    Since it is a Chambering designed by Gunwerks, if you don't want it in their rifle I would choose something else. It will require their brass or loaded ammo too. Its a Gunwerks specific cartridge, doesn't make sense to me to try and skirt them.

    Gunwerks made the reamer print available a long time ago. You can get your own reamer or find a smith that already chambers in it. It is a great design plagued by several issues with brass. Most of them have been worked out but the brass is still soft. I get we all have budget constraints but their rifles alone are not far off from most of the well know builders.

    Lots of Smith's out there already have the reamer and will chamber a barrel in 7 LRM.

    Their brass is good, but I have seen no solid evidence as to who makes it or if they do either way.

    What action are you using that will not feed a Nosler sized case??

    What exactly do you want to achieve? What will the intended use be and to what distance? If you are stuck on a 7, there are lots of good choices out there.

    There should be no issue using a 28 or 30 Nosler case. If you just want something a bit different, maybe consider doing a 28 Nosler case necked up to 30. But for deer to 800 I would have to take a long hard look at a 6.5 PRC with a Berger 156 at over 3K. Much less recoil and a lot to be respected at those distances.

    I know that Jon Beanland has a 7LRM reamer. He built mine and I paid for half of it.

    I guess I should have carried on a little bit. My 7LRM was the first one Jon built. I agreed to go in halves on the reamer. Jon builds a great shooter and his fit and finish is second to none. I guess my previous post sounded as though I was a little put off, but thats not the case. I am very pleased with my rifle and with any luck I'll be packing an elk out in about a months time.
