Gotta agree 110%. If you love and know the 7mm, build the 300 into a custom 7.
You could always keep the .300 Sendero tube and build a .300 Ackley out of it. Very easy to develope a load for. And if it is the factory Sendero 1:10 barrels, it should like the 210 Berger VLD's. You simply fireform new .300 Wby brass into the Ackley chamber. No special seating depths, no seating into the lands, no nothing out of the ordinary. Simple and easy, because it's belted.
Just figured I'd throw out that option, to help save you some coin on a new tube. You could save that $350-450 for reloading components.
