My 300 win mag is almost done. Now to start the next. I have a Kelbly atlas mag bolt LA
Barrel is a Bartlein 284 blank 8 twist
Ag stock and a trigger tech diamond

Going to be a long range hunter and steel shooter. Resale is a factor.
I do not reload but will do a copper creek pac or something similar.

Cartridge options
28 Nosler
Other options are welcome.

I think this is a fairly straight forward assessment.

The 7mm Rem. Mag. is popular so resale should be easy.
The 7mm Rem. Mag. is definitely a long range hunter and steel shooter with proper bullet selection.
The 7mm Rem. Mag. has a large variety of commercial ammunition available through the internet and at your LGS.
Josh can work up excellent loads for your uses also.

I know what I would do, but since you don't reload, the 7 Sherman Max is out.

For what you have, I would look really closely at either 7RM or 280ai.

If your doing more hunting then target shooting 28 nosler, doing more target shooting then hunting 7 mag imo

All are good rounds and none will have an issue selling in the classifieds on this forum.
Out of those three personally prefer 28 nozzle. Me personally 7mm stw build or 264 winmag
