So the question is SPECIFICALLY, if you had to start all over with currently having no big game rifles, in which of these cartridges would you chamber your next big game rifle?

With those criteria the 7WSM is the best for me. The 270WSM would be right with it but not on the list. You can shoot anything with it. Prairie dogs to moose.

The 7WSM is discontinued in several rifles I would like to buy.

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

without a doubt in my mind it would have to be a 6.5x.284 Norma , everyone knows that 6.5 m/m is the perfect bullet dia.even if you won't admit it . The 6.5x.284 has every thing you want ,excellent 1000 yd.accuracy fron a 140 gr. bullet with a ballistic co. of 600 +/- that hits on target like a runaway locomotive. Whats not to like ?

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

I'll go with the .338 Lapua/.338 Edge. this thing is such a good long long distance calibre the game dont even spook as you knock em over 1 x 1 although i still have very soft spot for my 7mmSTW on my Ruger No.1 action with which i have taken chamois and Thar from across some mighty big valleys.(but it's not on the list)
