanks did the work, and I must say that I have always been pleased with the result. I often get a hankerin' for that extra four inches, but when analyzed objectively, there's simply no good reason to scrap a rifle that shoots like a laser just to hope to get 150 more MV.

Also, the 7mm RM shoots that 115-grain HP with the same level of precision that the 7x300 does. It's just a good bullet design. Unfortunately, it has a poor BC. The 7mm RM and the 7x300 are Remington model 700 actions. The 7x57 Mauser is a model 77 Ruger. The Ruger has a HORRIBLY out of round chamber, but it shoots sub-MoA. It just occurred to me that I should scrap that 7x57 barrel and put a .308 Win barrel on it. Again, though, if it ain't broke... and this rifle ain't broke.
