If it were me and I was building one I would put a 7mm wsm on a long action and have it throated .100" deeper that will give you almost a 3.1" OAL very good for 150-168 grn bullets through a 9.5 twist. I think a 7mm RUM is to much of a barrel smoker!.

If its strictly a hunting rifle then you wont be shooting enough to worry about burning out a barrel. The 7RUM outshoots the others no comparison. If you dont like recoil and dont want a break then stick with the 7wsm.

If you build a custom to take advantage of the best bullets in each cal the 270 and 7mm WSM are twins, you can make either one better, I chose the 270WSM. The 7 RUM will do better than the other two just by the fact your burning a pile of more of powder, IMO the only way to go with the 7mmRUM is to have it barreled for the 200gr Wildcat, then your getting something out of all that powder burning!!!

Re: 270wsm vs 7mm wsm vs 7mm ultramag

if it were me, I'd take a very serious look at the 7mm Rem. Short mag. It's about a hundred feet persecond slower than the 7WSM, but the case design leads to much better accuracey and barrel life. Another one to look at is the 7mm Rem. mag improved or better yet the 7mm Weatherby mag. The Weatherby will work in your action length and has a very good neck and shoulder design allowing it to handle big heavy bullets better
