I agree that the 7mm is better...but I don't have a 26" Krieger in .284, I have one in .270...

If you build it, let me know how it turns out, it ought to be a smoker with a 130gr. bullet

Also thinking about running some 110gr AccuBonds or Tipped TSX's out of her...

shoot ball powders, don't get it hot and you will extend barrel life by a good bit.
let us know how it works jeep

Will do RR. My smith is gonna call PTG next week about a reamer, so I'll know if its a go or no go then.

I'll make you a good deal on some 270WBY brass if you go that route.

Okay I'll check that route out too. Weatherby brass is harder to get and more pricey tho, that's also why I was leaning towards the RUM.

26" barrel too...won't make much difference but maybe...

Looks like the RUM has about 20% over the Weatherby in case capacity...
