Re: Need Some Advice-.270wsm, .300wsm, 7mmRUM

This is all good advice, Ive been looking at other forums ive joined and everyone that has replied are supporting the 300 wsm. This is the rifle i was leaning more torward due to the fading out of the .7mm wsm which before today i figured was superior but it now seems i stand corrected. The next step is to find the best manufacturer. Ive compared the Browning A bolt and the Savage American Classic and due to quality and that the Browning holds 3 vs the Savages 2 rounds and its not a wsm, I chose Browning 300wsm. Is there a better made rifle?

Browning Xbolt, 300wsm, awewome rifle, but best bang for your buck new Weatherby S2 stainless, accurate, heavy enough that you wont need a brake but not so heavy that you will hate carrying it, MOA out of the box, put a good zeiss conquest 3-10 on that puppy and your good to go

You can use a 150 grain TTSX or BST for deer/antelop/sheep/goats and shoot flatter than the other calibers less the 300 RUM it is about an inch flatter but will beat the **** out of you unless you have a 12# rifle which is zero fun. the 180 grain for bear/Elk/Moose and you have it all covered. Yes its sexy to have a 257 roberts for goats, 3006 for deer, 300 for elk, but one gun, one caliber makes you a deadly dude.
Yep on the 30 mags being the new '06. They are 300 fps or more faster than the '06 and have enough boiler room to pitch a LOT more bullet to usable speed. They really don't recoil much more than the standard '06 until you get into the ultra, etc.. I've got a 300 rum in lh bdl that weighs in at 9# scoped, but it sure isn't for everyone as it flat will punch you(1/2" 100 yard groups though). The stw hits with as much energy as the 300 win/short win and has flatter trajectory, but is is a 7mm and no one is really chambering it, so it isn't for everyone.
