I'm not a savage guy. I suspect you'd have enough length for a repeater but one of the savage gurus here will be able to answer you better.

You certainly could go straight to a 7mm Rem mag with just a barrel change.

The 300wm is a great cartridge in it's own right though so you are in effect taking a step down going to any of the 7mm's from it.

If it's a shooter I think I'd instead just start over and build another one from the ground up if you can't find a decent used one for the money and have two.

Disclaimer I currently own three 300wm's and 3 7mm STW's and I"m actually considering one more of each at present. Why? I have no idea, hell I can't shoot everything I have now.

It's very close to the 7mm Rem.

The STW can be built on any long magnum action.

Visit our 7mm STW group thread and you can learn a whole lot in a hurry.

Personally as far as I'm concerned there are only two 7mm's, the 7mm Rem mag and 7mm STW, the rest are just fluff HA!

The best thing about the .284win is that it can be necked down to 6.5
Wild, while I own multiples of each 7RM & 7STW, let's not get too hasty......The .280 AI is one dirty bird, too, when you factor in the limitations of the standard bolt-faced modded .280 Rem case capacity...

Re: 7mm???

I built my 284 win off of a savage 116 LA. I throated it for the 195 EOL, but i can run the 162 amaxs to 2857 fps from my 26" barrel. I use necked up lapua 6.5x284 brass. I was putting 1/2 MOA groups at 750 yards a couple weeks ago. Ballistically, it is deadly on deer to 1k+ a little more. And with the 168 grain Barnes LRX its good on elk to 600 yards. All my rounds will fit in the mag.

When you put that in your sig line, remember that is very close in performance to your 280 AI.
