Re: 7mm WSM

Mine impresses me every time I take it out! It's flat, accurate, and smacks pretty hard with the 168 and 180gr Berger VLD's!

Re: 7mm WSM

Is this cartridge a dead duck? I can not find any factory rifles other than Kimber that list it as a chamber in 2009.

Plenty of 270wsm and 300wsm listings but no 7wsm's.

Better stock up on brass!!!!

Re: 7mm WSM

Howa chamber for 7mm wsm. I am looking at one at the moment

Read all this and see what you think.

Real Guns

Roedale Precision - Semi-Custom

7mm WSM -- High-Country Hunter

The Howa rifle is pretty cheap here in Oz and you can get dbm setup for them from the link above and wildog inlet stocks for em (Great Aussie product!)


Goona be my next rig for sure....

Hi Jimbo,

Thanks for the link's

There might be a few of last years rifles still on the shelves in some gun shops but Howa do not list them for 2009.
