Hello everyone, i have a want for getting into long range target practicing. I want a show it off cause its badass and big piece, not like 50 bmg big like 300 win mag or 7mm rem mag big. I am about done setting up my 7mm rem mag for long range hunting, and long range fun. I am looking for something most perferably in 284 diameter. i dont like the ultra mag because you only get about 2 times the recoil and use 2 times the powder with about an 8 percent increase in performance... I always liked the look of the weatherby mags. but i am looking for something that is big, efficient, different, and something that has cheap cases, not like 338 lapua expensive, it doesent have to be like 8 bucks for a thing of 50 but at least under 50 bucks for 50 cases. I am looking for something pretty dang fast... im looking for the 220 swift of 284's. As i shoot trap, i am pretty much okay with recoil until you get into anything bigger than the lapua for recoil... I mean everyone freaking uses a 308 winchester at the local long range gun range... would the 7stw be a good choice? Again im looking for something with badass name... i would like something that is also available in a factory rifle perferably... But i can have a new barrel made for it... thanks guys. Happy holidays.
