Lets say the majority goes with 7mm/300wsm, will regular 7wsm dies work or not. Seeing as how i've already got 7wsm dies.
I know from what ive read the 7mm/300wsm is made off of the 270wsm or the 300wsm i've also got 100rounds of new 270wsm brass.
But if ya'll think that the 7wsm is the way to go thats good too, just curious what the rest of you guys thought.
One more thing what barrel length would ya'll go for i will do most of my shooting at targets 70per. of the time so weight isnt a big issue for me.
I have had both the 7WSM's and the 7-300WSM's my personal pick would be the
7-300WSM, for a few reasons.
1- a longer neck for more bullet support when used as a repeater.
2- very easy use of Norma .270 brass
As far as dies you can use a Redding type S .270WSM full length sizer, with a .312 neck bushing, with no alterations and a 7WSM seating die can be used with no alterations, but I do like to shorten the bottom of the die to accommodate the shorter head space.
Things to ponder though as the 7-300 is not for everyone
1- A 7-300WSM will chamber in a .270 WSM factory rifle..BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN!
2- No factory ammo available
it will definitely be the 7-300WSM for me as I like as little brass prep as possible and the longer neck.
Just my $.02
