Beyond the pure emotionalism of this, let me say this. A few days ago I took an Oryx with my 300 WSM. I have owned and hunted with .300 weatherby, .300 ultramag and prefer my smaller cartridge and things just die faster with Better shot placement. That being said I recently was exposed to a 7rmag shooting 180 grain vld's and in terms of wind drift reduction and delivered energy at long (plus400) range was truly an impressive experience! I have too many rifles now, but if I was to choos right now as to single rifle , it would be the 7mm with 180 grain Bullets.
