    Considering one of these in a 7wsm. The only difference I see is the stocks.

    trader388, not only does the Ultimate have that newer styled stock, but the length of pull on it is much shorter, about a 1/2". The new Ultimate does have the one piece bottom metal instead of the two piece metal with 3 screws you are used to. I have the older Classic Stainless Synthetic which has the longer pull, I can't abide short stocks, and I may try to get the one piece bottom metal for mine some time in the future when I am lacking for anything better to do. Mine is also a 7mm WSM. But those are the only differences I am aware of. Good luck!

    I shouldn't post here as I am not 100% sure but the classic is controlled feed and I think the Shadow is the hybrid- controlled push feed.

    I bought a used Black Shadow in 7mm RemMag off a rancher. Put a Nikon BDC on it. With the factory 26" bbl it's the flattest shooting thing I ever owned. It is push feed but that means nothing.
