30-284 vs 308 vs 300 RSAUM

Hey guys,
I was contemplating my tactical rifle concept a bit further today, and came up with the following. I want the action to be a remington 700/7 (many modifications available, and affordable) with a barrel of no more than 21". For a cartridge, I am kicking around chambering either a 30-284, 308 match cut, or a 300 RSAUM(fits the model 7). Anyways I was looking for any suggestions. Additional info is that I do reload, so ammo/availability is no problem, especially for the 30-284(I already shoot a 6.5-284) Thanks

It is just my opinion but with a barrel 16 to 22" I would choose the .308 without even thinking about it much.
Rapid fire is the crutch of an incompetent marksman. ONE SHOT, ONE KILL

I am with Ruff, if you want such a short barrel, go w/the 308 and a semi-fast burning powder.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
