NEWBIE and first post so sorry if im kicking a dead horse, Looking to upgrade my safe with a new sporter in 7mm My two favorites are: browning a bolt stainless stalker or x-bolt stainless stalker in 7mm WSM or tikka t3 lite stainless in 7mm rem mag. my questions are for more serious expirenced shooters/ owner of either are: is the x-bolt worth the extra $ and do you like the upgraded stuff ? Is 7mm WSM the best choice for long shots on eastern whitetails or would 270 wsm or even 300 wsm be more preferred. I like the WSMs because of the shorter more handy barrel The grip on the tikka feels smaller than either browning. and the tikka's only wsm offerings are 270 or 300. does anyone own the tikka t3 and want to start a browning vs tikka rant?
