I think once you get the .300, you'll be deciding on what to do with the 7MM. =D>

I think there is a lot to the comfort aspect, but if those were to be equal, here are the ballistics:

The 7mm Rem. Mag. was designed by some rifle nuts that hunted and guided for elk. It was designed to kill elk with the 160 grain (Nosler I believe) bullet. They brought the idea to Remington and they adopted it with misgivings and the rest is history. It was made to specifically kill elk and does a good job. So does the 300 Win. Mag. come to think of it. But it kicks more! Just remember it's always good to have another rifle so take the 300 of course!
