    Darrel,

    I'm about to build a 7WSM and was pondering barrel length and twist. What did you go with?

    I think you're on the correct path choosing this chambering. After seeing what Darrell's 7WSM can do I'm sorry I own a 338 Lapua! By examining the damage done to the steel plates at 1 mile, his 180gr Bergers were leaving divots about as deep as my 250gr Scenars, while burning a lot less powder with no muzzle brake and way less "report". If I had to do it all over again, 7WSM would get the nod….

    I think that you would miss the horse power and the energy down range when you get up to the 300's doing decent speeds!

    Yes, that's true. But in my case I'd have to run the improved chamber to see any meaningful gain..…which is the route I'm heading in anyway….lol. There is no end to this madness….

    Lol when you start seeing powder going through your measure and reading over 100 gr that's when it gets interesting for sure !!!!

    I have no intention of getting rid of my 338 LM, it gives me too much of a thrill every time I touch it off. Compared to booze and drugs (not to mention "les girls") it's a cheap, painless and legal addiction.

    I have a 25/300 WSM (aka. 25 Pronghorn) which is a joy to shoot and performs exceptionally well with 115 Bergers. It was this rifle that made me decide to go for the 7WSM because of the higher BC's of the 7 mm bullets and the availability of heavier weights. I plan on trying the 162 Amax and the 180 Bergers when the barrel arrives which will, hopefully, be soon?

    Thanks Darrel,

    I decided on a 28 inch, 8 1/2 twist throated long for the 180 Berger. What powder/primer/brass are you using to get that velocity?
