About the rifle, I think that I am going to have Chris Mathews of LongShot Rifles build me a 7mm. I am trying to decide between 7mm WSM and 7mm RSAUM. From what I can see, it appears that the RSAUM may be the better choice of the two but it doesn't look like it has caught on very well so I am worried that the brass is not as popular, harder to get, and of lower qualitythen the brass available for the WSM. What do you all think?
Personaly I think on paper they are both quite alright. The wsm case will offer a bit more velocity over the sarum. The sarum will offer less recoil. Remmy brass isnt very good and winchester is decent. Better than the sarum (IMHO).
If I were in the market for a new 7mm it would be a wsm hands down due to the extra performance and better brass. Albiet I have kicked the idea around playing with the sarum.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
