7LRM or 7WSM This is painful!

I'm in a little cunundrum. I want a 7lrm but the difference in velocity seems like about 150fps with the 180's between the two. The difference in price for the dies and brass is huge. Win vs hornady brass and propriety vs standard dies. Also the cost of the reamer and gunwerks to do the work is a big difference from what I normally pay from benchmark. I also pay no shipping to benchmark.what do we do here?

    7LRM??? What's that?

    Send the action to Kreiger and have them do the whole thing.

    Budget is his concern including reloading components/dies etc.

    I don't see the added value with going to an even bigger case than the 7mm STW or 7mm Rum. For the cost you aren't gaining all that much and for the cost per round you're adding a lot.

    Consider the 7 Dakota. Same case capacity as the 7 STW without the belt.
