G'day all
I've just been reading about the new 28 Nosler . Wondering how it compares to Nathans 7mm practical.
I won't post any links, they're out there if you want to look.
I don't think the barrel would last a long time. You'd need one barrel for working up loads, then a hunting barrel :)

hi bob.
i remember a discussion about nosler rounds before from memory it uses excessive freebore to generate the velocity they claim.
a lot of the modern cartridges seems like they trying to re invent the wheel. believe ruger dropped there 300 rcm cause of slow sales.
a nz guy does 7mm/375ruger builds its called 28 terminator cant remember the velocity figures thou.
think the practical would be the top of my wish list thou

The Davidson brothers at G7 make a 7-375 called the 7LRM. Hornady makes the proprietary case, which I think is more of an elongated neck. Not sure how it stacks up to the 7 Practical. They should be close in performance.
