Re: which 7mm

Forgot to mention that my action started life as one flavor of RUM or another.

Re: which 7mm

Since you have an RUM action I think that solves it. You can't do any better performance wise on your action than a 7mm RUM. I have two of those and six 7mm STW's and love both. But for your action with 180-190 grain bullets The RUM case would be good. The STW not that much less with performance and better on barrels. The STW can be shot without a break by most but the RUM starts to punch a bit if that makes any difference. Lots of things to consider.

Re: which 7mm

well I somehow forgot that I already have a wyatts mag box for a RUM action and a break was planned for no matter what cartridge I went with. I thought about a 7 mag but I have a number of mid intensity cartridges 30-06, 350 rem mag, 338-300WSM(on the way from a smith here), I just didn't feel like it was the step up that I am looking for with this next rifle build. Thanks for all the help.

Re: which 7mm

Good choice there. The 7mm remington is a good mid level cartridge with similar performance to the 280 AI and 7mm JRS off a blown out 280 case but not going to improve anything over what you have. My 7 mm remingtons never get used because I always go with the JRS in the mid level and when I want a magnum I shoot my 7mm STW's and RUMs. Just kinda leaves the remington in no mans land. Good cartridge but the JRS does basically the same thing with less powder and recoil.

Re: which 7mm

Search for the 7mm-300 Win in the google search in the top RH corner of the page, it's been outstanding with the 180 Bergers and should just rock the 195's and in the velocity range your looking for with that length barrel!!! It would take it up the notch your looking for without the abusive nature of the 7 RUM.

Re: which 7mm

There are quite a few that like the 7 Mashburn at 24 campfire. It is similar to the 7mm-300 win mag in case capacity.

Here is a long thread on it:

7MM Mashburn Super ???????? - 24hourcampfire

Midway lists dies for it here:
Midway International - 7mm Mashburn
