7mm RUM or STW?

Which is better for me? I have been shooting a 7mm Rem mag for many years and want to reach out a little farther and have same or better accuarcy than the Rem mag. My hunting is in mostly open ground for Mulies and Elk here in Colorado. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Opinions and info appreciated. Thanks.

Re: 7mm RUM or STW?

The first bit of info we need is do you reload? If you dont i would go with the 7 rum as there is some decent factory fodder out there while most of the stw stuff is pretty mildly loaded, If you do reload i would go with stw as it lags behind the 7rum by about 50fps and burns less powder doing so. Good luck, you cant go wrong with either.

Re: 7mm RUM or STW?

hyyw8t, yes I am a reloader and plan on shooting only my ammo. I am somewhat familiar with the STW but have no experience with or know anyone personally who owns a RUM. I was hoping that some members here would be able to point out some particulars between the two and maybe point out some strengths and weaknesses. Thanks for your input, hvyw8t. Wapiti6x6.
