Hi everybody,this is my first post here on LRH,i hope youŽll understand me,my english is not the best. (from Slovak Republic,Europe. lovec_1 stands for hunter_1 ).
I have following problem: Want buy rifle for LR hunting/target shooting,no matter of brand,but with one of this two calibers: 7mm WSM
and .270WSM. I have oportunities for shooting up to 1000 meters (approx. 1093 yds.).
- positives: rifle easy to buy (Tikka T3 Varmint),available brass in Europe
(Remington,Norma....),very good aftermarket stock (Roedale RCS)
- negatives: small assortment of high BC bullets (only BergerŽs VLD 150grs.),
are there any other good choices? short factory barrel 23,5"
- positives: possibility to use bullets with high BC (Berger VLD 168-180grs.),
very important for me.
- negatives: no rifle here... :-( , low availability of brass (only Winchester?),
eventual necessary re-barreling from .270WSM,higher costs (new barrel...)
But generally i am fan of 7mm WSM,with high BC bullets can out-perform many .30 calibers (except of ultra mags and some wildcats), and i think it provide better resistance against wind-drift then the .270WSM.
Thanks for your opinions a recommendations.
