I wouldn't let a bunch of guys like us talk you out of what you want. YOu just have to be prepared for whatever you may need to shoot it in the future. For example, brass basically. If you are a reloader, you will be fine. If not, you could have to become a reloader in a few years. haha

When I bought my first 7mm Rem Mag, I went through the same discussion in my mind. I wanted a 7mm Ultra Mag, but after looking at shell cost, and choices, it was easy to decide I would go with the straight 7mm Rem Mag for those reasons. Just depends on what is important to you. I have a buddy with a 270WSM that shoots pretty good.

Do you think that the WSM will continue to fade out or will it stay fairly available? I really love my 7mmwsm, but if the ammo continues to fade out i may have to get a more popular and readily available caliber for long range.

I have 300 rounds of assorted weights 7mm WSM. At the time I paid $24.99 for 150gr pp, $38.99 for 140gr ballistic silvertip, and $42.99 for 160gr fail safe. The short mag seems to me to recoil lighter than the full length 7mm. I also reload.

the way i see it is this way, the short mags and the super short mags were a fad that has passed to some degree, it didn't catch on as well as the gun and ammo makers had hoped. will they fade away into obscurity, probably not. as the fad has run it's course, availability of ammo and rifles will decline and prices will go up somewhat. i think these cartridges will be more economical in the long run to reload for, rather than buying factory ammo. will the 270 wsm take the place of the 270 win., or the 7mm wssm take the place of the 7mm rem. mag, ect.ect. ? probably not, as they have still got a loyal following and have proven themselves many times over the years.

This "fad" has been going along for over a decade now. Not sure at which point we stop calling a cartridge "new" but us gun owners seem to clamp on to a notion and never let it go (like WSMs are a fad). Major rifle manufacturers continue selling WSM guns and ammo is widely available and more popular in sales than some of what we consider "classics" like the .35 Whelen, .257 Roberts and 8mm Mauser. WSSMs sold like hell and you go to Cabelas and there is plenty of ammo for them on the shelves.

Jeez, you can still buy Remington Core-Lokt ammo for 30-40 Krag and NO ONE has made a gun chambered in 30-40 for probably 100 years.
