Re: 7mm/300 wsm or 7mm SAUM?
No worries, I love a good debate.
Nothing kills better than anything else. Better is an intangeble. However, killing faster, killing more accurately, is tangeble.
If you build a SAUM, based on it shooting the 180 vld at 2900 at 1/2 MOA, but for some reason that barrel wont shoot it well, what do you do?
With the 7 Rem mag, you are at least 150 Fps faster, so you have the same chance of it shooting well, but if it doesn't, you can move up a weight and still have a good short range trajectory. Or, you can go down a node, and still have most of what you wanted.
Aim low, miss low?
50 fps doesn't neccesarily mean everything. There can be 50 fps between two identical builds. However 50 fps on the average, means something, to me anyway.
Its performance for free, so I don't see why you'd turn it down?
