7mm WSM or 7mm rem mag?
i sorry if this comes up alot, but i tried a search, and didnt find anything. though, this could be me. probably is. anyways, i was think of building one of the above mention, but i just cant seem to be able to pick. i would love to just build both, but i cant afford that.
thwe rifle will be used for paper shooting, as well as hunting. but, i live in great ol' illinois:mad:, so i wont hunt with it as much as shoot it for fun, i would just like to have the rifle if i ever do get to go hunting in another state.
i have herd that the 7mm rem mag is better with the hevy bullets. and it looks like the WSm takse the cake with the lite bullets. what would you say would have to be the bullet weight (length) to hunt mulies, and elk? maybe even black bear... i know these have benn taken with .308's, so would a 140, or 150 grn bullet work? which one is easyier on barrels? which is easier to find both in stores and handloading stuff.
thanks alot guys, all info is greatly appreiciated.
