Can’t decide what to go with. Gun will be mainly used for hunting and banging steel. Would like to get back into shooting competition again at some point and would probably go to a few f class matches. Any input would be great
Thanks for the advice! I’ve been keeping an eye out for a 7mm saum for sale on hereI shoot the 6.5 GAP 4S (6.5 RSAUM) for some matches and I enjoy the cartridge and load performance. However, the 7mm RSAUM can be just a satisfying when you get the right combination of bullet and powder for performance. The Berger Hybrids work well for both, the 6.5 though is little better on the drop and the 7mm is better on the drift at 1,000 yards. The recoil for the 6.5 is a little less based on the 140 gr. bullets compared to the 180 gr. 7mm bullets. Run a 30" barrel and go shoot!
7mm SS... It was specifically designed to shoot heavier bullets in a 700 short action platform without having any COAL length issues.I’ve been debating on a long or short action. I would prefer a short action but might regret it sometime when I wanna shoot heavier bullets
