So you're going to sit on a fence? What we have here is a case of subjectivity vs objectivity. The OP or anyone else has a choice, but that does not mean they choose the best tool for the job. He had his reasons for his choice which I respect Sir. But it doesn't make it the best choice for the job.
By you're above reasoning, the 270 WSM is just as good for shooting elk @ 1000 yds as is a 7RM... correct? There is less difference between a 270 WSM shooting a 165 Matrix to a 7RM than there is between a 7 and a 300. Therefore since the 300 WM is no better than the 7 because it's bigger, neither is better than the 270 WSM. Heck, let's not stop there, not much diff between a 6.5 WSM and a 270 WSM, there fore the 6.5 is just as good as the 300.
I'm not trying to change the OP's mind about his choice, I'm just throwing the BS flag about the BS that a 7RM is as good a LR killer as a 300 which is total BS.
And Mudrunner, The 300 WM is not my baby. I have a 300 WSM and 300 RUM and prefer them over the WM. I also have a 7RM.[/QUOTE]
Talkin about BS!!! Aparently You sir have not read my posts like you should have! I have already givin my input on the 7 mag!! I, for one, love it! I have not been on the fence about nothing! I have never said anything negitive about the 300wm!!(go back an read my posts)!! This tread is about a gentleman wanting to get a caliber that he likes an can familiarize his self with!!! He made his choice!!! If you sir want to ramble about other calibers( calibers that I personally think are great) then that's your right! But don't try an (1)put words in my mouth(2)push or bully others into accepting what you think is right(3)just because the OP chose another caliber to his liking doesn't meen that its not the best round up to the yardage that he is gonna use it for!! Just because he made a differant choice other than yours, doesn't meen he's wrong!! Bottom Line!!!! Quit Pushing Yourself On Others!!!
