Re: 7MM-Rem-Mag-vs-7MM-WSM

Jake.....
My 7mm STW is launching the 168's at 3340 out of a 28" barrel. I am not at max pressure yet, but have to be close. Might give that a try also. Nothing wrong with the 7 mag of 7 RUM though either. My 7mm WSM's I have are hard pressed to get to 3000 fps with a 168 gr. berger in a 24-26 barrels. I know some people have great luck with them and get more velocity, but I don't seem to get it....even with their loads.

Re: 7MM-Rem-Mag-vs-7MM-WSM

Have you checked the case capacity between the two cases in question?I like the no belt of the wssm but I like the the 7mm rem also.The problem with the wssm is factory rifles are built on short actions which limit overall length of the round.To get 7mag performance out of a wssm the thing needs to be built on a long action so as to be able to seat the bullet out and get the needed powder room.As for performance my #1 Ruger 26" will produce 3100fps with 160gr sierra game kings.A classic load for same is 79.5gr of H870 & a fed 215 primer.

Re: 7MM-Rem-Mag-vs-7MM-WSM

Well I am by no means an expert, but what are you talking about - 270 will out do a 7mag?? Maybe I'm not understanding you. I have a 270win and it will shoot 130gr at 3000fps all day, but it will not out do a 7mag period. As for all you that don't like the belts, why?? I have a few and my favorite 300win mag has brass fired up to 10 times before it's (brass) junk. I like the WSM's but I think if you already have the belt, just love it for what it is. If you have a RUM, then just love it for what it is. If you.... well you get the idea.

Thanks for listening to the ranting of an old belted shooter.

Doug

With the wsm you are stuck with the winchester brass.
