Re: 7mm/300 wsm or 7mm SAUM?

I would vote 7mmSAUM

BUT

I would build a .284 over one myself. I have a 284 that shoots 162Amax's @ just under 3200 fps with a 30" barrel and 2950 with 180's. The 284 is more efficient than any of the other cartidges on this thread and it is very easy to make shoot and you can get much more out of it than you would ever think.

Re: 7mm/300 wsm or 7mm SAUM?

Great discussion here. I've got a huge hard on for the 7mm bullet selection and will build my next bolt gun in 7mm for sure.


I picked 7mm/300WSM for one simple reason: brass selection. If Lapua made straight 7mm WSM brass it wouldn't be such an issue, but the 7mm/300 WSM unlocks high end brass, just need to fire form and turn the necks.


Plus, the 7mm/300 WSM REAMER has dimentions for a longer neck. get the basic drawing of your smith's reamer and then trim brass to a few thou of that length.

Last I checked lapua didn't make any wsm brass at all. Did you mean to say norma wsm brass?

Heck, at this point in the game any wsm or saum brass can be scarce! I was considering the 7mm saum for my rebarrel but alas no brass, so I'll stick with my 7mm wsm, since I have the brass already.

My bad, I had it in my head Lapua made 300 WSM brass.


Just sent an email asking, no, begging for some! Please do the same. If we flood their inbox, maybe they'll listen lol!

I think Norma is producing 300SAUM brass now. You could always neck it down to 7mm.
