I'm going to get started reloading soon and I'm leaning toward a new gun in 7mm WSM
for long range hunting and possibly tactical competitions. I've read a lot of threads on the relative merits of that cartridge vs. .300 WSM
, and 7mm mag. I am having a heck of a time finding a rifle with a medium or heavy contour barrel (26-28"), removable box mag, and preferably a synthetic stock, that won't break the bank. For hunting, I like the Browning X-bolt Long Range Hunter, but it isn't offered in 7mm WSM, and it wouldn't be ideal if I wanted to use it for tacitcal competitions. Does anybody have any suggestions for a different rifle? I'm not afraid of carrying a little weight. Thanks!
