7mm WSM

I have been looking at getting 7mm WSM made up. I would like your thoughts on the cartridge with regards to its long range performance, accuracy, your experience with it, bullets used and some of the kills you have made with it.

    This thread should tell you all you need to know.

    It's the reason I am going with a 7mmWSM.

    That is one of the best combinations that I have seen. If I could put together some thing half as good I would be happy.

    You asked for some performance also here is the thread of an outing with myself and nate with the rifle above. I was shooting a 6X47lapua and nate was shooting the 7mm-300wsm.

    another long range hunt 604 & 671 & 1280 yds.!

    I love it, and was just out shooting mine yesterday at some steel plates at 1,240 and 1,360 yards. Don't believe teh poor barrel wear comments, as I currently have 1,250+ rounds (most of it in F-Class cometition - meaning 25 rounds in about 18 minuites wit an hour then repeat) through mine and she is still a hammer.

    look at these threads. Not too bad.

    Look at the balistics,they are pretty impressive.This is why I am having one built,I think the 7mmWSM is one of the most overlooked cartridges out there.Alot of guy's are getting +3100fps from a 162gr amax with a BC of .625,they will outperform alot of the big 30's with alot less powder.

    In my opinon this is a great caliber.I have used it to hunt with the last 2 years.I have taken animals ranging from varmints to elk.In the last 2 years i have taken 4 elk,2 with the 175 Matchking, and 2 with 180 Berger, at ranges of 400-600 yards, they have all been good clean kills.Its a great round.
