I want a 7mm that I would shoot 160 - 175 grn bullets out of (VLDs, Amaxs and maybe partitions). I was looking at the 280 Rem, 7mm Rem Mag, 7mm WSM
(and others that you could find factory ammo for). Some of my concerns were VLD bullets OAL fitting in magazines and if one cart. was (with all other factors being equal) being more inherently accurate. I don't care about the reduced magazine capacity on the WSM, I can't imagine taking that many shoots in a row. I would use the rifle for long range hunting and shooting. I am confident that the above bullets would take down everything I want to shoot at if I do my job. I do and would reload but I don't want to fire form or have to find components that are not easily avail. I would prob. stick with a Savage if I could. I have a Savage .30-06 that I could rebarrel into a 280 Rem (I can't lie..it would be nice to have 200 fps more...ie 7 Rem Mag).
Thanks for any and all replies
