The WSM could be built on either action but I also did not read if you had a mag or standard bolt face?
WSM is going to push bullets a bit faster not buy much but a bit.
If it is a short action the 280 wont work. if it is a long action ether will work.
Don,t decide based on what reamer is available . buy a reamer in the cal an designed
to do what you want. (A new reamer is arround $100.00 + or -.
There is a lot of discussions on the AI at present on this web site. try to read as many
as you can before you go with the AI and make sure you have the right reamer and
head space gauge.
They are both very good cartriges. The 7 WSM is a short version of the 7 Rem Mag and
is its ballistic equal with all but the heaviest bullets. It needs the Magnum bolt face.
Decide what you want and go for it.
