Re: If you had a choice ?

Varmint hunter,
I have not heard Lapua brass is available in the WSM lineup. I would like some for my 270 WSM if I found a source.

I believe it is available in 6.5/284,& 300 win mag. but not 7 RM

Hit-em,

The .280 Ackley may fit your criteria, it practically matches velocity with the 7 RM with a bit less recoil and powder.

You can get 30-06 Lapua or National match brass and neck down.

I don't think you scratched out wildcats, the factory rounds have merit, but that the 280 Ackley is what came to mind when I first read your post.

7wsm gets my vote.

High BC heavy bullets. Retained energy. Efficent cartridge. Low recoil. Can go with shorter barrel. Factory ammo readily available. Have heard win brass is just fine. Flat shooting. Short action or build off long mag action if you want the extra powder capacity by seating out bullets.

Talk to chris matthews. He is first class all the way!

Bullets maybe lite for what you want but think about a 25-06 some of the 120`s are real impresive on the computer

Re: If you had a choice ?

I think I've settled on the cartridge (for Now ???) [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Drum Roll...........

The winner is !!!!!!!

The 7 Rem Mag !

When I compare it to some of the other choices,it's just the best suited for what I'm looking for in regards to efficientcy & overall rate of return.
I did think about the 7 STW, but thought my gain over the 7mm Rem Mag was not worth the additional powder charge & recoil.

I want to thank everyone for their replys, if anyone has any other thoughts or suggestion I would appreciate them.

Thanks,
