Like I said, it's all about personal preference. 280AI is great. But I'd build a 7WSM before a 280AI with his current line up considered. Regardless, the 7mag he already has will be so close to either of the others it boils down to what is wanted. 7WSM is even more versatile than the AI, plus the #5 tube is better suited for the WSM in my opinion.
