I love the 7 mag. I own a rem 700 pss in 7 mag and many, many critters have fallen to that bad boy. I shoot a 168 gr berger bullet and killed a deer at 721 yds and a cow elk at 814 this year with no problem at all. I vote the 7 mag, it's cheaper and will do everything that you want it to do. just my opinion though.

My 300Wby has the Accubrake on it. My 200 grain load at 3100 kicks about like a 243 in a sporter weight rifle. Just enough I can't spot my own hits at 500 yards reliably.

I have shot the 338-378 Accumark and it kicks about like a 30-06 with 150 grain bullets. They only come with the brake.
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.

NRA Life Member and I vote.

Only accurate rifles are interesting.
