bern0134, when someone says" 7 mm of some sorts", that is a broad spectrum of rifle ammo, but here goes.
The seven mag is an excellent, recoil tolerable round that is avail in a wide gamut of rifles. Nearly everybody makes a rifle in that caliber, they are plentiful, and typically very accurate, and relatively easy on barrels as compared to most.
The seven Weatherby mag, has a little more horsepower,( but not really that much), are also accurate, but finicky. Limited rifle avail, typically Weatherby only, Vanguard, or Mark V. Brass is expensive though.
Now as to the 7 STW, as per my screen name, I am a fan forever. Flat shooting, hard hitting, easy to get to shoot, once you get a GOOD rifle, and components. There is a thread topic in this section," For Those Who Shoot The 7 MM STW". just take a glance at that thread, and you'll get the idea. If you can handle the recoil of a 300 win mag, the STW will be no problem. It actually recoils a little less.
I have always been a 7 MM man. I actually prefer it over 30 caliber, except for big stuff, but, for all practical purposes, I have no large game on my menu, at this point, but if that were to happen, I do have a 300 mag.
Enjoy making your choice, they are all a fun ride ride.
