Welcome to the forum.

If you read through the first page of this thread, post #17 in particular, you will see the 7 mm Ackley Magnum (AM) existed before the 7 mm Remington Magnum, and was originally formed from .300 H&H brass. Unlike the Ackley Improved (AI) series of chamberings, it did not have a parent cartridge you could just fireform to the larger AI size.
