Re: 7mm/08 or .270wsm
Lot's of good advice and I would add another cartrige if ammo wasn't a problem.
The 7-08 is a great cartrige and easy to load, Lot's of bullets to chose from and capable
of outstanding accuracy at great distance.
So with all things being easy to buy the 7-08 would be my first choice.
There are a lot of rounds that will produce more velocity but most are in long actions and
need a longer barrel to achieve there potential.
I have a 7-08, 7-08x40, 7 WSM, (All on short actions) 7 Rem Mag, 7 STW, & a 7 Rem Ultra
Mag and they all have a place in my safe forever.
I have killed more animals with the 7-08 than any other rifle in my safe and it has never
let me down.
I select the rifle to hunt with based on Size,toughness,terrain to be hunted and distance
(I carry the rifle best suited for the game and conditions) and most cases the 7-08 will
be my first choice.
Most of my personal rifles are heavy barrels#5s+ but the 7-08 has a 20" barrel and with
the short action it is a very handy and accurate rifle.
Just my opinion.
