The 7-08 is RIGHT(as are all the .473" S/A offerings)...as it's throated in accords to the 8" and wears a fhuqking 3" box.

The Long Actions are Goat Fhuqks in comparison.

Oxford, Ms
Stick,
Of your many posts the ones that have helped me the most are those with the caliper, brass, and bullets in question. Removes doubt as to seating depth and need mag length.

It's nice to be afforded the luxuries,of not being forced to guess...if only to the chagrin of Window Lickers everywhere.

Hint...................(grin)

A) Yes, 8 twist.
B) The 280 AI and .223's are delayed while they lengthen mag boxes (which requires the overall action be lengthened).
C) Don't believe every thing you read on the internet............

You'd think someone woulda mentioned 1-7" 224 and 243 Grendel desires.

Hint.................(grin)

I think it will happen. I'll venture the 22-250 will cease for them and the CM will take off at a sprint.

I shoot 1-7" to 1-14" 22-250's(with a coupla RPM stops betwixt,along with High RPM 22-250AI's and 224 Kreedmire. The Kreedmire is easily the best mechanical design.

Or build on a Montucky wearing any spout you wish,for less.

Nice to spec neck diameter(I'd go .258" for a couple thousandths Alpha clearance),throat geometry(I'm groovin' on .090") and RPM (8" will do Winter 88's at low tide). Due the rather modest COAL with 88's,the Montucky is a fantastic Donor and I prefer it's stock ergo's to Fieldcraft,by a goodly margin.

Start talking longer cases and projectiles of greater length and the Fieldcraft STEALS the show.
