I'm sold on the WSM's. I would go for the 270. Berger makes a decent 150 that will get you out there. Hornady has that new GMX bullet that shows promise. The 150 Nosler Partition, Ballistic Tip, and Accu-Bond will do the trick. Sierra shows promise in their 135 SMK, and 150 Game King. Speer should offer some good solid hits with their 130 and 150 Hot-Cor and BT's.
This of course if you reload, but if not, they offer most of the bullets I have selected in decent factory loads. Go with the 270.
I would save the 7STW when you want to enter Howitzer status and build a rifle with a 28 to 32 inch barrel and take advantage of the powder capacity and bullets available.
