    This looks like a dead thread. Maybe it'll come back around. I've really been eyeballing the 7STW. Hey, why wasn't my 300 WBY on the list too??

    Go 7mm STW, much better for hunting at distances than 6.5x284. THUMP!

    Why not push the envelope? 7mm/338 Norma Mag? 180 pills at 3200+ fps?

    In answer to BoltActionBob's question about why his .300Wby was not on the list: I think the trend in accuracy gunsmithing has been away from cases which headspace on the belt versus the shoulder for a long time now...but the 7 Rem Mag is probably the most common LRH in this class so what do I know. The issue of brass cost probably also plays a big role. Some designs are just more easily tuned, kind of like Beta vs VHS, now both have been eclipsed.
    I have a 300Wby barrel for my R93 Blaser African rifle, so I am not anti your calibre.
