If you're only planning on shooting the 168 Berger VLD bullets, then you should just go with a straight 7mm RemMag... Mine pushes them 3,115 MV out of a 26" barrel. That should be more than enough for just about anything.
If you were planning on shooting the 180-class bullets, then I'd say step up to the 7mm-300 WM, 7mm STW, or 7mm LRM.
If you're only gonna shoot 160-class bullets, then I'd say you're only wasting money and time by buying and necking-down 300WM brass. Just go with the regular tried and true 7mm RemMag.
