Re: Help me decide which caliber for my WSM build? ;)
I went through all of this and took the approach that I wanted flat shooting at long distance, good velocity, good bullet choices, good energies at POI (In other words optimum performance from a
24'' barrel built on a short action and be reasonably light rifle.
After running the numbers I narrowed it down to two choices. The 270 and the 7MM.
The fact that the 7mm has the most case capacity of all the WSMs and a very wide selection of good
bullets with high BCs that was my final choice.
I think the poll reflects that the consensus is the 7mm WSM. They are all good cartridges and the
other ones that I liked are the 6.5, and the wildcat 338/300 WSM.
Just my opinion
