They say they use a .284 WRP. He says it is similiar to the 7 mm STW. He mentioned that the 7mm STW does not lend itself to good accuracy because of its geometry? Just wondering what ya'lls opinion is on this?

I think John Burns needs to get off the crack is what I think. I have not seen a 7mm STW that would not shoot period. It is a Very Accurate round and does go a lot faster then 7mm mag at least 250fps from what I have found. As for a 30 cal being better I do not agree with that either. I also will say the big 7 has less recoil even when bullet weights are the same when compared to a 300 win. I have added some targets you can look at.
That is 3 shots at 100 yards with a 200grain Wilcat.
Same bullet at 320 yards the dot I was shooting at is 2inches.
Here are a couple of more 100 yard targets.
This is a Barnes 140 TSX 3 shots.
Here are 160 Sierra HPBT 3 shots.
The last one is with me shooting 140 Accubonds of a bipod in the snow with no rear bag at 500 yards. 3 shots as well.
