You folks are pitching me some very helpful feedback, thanks again.

In response to the comment of getting the new rifle built to handle the bigger 7mm bullets...my current rifle is like that now, I wanted to maximize the second 284 for the lighter bullets.

I find it particularly good to learn that boat tails are prone to be less accurate at 200yrds and under than flat base bullets. I'm intending to use the lighter bullets in flat base configuration, and expect to seat these further out in the neck than the 140s. Sounds like that will work out good.
I will need to re-read your comments again a few more times to be sure I mine all the nuggets of good info.
