I'm considering buying a custom hunting rifle in either 6.5 Creedmoor vs 7mm WSM. I'm planning on hunting mostly deer, antelope, coyotes, and the occasional elk.
I'm going to hunt in the Western US, so open country long range shots are possible, but of course I'll take the closer shot when possible.
I already have those calibers in tactical comp rigs, but they are too heavy to pack.
I reload and am familiar with these calibers' ballistics, barrel life, costs reloading etc.
Please stick to these calibers. Which and why? Your advice is appreciated.
