New rifle build...

I’m getting’ the itch to build a new rifle in the near future. The caliber I’ve been thinking about is a 7mm-300Win Mag. I read, with interest, some posts here on LRH about this cartridge and rifle builds but those were mostly at least a year or two old. Virtually all of those old posts were positive to near euphoric. Those of you who have experience with the 7mm-300, could you tell me the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Do you still feel the same now that some time has passed? Have any glitches or pitfalls surfaced? Would those who have built or bought one, do it again?

Your thoughts anyone?

    Why not just make it a 7mm Remington Mag?
