A decently hand loaded 270 Win will out do R-P and Norma 7MM Mag rounds. In the same is true for the WSM. However, if the WSMs are loaded properly they will more than do the job but ya gotta put some powder in 'em. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] And they don't have a belt.

Also, sounds like you're gonna land on your feet. That's good. bb did. I did. Now you will, join the club. But hey, sooner or later you just gotta get rid of that J.O.B. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
Had both go with the 7 wsm. A 7mm Rem mag at high pressures with swell above the belt. the wsm is already a improved case with a 35 degree shoulder. Its kind of like comparing a 6br to a 243. They with both do the job but the short fat steeper shoulder improved cartidges are hard not to love. The wsm is a great case design its hard to find fault with.
The 7mm Rem. is a better round as far as I'm concerned. I've never experienced any problems with the belted case and the additional case capacity will come in mighty handy when your trying to scoot those long A-Maxes out there around 3000fps. You also get added mag. capacity and you'll never run into any magazine length issues. My buddy is looking forward to the new .270 cal. Bergers for his .270WSM, but he won't be able to get them anywhere near the lands due to magazine constraints... I would assume the same is true for the 7mm.
