If you do go WSM, get a savage in WSM. Their WSM actions utilize controlled round push feed, and a standing ejector rather than a plunger.
Overall, superior to any other for this cartridge,including any customs that I know of. IMHO

In order to rebarrel the Savage you would need to get a short mag bolt head ($35) and a barrel($250) , the savages use a jam nut to set the head space so you use a head space guage or a FL resized case and put it in the chamber and close the bolt , screw the barrel down till it hits the guagethen run the lock nut down to the action and tighten it.
You may have to modify the mag lips , not sure with an already existing mag ,

With any other guns you'll need to send it off to a smith and have the barrel installed and headspace set.

Re: the magnums:short/long

In my test you give up 250 to 300 fps with the short mags if you load to the same preasure in each.

I have loads for the 7mm RSAUM w/150 gr @2975 and load for the 7mm Rem Mag w/150 @3300 fps.

Both factory Remingtons but the 7mm Rem Mag is a Sendero with 26" barrel so it has a 2" barrel advantage.

Both rifles shot well enough to do anything I want to do.
