Ive always been a 30 cal fan. And for some reason I just dont care for the metric system. I know as well as anyone(ok, almost anyone)the capabilities of a 7mag. Flat shootin hard hittin, and just plain fun. Its a proven game taker. But to me its still metric.
If I was being charged by a she bear with cubs(or with out for that matter) Id want the bigger bullet of the 300. Other than that it plain and simple boils dowm to personal preferance. Theres big fans of 7mm's and big fans of 300's, and both have earned thier fanbase for 1 reason or another.
I do appreciate the 7mag's. I guess its just the metric thing I cant get over. Id take a .264WINMAG, over a 6.5x whatever, just about anyday, tho I couldnt tell you why other than the metric thing.
When it comes down to long range, Im a 30 cal fan as well.
I think the 7mag may have an edge over the 300WSM. But Im opinionated, and stubborn as a Missouri mule, so Id still opt for the 300 cause thats how I see fit. Maybe strange thinking to some people, considering the proven track record, and capabilities of the 7mag, but my whole family is the same way........must be grandpa's fault
