I hope I read that wrong - the OP didn't really confess to a violation of the game laws in any state I know, did he? I also hope his stepfather is exaggerating about those 7x57 loads. Just to pick a common load from Nosler #6, a 140 over 51.5 grains RL19 tested at about 2,900 fps. That's max load, compressed, at 107% case capacity. That old Mauser 7 is no wimp. The .280 Rem loads the same bullet over 57 grains RL19 for 3,150, within 200 of the 7 Mag. Book values, of course, but if you could pack the smaller case with some faster powder to the point of approaching .280 velocities, I do not believe it would be a safe load.
