    I still think that my 338/375 Ruger is my favorite of the ones I have now. The 6mm BR, 243, and 300 RUM are all good, but the 338 shoots better than any of the others and hits with more authority at any range.

    I've been thinking about building a 7mm but I'm still trying to figure out which one. I'm stuck in the 284, WSM, SAUM, and 7mm/375 Ruger debate. Thought about the 7mm LRH and Dakota as well. I'm just not sure what pracitcal advantage they would offer over a straight 7mm/375 Ruger.

    On the LRM, I like manufactured and annealed brass, with nice full length bushing dies (Uses Redding bushings) and in-line seat dies from Hornady.

    Well beiny that I only have a .308win and a .243 win barrels for my striker I would have to say I like the .243 win for a long range caliber at the moment. I just feel it does what it needs to do at the range I am shooting. But to be honest I have only had the chance, do to weather and building a house, to shoot a few times and that was only out to 300 yards.
    My goal of shooting out to 1000 yards before fall may have to wait until next year.

    Sort of been hankering for a 330 Dakota in a center-grip recently.
    What difference if any is there between 7 Dakota brass and 330 Dakota brass?
