If it is a short action I would recomend the 7/08 because it is very capable and has won many 1000
yard matches and with the heaver bullets well capable of taking down elk at 400 to 500 yards and
deer well beyond 600 yards.
The 7/08 AI (7/08x40) can be equal to the 7 WSM with some bullets and would not require any
action modifications. It will bump the velocity around 150 ft/sec over the 7/08.
The 7 WSM is a great cartrige but requires extensive action mods.And unless you want/don,t
mind spending more money it would also be a good choice.
