Yep, short bbl. life compared to even the stw and finicky accuracy in some rifles have hurt it a good bit. The recoil and powder usage are up a good bit too for a 7mm. The 7rum is still a good round and I'm thinking of building/ buying another, but I'm pretty sure it is going dodo bird.
I hope either the stw or 7rum makes a comeback; you DO need a big 7mm here once in a while... shoot the heck out of your rifle but keep the bbl. cool.
Where are you in N.D., btw?? I'm in Bis..
