I see that this case has about 5 grains more capacity over the 7 mm Remington case.what speeds are you getting out of them with 26 in barrels using 160 to the 180 grain bullets?do the rifles that you use in 7 mm weatherby shoot 1/2 moa ?thank you for your time.

My Mark V 7mm Wm isn't a 1/2 gun, but with the loads it likes it  will do appx .75 MOA. With the 175 gr Hornady I get 3157 ft/sec with a max safe load of Norma MRP, and with the 145 Barnes LRX just over 3300 ft/sec with a max load of the same powder. I've tried a good many slow burning powders in my rifle, but Norma MRP always gave me the best balance between velocity and accuracy. As far as the long range heavy bullets with high BC they probably won't do well as the 7 mm Weatherby comes with a 1/10 twist which in most cases isn't fast enough of a twist to stabalize these bullets Over all IMO I believe the 7mm Wea mag is the best 7mm mag made. Great balance between power, barrel life , recoil etc.
