I use Extreme powders (not temperature sensitive) for hunting.
I do not see any difference of accuracy in my custom built 284 Win, 7 SAUM, 7WSM, or 7 Dakota XP's.

If there's one thing I can tell you it's to not trust my memory! I just scrolled through pages of Kirby's posts and did find one where he stated the wsm's do very well in an XP. I could not find where he said anything about the 7wsm being superior in any way. I did not read every word and so I'm not saying he didn't mention something along those lines at some point but I could not find it. I will hereby withdrawal my previous statement. Just trying to help.
If your not questioning your sanity your not hunting hard enough!!!

I have not chatted with Kirby for awhile now.
Maybe a good excuse and ask him about his Wizzum thoughts.
I shot my best 1K 5-shot group ever last year with a 7WSM and 180 grain JLK's.
