I would go with one of the short mags over the 7mm RUM. Ammo probably easier to find, and if you reload the components should be cheaper.

I love my WSM's. The RUM will not get you any more Max Point Blank Range (maybe 10-20 yds) but you will feel the increased recoil.

The 7mm RUM is overbore and from everything I have read is the hardest of the RUM's to find a load for very picky in some rifles. Plus if you shoot alot 1,000 rounds is about all you will get out of the barrel. BTW I had the same itch until I done some researching.

I've had the same itch for a while now...I've been doing some research on the .300 wsm and talking to others who have that caliber..I looked at it in the Savage 10 and 11 models I believe and also the Browning A-Bolt Medallion. These are both walnut stock with blue barrel...They also chamber all other wsm calibers...My uncle says that Ruger makes a .300 wsm and some other wsm's but I could not find these calibers on their website.

1- Win M-70 Classic FWT and these will be back in 08
2- Kimber
3- A-bolt while you can still get one. Prefer the Hunter in there wood stocks.

But like I should have said earlier get What You Want. ;\)
