Saw has slightly less capacity. They say it is formed with a simple sizing process vs fireforming that the ai needs but I'm not 100% certain on that. They typically use the same powders with the same bullets.

You can get SAW brass from WTO, no need to form. Thought Varget was the powder of choice but I could be mistaken.

Been shooting 7mm SAW for last 2 years…

Started with 24” barrel and now shooting 20” Barlein with 7” suppressor

162 ELDX is preferred and I use Clayton’s SRP WTO brass

Preferred load is 2750 fps out of the 20” barrel.

Varget is preferred; however with difficulty in finding it, I’ve developed a good load with IMR 4166 that works similar to Varget.

What exactly is the 7mm SAW? What is the parent case?

I believe you just run 7-08/308 brass through the die.

From their website:

This cartridge was developed on Lapua’s .308 Winchester “Palma” brass, which has an extremely strong case head due to its use of a small rifle primer pocket(already proven to work well via the 6.5×47). Brass can be formed in one pass through a 7mm SAW sizer die, and is then ready to load. Standard large primer .308 brass can be used as well. With the continued success of this chambering, we now offer factory headstamped 7mm SAW brass that is ready to load.

I run palma brass in my 7mm-08ai. So it's a wash imo.
