    I love the cal and shoot it necked down as a 7stw, but having both 30's and a 338 I really don't need one. Done over again with what I know now, I'd have to try one though.

    I have always wounded if a 6mm Rem. 7mm Rem Mag, & 8mm Rem Mag would not make a great 3 gun set for hunting North America. The only one I have had any reservations with is the 8mm Rem Mag because of bullet selection.

    I think we have found a potential 7 STW going to be.

    lloyd, You have good experience, what's your favorite whitetail load and typical distance you harvest them? If you have an 8mm rem mag you are using.? Or is it a 8mm rem mag necked down to something.
