Re: 300 win mag or 7 WSM for LR elk

If your going with a custom barrel and the gun has a 300WM boat face and mag.. I would look at a post for the 7mm-300wm. It was a great post and with a 28 inch barrel it sounds like the best of both worlds for the 7mm. Something that pushes the 180 over 3000 easy and does not burn out barrels. If I would have not ordered my 7mm rem mag barrel already I would have be contacting some of the guys to try to find were I could get the 7mm-300wm barrel made up. Everything I read about this cal sounded great and with the 195's I suspect it will be even better and from the post you dont have to worry about the barrel going south after about 500 rounds like the 7RUM. But do a search and check out the post...It was a great read.

Thanks everyone! I think I am going to get a 300 win mag barrel again. I like the fact that I can have the option to shoot bullets over 200gr. And I already have everything to reload it.
