7MM Weatherby Mag. vs. Remington 7MM Utlra Mag. vs. Remington 7MM Mag.

Which would be a better round for 500-700 yard shooting for sheep, deer, etc? I am open to other caliber suggestions that you might have also.

Thanks,

bvolcic

    Heck they will all work. Unless you are making a single shot the magazine length may be the determining factor. Recoil and barrel life might also be a consideration.

    Your choice

    I would nix the weatherby, unless you are going with an improved shoulder. And forget the rum, its fast but a horrible barrel burner. Consider the 7mm rem may and the 7mm wsm. I would go beltless and choose the 7wsm or a 7mm-300wsm.
