wow , a lot of 7mm lover's
I was using a 7mm Rem Mag and i like it a lot..
One life to live, i've try something else.
a 270 WSM, WOW ! shoot few deer with it and in my opinion that's a real Deer rifle.
Then i've deceided to try something bigger, 338 RUM...
Again few deer and 2 moose..God it's powerful and flatter than a 22-250, with a 200gr BallisticTip flying a 3310 fps...Sweet...
Then i deceided to give a try to the 300 WSM
I've bought a Sako Finnlight, put a Limbsaver on it, and shooting 180gr AB at 3110fps... and beleive me..with the limbsaver the recoil is not harder than a 7mm RemMag.
And now..that's the only one i use...and i bought another one ( savage ) as a back-up...
If you compare a 7mmRemMag with a 160gr NAB, VS a 300 WSM with a 180gr NAB..
You will see the 300 WSM is flatter a 500 yards by almost 2 inch..
More speed, more power, more TKO....
And its fun to shoot!
Ive try also many caliber..30-06, 300WinMag, 30-30, 25-06, 270win, and i forget some....But i didnt talk about them, because i didnt kill anything with them..
The worst a have own, was a Tikka 595 Whitetail ( if my memory's good)
in 300 WinMag... She was a Brute to my shoulder! the 595 was light, factory recoil pad from a 8 ply truck tire) I've called her ( Ninja ) each time i've sqeeze the trigger it was like a Punch of Ninja on my shoulder....Grrr..
My 338 RUm is a kiss from an angel beside it....
7MM WSM is already DEAD..forget it.
She's ( 7mmWSM ) in the same league of 30TC, 300-338 RCM....
