if you were going to build a 6lb mountain rifle and could pick between the 284W or the 7mm wsm
, which would you pick. Max Barrel length 23/24", will wear a compact 2-8 or 3-9 scope in the lightweight talley bases/rings.
I am thinking the 7mm wsm with a 140 or 160 TTSX or the 284 Win with the same, the 140 7mm is about 200 fps faster and the about 150 faster with the 160. Both being basically from the same family which would you choose??? Purpose would be deer, sheep, elk, ram, maybe black bear and caribou
Your thoughts please??
