The only down side is the bullet selection. I chose the 7 WSM and I am glad I did.
I have used a 270 to great success but the problem was always the same, NO good
target bullets and very few good hunting bullets. that has changed a little over the years
but the 7s still have a much better selection.
If the deal is a good one then go for it. If you don't re load all factory ammo is pricey.
The problem with factory ammo is that you have very little choice in bullet weight and
make/design. and they may not allow a rifle to reach it's potential.
