Default 7mmWSM

i am surprised the 7mmWSM has not become as popular as the 300WSM. since the 7mm rem mag has so many possibilities with ammo selection. seems that the 300WSM has been doing alot better.

I know that the short mag rifles have no where near the ballistics of the long action mags.The 7mm STW has the best ballistics out of all of the 7mm rifles with certain cartridges and loads.You may be able to get better ballistics out of a short mag if you handload your own cartridges although the result would not be that much greater then some of the factory loads.

The 300WSM has had a good head start on the 7MMWSM. By the time the 7 came around Remington was there with its SAUM line. Then you've got the 270WSM competing for the rifle dollars as well. None of this takes away from the 7MMWSM, just slows its market penetration a bit.

Bayonets ...also compare apples with apples...a magnum is usually rated with a 26&quot; barrel length ...put a 24' tube on it like the short mags and lets see how they shoot and how fast they really go. Having had both &quot;kinds&quot; of magnums I can vouch that real world velocities for the big magnum cases are in most cases way overestimated. I could not get my 700 classic 300 win mag to ever beat my 300 wsm (both had 24&quot; barrels) and the recoil difference is real not percieved as some here have said. I personally think the fact that they are less finnicky about any load you shoot thru them whether handloads or factory loads that they are worth every penny not to mention the fact your not lugging a magnum around.
