    I just bought a take off barrel from a laredo in 7mm rem mag for a winchester and I wanna rechamber it to something a little more powerful as I already have a rem 7mag but was considering a 300wm necked down because a 7stw is to long does this round have a name other than 7mm/300wm and does any one have any reloading info or tips thanks in advance.
