Right now, 300Wby and .257Wby. That's all i have right now.
Completely depends on the situation.
If I had to choose one for all situations I'd grab my 338Edge(13lbs), if I needed an extreme long range hammer I'd grab my 338Allen Magnum (18lbs), if I had to carry it all day long, I'd grab my 7mm Rem Mag (8lbs)
I don't have a single favorite, I have 3 favorites. Funny thing is, my longest biggame kill (around 800yds) is with the 7mm.
Guys I'm shooting a Rem 700 BLD with a 28" Douglas barrel in 7mm STW 1in9 twist. I would like to shoot Bergers 180's hunting bullet. I can not find any load data reguarding this cartridge. Any input would be great. Thanks.
308 Win, 338 Edge, 7mm WSM in that order.
I am with AJ though, it depends on the situation. But if a law was passed stating I could only own 1 rifle, it would be my 308 without hesitaition. All others would exit.
I believe Retumbo has been the most successful powder for heavy bullets in the 7STW.
Retumbo 77gr/Berger 180gr VLD is a very accurate load in my APS 7STW.
.243Win, 7mmRemMag and .300WinMag. I'd be one pissed off feller if I had to get rid of all but one! JohnnyK.
338! In my opinion it's the BEST all around caliber for long range hunting. Best combination of bullet selection,sectional densities,B.C., and down range, on target,delivered K.O. power,and you can still get components at a reasonable price.gun)
30/378 Weatherby custom.

.338 Allen, Edge and Lapua

I would have to choose my 300 WSM shooting 200grn or 210grn bullets. It will kill anything I want it to and more. Efficient, fast, and lots of snot to get the job done.
Thanks Lewis H. Is that a load you came up with or is it from a manual? How is the seating depth on you 7 STW with Berger 180's? Primer?
