300 WSM here to stay? or did I make a mistake
I bought an x-bolt in 300 WSM yesterday. I love the x-bolts, so my concern isnt with that. I woke up this morning with a bad feeling in my stomach. My concern..... is the 300WSM here to stay? I had the intentions of either getting a 30.06 or the 300 WSM...unfortunately all shops around here are out of any "good" brand 30.06s...I really wanted an X-bolt...and both shops told me they were back ordered at least through hunting season, in 30.06 for the x-bolt. I tried a remington 30.06 and a savage, and the X-bolt just felt better to me. One shop had a 300 WSM left so I jumped on it and bought it.
My concern is...the 7mm WSM ammo has basically all but disappeared from shelves, and now most gun manufacturers have discontinued the 7mm WSM lines. The 270wsm and 300wsm seem to still be doing well. I noticed there was actually quite an O.K. variety of 300 WSM ammo which was great. But with the economy tanking here in the U.S., do you all think the 300 WSM will survive? By the way, I do not intend on reloading, but may get into it...the equipment seems very expensive and id rather save for a higher powered scope, right now I have an elite bausch and lamb (BUSHNELL) 4200 2.5-10X40 going on it which by the way is a great scope even in low light if anyone has a chance to pick one up at a discounted price I would suggest it.
