That .260 just looks like a shooter. Good lord...Not that the others don't, but for some reason, my eye went straight to it. Which of the 3 is your personal favorite?

Well I sold the first one (7SAUM) a while back and had a different 7SAUM built similar to the 300WSM (last gun) I like to have all my guns built on teh same platform...they all have the same look and feel so comfortable driving all of them the same.

I love the 260 it is a great/and my favorite non-magnum caliber. It is the gun I enjoy shooting in matches from 0-1000yds.

7mm hands down though is my favorite caliber, and if could only own one, it would be it. I like the short magnums for the shorter throws on the bolt, less powder for same performance as the standard cartridge, and very accurate, and better recoil management then bigger calibers which arent as flat shooting.

The 7mm has some of the best ballistic coefficient rated bullets in the industry making it one of the flattest calibers on the planet, as well as a long range beast as the bullets stay stable way out there. When i shoot competition out to 1500 yds like at the Allegheny Snipers Challenge in West Virginia, the 7mm is my choice.

I just had a 7WSM built I will be shooting this year using 180grn berger Hybrid bullets with. Should push them at 3000fps

300 is a great caliber but in order to take advantage of the caliber you have to shoot the heavies like 208-230grn bullets as that is where the better BC bullets reside. And they are no where near as flat as the 7mms.

The other advantage of the 7mm over the 300 is...the 7mm has less recoil allowing for better and faster follow up shots.

Don't get me wrong I own a variety of 30 cals and love them...I even own some stud 30 cals like the 30-378 and 300 RUM and those are even meaner and flatter then the 7mm but need 90 plus grains of powder to get there, so they are not recoil friendly haha. So i have much respect for the 30 cal, but as far as all around best magnum caliber...7mm hands down whether hunting or shooting comp.

yeah... I like a 2 1/2 pound trigger pull. F class/benchrest shooters like them under a pound haha but that way too light for tactical style shooting.
