Want to start a build..

Ok I have Remington 700 lss in 7mm RUM.. After two surgeries on my shoulder I can't shoot it unless I put a break on it.. My question is since I won't be using it for awhile I want to rebuild it.
What are your guys opinion on a caliber I loved my 7RUM but I herd of this 7RUM XL??? I don't know much about it? Yes and the Gunwerks 7mm LRM which I don't understand why it has better BC then both the STW and RUM?? That another question for you guys? I think I want to stay with a big 7 because I have 300rum.. So what is a good big 7 for long range hunting or even your favorite big 7???

As far as big 7's, you are on the right track. I am not sure what you are referring to on the BC as that is up to the bullet you choose, not the caliber. Within the 7's, the RUM will be the fastest, followed by the LRM and STW. A 7 dakota would be another one in that range as well.

Re: Want to start a build..

Hard to understand this... You had surgery so you want to rebarrel your 7 RUM because it kicks too hard... and want to rebarrel to another hard kicking magnum... and you want to stay with a big 7 because you already have a 300 RUM???

Get a brake. Nothing wrong with them that ear plugs can't cure.

How about a 7SAUM. Guys are killing big game including bears and elk at long range. Most are using either 180 or 168 Berger bullets.

From a guy who's had more orthopedic work than the 6 million dollar man I say go with the STW. You get neck and neck performance with the Rum at dramatically reduced muzzle blast and recoil. Put a good brake on like the Snown Mountain Rifles Muzzle brake on an 8lbs rig and you will be in love.

Another vote for the 7mm STW.
