7mm Rem. You already have everything you need and I just like it.
the 7wsm is almost identical in performance and the case many think is more efficient resulting in a little better barrel life, but I'd still go with the original.
An alternative well worth considering though would be either the 7mm LRM or 7mm STW. The 7mm Dakota should be considered as well.
Personally I stick with what works, the 7mm Rem and 7mm STW.
