Anyone reloading 7mm WSM? Whats your experience?

I'm shooting a Steyr Prohunter in 270WSM with excellent results so I thought it's time to check out a 7WSM

IMO, not much diff between the two. I shoot or have shot most of the 7mm, never been a 270 anything guy. The 280ai will do what ever the 7WSM will do, as will the 7remmag. My fav is the 7mm Dakota & for non magnum, the 280 is tough to beat. I get 3000fps w/ 140gr bullets & 2800fps w/ 160gr bullets, a pretty good rig for just about anything in NA hunting. Better than a 270, nah, just diff.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
