Re: 7mm vs 300 wm.

I think something to note is that the 7 will pretty much do ballistically what the 300 will do with less recoil. This is because you get better B.C.s with lighter bullets, which equals less recoil. When you compare theses 2 calibers you have to balance what you need/want. The 7mm will recoil less and have a better ballistic arch but will arrive with less energy than the 30 cal. So you have to decide how much energy you wish to have and how much recoil you want to endure. I decided on a 7mm becasue I enjoying the shooting and its important to me. I prefer to run a 150/160 gr bullet than having a similiar BC bullet in the .30 cal at 200gr, plain and simple for me its recoil vs energy and I feel that the 7 has enough enegy (Ft lbs) using these weight bullets. The .30 has more but the 7 has enough.

Yeah, I agree, the 7 is a very capable round. I've put down a lot of critters with it and it has never failed me.

Re: 7mm vs 300 wm.

As I look at his velocities that he is stating it makes me think and do some research. I am new to the numbers game. I have been hunting with and shooting rifles for years, but I am new to the long range accuracy game. But I am noticing that the numbers he is stating for the 7mm are way too high. Those are the numbers that I am pumping out of my STW, not a standard 7mag. As for the 300 wm numbers they do seem to be close to what I have been able to see others acheiving.

Re: 7mm vs 300 wm.

Soundwaves, if you are asking which is the best all around hunting rifle between these two it is the 300 winchester by far. You must compare realistic velocities with good quality hunting bullets when doing a comparison.
