Lovin it! First time I stop by in ages and you're playing with the JJ's Brit again. Fantastic.

One of these lifetimes I'm going to get hold of a 7mm barrel blank, a Savage 110, and make one of these at the "proper" 2.55" OAL just to see what it can do. Betting that will hold about 8gr more powder, something a little slower and more suited to a 22" barrel. You shouldn't keep all the fun to yourself ya know!

Stay well!

good to hear from you.

it is a good little cartridge, and would probably make a good cartridge shooting anything from 6.5mm to .308, assuming appropriate weight bullets are used.

i favor 120 to 130 grain 7mm's, but anything similar should work equally well.

i am getting too old to do a lot, and would welcome "passing the torch" to someone such as yourself who would like to tinker with the cartridge. it would please me, no end, truth to tell.

as presently constituted, it is an absolute pleasure to shoot, and gives surprisingly good performance.

to to it? just let me know how it all works, o.k.

p.s. i've been out of town for about 4 days, so a little late in replying.

i trust things are a.o.k. for you and yours.

yup, we're good. Trying to get a home renovation project moving. Eats up a lot of time and even more money!
