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.

I am with Ruff, if you want such a short barrel, go w/the 308 and a semi-fast burning powder.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
