Ok I have a custom 7 rem Mag with a 28 inch barrel but  I have like 300 Federal nickel 7 weatherby brass laying  around. And What would it cost? is it worth getting it reamed out to weatherby.

I am going to guess that you already have your mind made up on this one, but IMO ... no.

I have a coworker with an old Weatherby 7 WM.  It is a beautiful rifle, but the cartridge offers hardly any performance improvement over the 7 RM.  I notice Weatherby's published velocities for the 7 WM are quite a bit tamer than those in the old catalogs.

My opinion is why bother?  You can get into a lot of 7 RM brass for the price of rechambering.
