Dilly,
You will find it easier to find 7x64 dies and since the real difference between the two cartridges is the rim on the 7x65R, you can just use 7x64 dies with an 8x57IR/IRS shell holder. This is precisely how I load 7x65R, I adjust the sizing die to just "kiss" the shoulder.

I heard that before Mike and darn near bought a used set of 7x64 dies at the same show I got the einstecklauf at. I figured I spent enough money that day...
The die set was priced pretty much the cost of new anyway. I see that Buffalo Arms has 7x65r in stock...

Wonderful post. I doubt that a drilling is in my future, but if it were, this would be an outstanding reference.

Great thread Dilly!!.. Well done sir!!!

For what it's worth, I bought some Brenneke, 2 1/2 in. slugs to try in three of my drillings. Not one of them shot them any better than yours.

Good to know. Thanks Sharps. And thanks for the kind words and advice everyone. I hope to add to this post this fall as I start using it in the field.

Just for the record I haven't had any luck with the Brenneke slugs in my drilling either.

Very nice write up on your drilling.

I like a lot of double guns but one Wirehair has always been enough for me.

Well done, sir, and congratulations. I like your can-do spirit, and a good job to boot! I have no doubt you will kill plenty with that outfit--beware the one gun man...

Just an update...I think I am pretty much finished with what I wanted to do to make this package complete. I got a case for it...


I had to change the interior around a bit to make the specific accessories fit. Not as hard as one might think. The felt I got wasn't a perfect match, but close enough...


Here it is all put to bed...


Also got set up for "business" too. I have a few leads on some loads but I need to determine what the twist is and what will stabilize best in this little beauty.


The S+B factory shells will more than suffice in the meantime for any deer hunting I may do. I am absolutely itching to get it out for pheasants. Raining today and I don't want to get it wet *sigh*.
