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.

By4camper, you could be right when you say "Seems like the guys around here love either the 7mm Mag or the 30-06, but not both"

Maybe it's an age thing...I have no data to back it up. I wonder the average age of those that prefer 06' and those that prefer 7mm. Maybe that could be Len's next poll.

Who is they?

If you're talking about Nosler, they make a 165 AB.

If you're talking about the ammo makers, I can't help ya.

Re: witch one?

I would pick a 7 RM over a 30-06 and I would pick a 300 WSM over a 7 RM.

Re: witch one?

The 7RM has a flatter trajectory out to 500 yds and a little better wind resistance. The .06 will make a bigger hole, but the 7 will make a big enough hole.

The 300 WSM has the same trajectory as a 7 RM with a bigger bullet and not a lot of difference in recoil.
