If it has to be 7MM what's wrong with the Rem. 7MM?
For a hunting, unless one just has to have the extra 150-200fps velocity the 7MM Rem. is just as good as any. The 7MM brass is as strong as any and if handloaded to the same pressure as the WSM-RUM the difference would be even less. One can have a longer throat and load 175Gr well over 3000fps with 24" barrel in the 7MM.Rem. using some 20 grains less of powder then the RUM.
