6 of one, Half dozen of the other.
Same bullet choices (300 can get a little heavier)
Same ammo prices (choices)
7mm might have a better ballistic coefficient.
Same rifle brand/model offerings.

I just bought a 300, I looked at the 7 and researched my realoading books and found the 300 to be slightly better in speed and power but not enough to make a differance. Both have enough power for anything in North America.
