I have both the 7mm RM and the 270 WSM. Both cartridges hold about the same amount of powder. (70 to 71 grains.) If you're loading 150gr bullets in both, they should kick the same. However the 270 WSM often is found in a short action, and works well in a 24 inch barrel. This makes for a lighter rifle. (kicks more) My 7mm RM is in a Remmy 26 inch SPS Varmint heavy rifle. (kicks less)
So these two are very similar in the same weight rifles. They kick similar to a 30-06. The 270 WSM is more fun to walk with all day. The 7mm RM shoots heavier, high BC bullets.
Seems like you pays your money and you takes your choice.
One more thing if I may... Seems like the guys around here love either the 7mm Mag or the 30-06, but not both.
Just an observation not a judgment.
