Resolved Caliber list missing 7mm Remington Magnum and other 7mm options

I notice that the list of calibers has 7mm-08, but is missing any other options for 7mm (including simply “7mm” if one is trying to list reloading components).

Given the popularity, at a minimum, of 7mm Rem Mag, I’d have thought it would be in the list.

You might want to mention where this is missing from. Guessing is pointless.
Sorry - in the classified sections when trying to select a caliber for listing. Also applies when trying to use the filter/search option within the classified sections.

Pull downs are all the rage until your item is not included, and there is no write-in choice for "other".:D

It's often quicker to type than to negotiate a pull down.

I think “other” is at the top. But still not so great. Maybe have some function like the “tag” where users can enter something and have the field start to “auto-fill” based on existing options if they exist. Just thinking out loud...

This new format was supposed to be better, but it surely appears that users dropped off dramatically. Maybe that’s a good thing.

Yeah, just like manufacturers, there’s too many to really get them all. This particular one caught me as odd... I know I’ve seen more than a few 7mm RM rifles listed that picked 7mm-08 in the drop down because the other option wasn’t there.

Really does seem like something similar to the Tag field would almost be a more sane option, if that functionality was possible.

the new system is good because it sets a fixed option for caliber that before you could search for 7mm-08 or 7mm 08 or 7mm08 and they all three would be different. Searching that route was more difficult.

We appreciate the help and feedback as we want to ensure we get as many options on the table.
 
It’s kind of funny that 7mm-08 is listed over 7mm Rem Mag. The 7mm Rem Mag is probably one of the five most popular hunting cartridges in the US and one of the top two or three most popular belted magnums worldwide.
