Thanks Oliveralan, I really wanted to go with the 7mm WSM
, but not sure what I would need to change other than the barrel. Can you assist in pointing me to what I need and where to purchase it?
Also, does anyone make a 7WSM barrel with std. shank and muzzle brake
I have an older (non accutrigger) 110 with flat rear receiver.

How important is barrel life for you? Since this is a savage you can -with minimal equipment, change barrels, and have a quiver full of back ups. In that case I would go with the 6.5-284 win as it is a more "proven" 1000yard caliber than a straight .284win.
