    Hmmm well I went for 7x57 then .280 Rem but an Ackley Improved version. nearly brought a 7mm Rem Mag some years back and thinking back wish I had now as it was an almost new P-H M81 Classic.

    7x64 is also an excellent cartridge .

    7x64! It can be uploaded to very nearly rem-mag levels, or downloaded to modest 7x57 speeds. A wonderful allrounder that is very popular on the continent.

    Hmmmm correct me if I am wrong but really the only difference between the 7x57 Mauser and the .275 Rigby is the type of bullet Rigby chose and that was a direct result in his WW1 experiences as I seem to recall. The Rigby uses a rounded nose profile and not a spitzer.
