I have a 260 short actiona and a 284 long action currently and am looking to add a switch barrel to the short action (has a barloc setup and a swapable bolt head). The 284 is very capable long range but the rifle is pushing 17lbs and a 28” barrel. I am ideally looking for something around 22” in a short action magnum that is better than the 284 for long range in a package around 10-12lbs (260 is under this). So far my front runners are the 7mm Sherman short or the 7mm saum. I don’t mind a little brass work but in general want something somewhat more supported for brass and barrels. Any other suggestions or anyone with experience with the 180 hybrid or eldx/m in the saum or Sherman? I am thinking the saum might have case overall length issues from a magazine.
