Re: downsides to single shot long range rig?
I agree with everything said above. I also shoot and have loaned my 7STW to friends doing the Colorado elk and deer combo hunts. Before you buy do a little research. My only negatives on the 7mm WSM and 7mm Rem. SAUM are the case volumes. They just don't hold enough powder to use the slow powders for long barrels.
Most of my hunting rounds are SPBT's In magnum guns if you have a few rounds in the mag. Take a look at the ones in the mag after firing. They all get a dented nose. Also in cold hunting I keep my bullets in a front shirt pocket to keep the powder temp somewhat nearer to my preseason bench rest shooting
