I have a 7mm WSM in a basically new ABolt, so yes I am a 7mm fan. I wanted to get a new long range hunting worthy barrel and stock but not many who work on a Bolts so thinking a new purchase. AND if I am going to get a new one then might as well go with a cartridge designed for the heavy for caliber bullets.I'm a die hard 7mm guy. The guy that .270 enthusiasts don't like. Honestly though, the 27 Nosler has got to be the king of long range .277 cartridges. I hope too see it pick up in popularity.
