    It's because I remain objective and with open mind especially when the OP provides pertinent information towards a sound advice ...

    ... if the .300 RUM was not in the mix, I would have recommended the .300 WM over the 7MM RM. Having said that, he might still opt for the .300 WM to fill the gap between the -.06 and .300 RUM. It's a personal choice that only he can make.

    If you were to go with the STW, it would fill the "gap", between the 300 mag, and the 7mag quite handsomely, and with a touch of class to boot. I have a lifetime love affair with this round, and it can do magic when you feed it right. The gamut of bullets available for it now rivals the bigger rounds, with less fuss, and higher B.C. to boot. It is really the perfect overbore cartridge out there. Anymore powder is just noise, and torched throats.
    Don't know if this is one of the op's options, but if you have any questions about it, there's a dedicated thread, on this web site, that will answer any questions. It's a touch of class.
    Good luck in your choice, the sevens have it in spades!

    I had made the statement about buying ammo , but I reload most my bullets. What I was referring to is the use of special ammo that is not normally carry by local stores. I have 30 cal rifles, 30'06 and 308 . These are accurate cartridges ,but I still prefer 7mm cartridges. That it and I still standing by my statement. Have a nice day!

    You can’t go wrong with either choice. I’m partial to the 7mm myself.
